Zamfara: INEC meets, to decide Monday

Prof Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday said it would study the Supreme Court judgement in Zamfara State and come out with the commission’s decision on Monday May 27, 2019.

INEC’s national commissioner, and Chairman, Information, and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye made this disclosure in a press statement released by the commission  on Friday, shortly after The Supreme Court delivered its judgment.

The Apex Court in an unanimous decision said said the All Progressives Congress (APC)  did not conduct primary elections and therefore, did not participate in the 2019 general election. It therefore nullified the votes cast for APC candidates across board in the election.
