APC Cancels Zamfara Governorship Primaries

The National Working Committee (NWC)  of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the cancellation of the Zamfara State governorship primaries.

The party in a statement by its acting national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, early Thursday morning did not give a new date for the primaries but promised a new date will be “released as soon as possible”.

The primary which was rescheduled several times failed to hold due to late arrival of the election committee from the national headquarters in Abuja.

It was earlier rescheduled for October 1 but was again marred by violence. An exasperated state governorship primary committee then cancelled the election.

Governor Abdulaziz Yari had said the governorship primaries in the state would be suspended indefinitely unless the party’s national committee “followed the documented guidelines for the conduct of exercise.”
