The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Zamfara has displayed lists of Governorship and State Assembly candidates in the state for the upcoming 2019 general elections without the APC candidates.
It has been said several times that the APC didn’t have candidates in the state, so we have not received their candidates.
“This issue is in court and if court asks us to go ahead and receive their list, we will certainly receive their names.
“Therefore, since date for the submission of candidates has been passed, we shouldn’t go on that now; we should concentrate on what will be beneficial to the communities which is voter register, claims, objections and verification,”
In same vein,The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Friday did not publish any name as the governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State in the provisional list of governorship candidates for the 2019 general election.
INEC’s refusal to publish any governorship candidate for the APC, may not be unconnected to a Court Order restraining it from accepting or publishing any name except the name of Uche Nwosu as the authentic governorship candidate.
It will be recalled that the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole had forwarded the name of Uzodinma to INEC as the party’s governorship candidate, in defiance of the Court Order, which was also served him and the party.
Sixty seven candidates made the provisional list including, former Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha (PDP), Senator Ifeanyi Ararume (APGA), among others.
