The governorship candidate of the all progressives grand alliance in Zamfara state, Alhaji Sani Shinkafi today secured an order of substituted service on the All Progressive Congress and its candidate, Mukhta Shehu Idris.
The election petition tribunal ordered that all the processes should be pasted on the wall of the national headquarters of APC in Abuja.
Justice Binta Amina gave the order at the inaugural sitting of the elections petitions tribunal which was relocated to Abuja due to the activities of armed bandits in Zamfara state.
The counsel to Shinkafi and Apga, Ifeanyi Mbaeri had asked the tribunal for an order of substituted service on APC and its candidate by delivering the petition and all processes at the APC national secretariat or by pasting the petition and all other processes at the entrance gate or any other conspicuous location.
It would be recalled that Shinkafi had asked the Zamfara state governorship and state house of assembly elections petitions tribunal to nullify the governorship elections conducted in the state on march 9 and order for fresh polls without the participation of Apc and its candidate Mukhta Shehu Idris.
