2019: APC, INEC At War Over Zamfara Primaries
Thu, 11 Oct 2018

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) are at loggerheads over the just concluded primary elections in states to field candidates for 2019 general polls.

The commission said there were no primary elections in Zamfara state and therefore it has barred the APC from presenting candidates in the 2019 general election for failing to conduct primaries into the office of the governor, Senatorial, House of Representatives and the State House of Assembly seats in the state.

But the governing party insisted yesterday that primaries were held between 6 and 7 October at City King Hotel in Gusau where candidates were picked by consensus.

In a leaked memo sent to the national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole, INEC said the party should not expect to send list of candidates for the office of governor, Senatorial, House of Representatives and State Houses of Assembly seats for Zamfara State to its headquarters.

The memo noted that APC did not hold its primaries as scheduled, thus violating the provisions of Sections 87 and 31 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).

LEADERSHIP recalls that, while the commission had directed all political parties to conduct their primary elections between August 18 and October 7 2018, wrangling and infighting prevented the Zamfara State chapter of the APC from conducting their primaries.

In the memo obtained by our correspondent yesterday, INEC said its officials were fully mobilised and deployed for the exercise but it did not take place.

The memo signed by INEC’s acting Secretary, Okechukwu Ndeche, noted: “ Please refer to the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections released by the commission on 9 January, 2018. You would note from the timetable that the conduct of party primaries is scheduled to take place between 18 August and 7 October 2018.

“Kindly also refer to the last schedule communicated by your party to the commission on the date of party primaries nationwide, including Zamfara via your letter Ref APC/NHDQ/INEC/19/18/51 dated 3rd October 2018.

“However, reports received from our office in Zamfara State show that no primaries were conducted by your party in the state, notwithstanding that our officials were fully mobilized and deployed”.

According to the memo, “Consequently, based on the provisions of sections 87 and 31 of the electoral act 2010 (as amended), the commission does not expect that your party will summit names of any candidates from Zamfara State.

“For clarity, our position, therefore, is that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not be fielding candidates for the governorship, National Assembly and State Assembly elections in Zamfara State for the 2019 general elections”.

Confirming the authenticity of the memo sent to the national chairman of the APC, chief press secretary to INEC chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, acknowledged that the memo was sent by INEC to the APC national chairman.

“It was a correspondence between the commission and the APC. It was leaked, obviously,” Oyekanmi said.
