We’ll wait for Supreme Court’s pronouncement on Zamfara APC —INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said that it will wait for the pronouncement of the Supreme Court before taking any decision on the primary elections of the All Progressives’ Congress in Zamfara state.

The commission had withheld certificates of return of the state governor-elect, Alhaji Mukhtar Shehu, following the judgment of the court of appeal in Sokoto.

However, the APC and the governor-elect, in a letter to the commission last week, said the court of appeal did not nullify their primary elections.

INEC’s National commissioner and chairman of its information and voter education committee, Mr.Festus Okoye, in Abuja, said the commission was law-abiding.

Meanwhile, the state governor and senator-elect, Abdulaziz Yari, led other federal lawmakers-elect from the state to an induction course in Abuja.
