The All Progressives Congress (APC) has annulled the Zamfara State governorship primaries.
The party adduced malpractices, such as snatching of election materials and result sheets, as reasons for the annulment.
In a statement by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, the party stated that a new date for the conduct of a fresh primary would be announced soon.
The party also condemned what it termed unauthorised congresses held in Edo State into the Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly.
Describing the exercise null and void, the party, which thereby appointed Hajia Farida Odangi Suleiman to conduct the primaries, assured that the Odangi-led committee would make available the list of aspirants screened for the exercise and conduct a transparent primary election in accordance with the guidelines and constitution of the APC.
Meanwhile, a member of the National Assembly, Senator Umar Kurfi (Katsina Central), is among lawmakers that would not be returning to the Senate next year following his defeat in the APC senatorial primaries.
Kurfi was defeated by former Managing Director of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA), Kabiru Abdullahi Barkiya. Read more
