Court of Appeal Upholds primaries in Zamfara


The Appeal court sitting in Sokoto has dismissed the appeal challenging
the judgment of the lower court which upheld the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara state.

The court also asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to accept the primaries for the APC’s governorship, senatorial, house of representatives and state Assembly seats.


The National Secretariat of the All Progressive Congress was also barred from replacing the names of those who won the primary elections of the party on 7th October 2018.

Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja, affirmed the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), foreclosing the party from participating in the election.

She also held that the position adopted by INEC with regards to Zamfara APC was in tandem with the law and would help to instill discipline.
