We'll Present Consensus Candidates For Zamfara Elections, Oshiomhole Tells INEC

Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has insisted that the party will present candidates for elective positions in Zamfara State in the 2019 general election.

He stated this in a statement he signed on Wednesday, in response to the directive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that the party could not field candidates for the 2019 elections in ths state, on the premise that primaries did not hold to select candidates for political positions.

In a letter to the party, signed by the acting Secretary to the Commission, Okechukwu Ndeche, INEC had stated that according to the timetable released, all primary elections should have been between August 18 and October 7, 2018, but APC failed to conduct any in the state, and as such could not field candidates for the 2019 elections.
