INEC reveals Reason for including Zamfara APC Candidates on the Ballot

INEC reveals Reason for including Zamfara APC Candidates on the Ballot



PoliticsNGR has been furnished with an official statement from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on the inclusion of Zamfara APC Candidates in the 2019 General Elections.

Previously, INEC was barred by the Federal High Court, Abuja from fielding candidates of the APC in Zamfara State in the 2019 General Elections but today following an order by the Court of Appeal, the electoral body has now put the candidates on the ballot.

Below is a transcript of the full statement;

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has consistently maintained that it will always obey court judgments and orders.

In the case of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, the Federal High Court, Abuja and the Zamfara State High Court issued conflicting orders relating to the participation of the APC in the two strands of elections scheduled for 23rd February and 9th March 2019.

While the former ruled that the APC, having failed to conduct party primaries cannot field candidates in the said election, the latter decided that it can field candidates having conducted valid party primaries.

However, the Court of Appeal, Abuja Judicial Division on 21st February 2019 set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja for “lack or want of jurisdiction on the part on the lower court.” This in effect means that the Zamfara State High Court’s decision that the APC can field candidates for the National Assembly, Governorship and State Assembly elections is the only valid and subsisting order.

Consequently, the Commission has today, in compliance with the said order, restored the APC to the ballot in the National Assembly, Governorship and State House of Assembly elections scheduled for 23rd February and 9th March 2019.”
