Zamfara APC Candidates' Elections Nullified, As Supreme Court Declares PDP Winner of Poll

The elections of all the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State in the 2019 general elections, were on Friday (today) nullified by the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

In a unanimoujudgment of the five-man panel led by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, the Supreme Court of Nigeria declared the first runners-up in the 2019 general elections in the state as the winners of all the posts earlier declared to have been won by the APC and its candidates.

The lead judgment which was delivered by Justice Paul Galinje, upheld the decision of the Sokoto Division of the Court of Appeal to the effect that the APC did not conduct any valid primary election and as such had no candidate for any of the elections in the state.

The Supreme Court  described the votes polled by the APC candidates in the elections as wasted, adding that the party and the candidates with the second highest votes and the spread in the various elections were the valid winners.

The apex court's judgment centres on the governorship, state House of Assembly and the National Assembly elections conducted in Zamfara State on February 23 and March 11, 2019.

APC candidates, including the outgoing governor of the Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, who was elected to the Senate, had won most of the offices contested for in the 2019 elections with the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidates, placing first runners-up in the polls.
