APC Tackles INEC over Zamfara, Says It Will Present Candidates for 2019 Elections
Thu, 11 Oct 2018

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were on collision course yesterday as the ruling party rejected the electoral body and rejected its disqualification from participation in the 2019 general elections in Zamfara State.

The INEC had disqualified the APC from presenting candidates for the impending general elections following the failure of the party to conduct primaries within stipulated time. By INEC guidelines all primaries were to have been held by last Sunday and lists of candidates submitted to it by October 18, 2018.

But the APC countered in a letter by its National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, to INEC that its primaries were conducted within time and that the party would be filling the list of its candidates with the electoral body by the deadline.

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), however, warned yesterday that the electoral body would be preparing the ground for anarchy if it reversed itself and allow APC to field candidates in the state.
The position of INEC was contained in a leaked letter to Oshiomhole on Tuesday.

However, the party replied INEC wednesday claiming that primary elections actually took place in Zamfara State.

In the letter dated October 10, 2018 and signed by Oshiomhole, the party said that INEC did not capture the true situation of the APC primaries in the state.

Titled, “Failure to Conduct Party Primaries in Zamfara State within the Stipulated Time-Frame”, the commission said that APC failed to conduct its primary elections in Zamfara within the stipulated time-frame.
In its submissions to INEC, APC said, “The contents of your letter seem to conclude that no primaries were conducted by the APC in Zamfara State. We wish to state emphatically that nothing can be farther from the actual situation in Zamfara State.

“Kindly find attached a comprehensive report from the Zamfara Electoral Committee of the APC and signed by all the members on the conduct of primary elections for the Zamfara State held between October 6th and 7th, 2018″.

Explaining what happened, APC said following the high level of friction, disagreements and threatened violence by various political camps before the primaries, all the aspirants met at City King Hotel, Gusau, to find a truce.

It said that after hours of intense horse-trading, a consensus was reached within the spirit and within the context of the Electoral Act and the constitution of the party on the basis of which a list was produced which was confirmed/affirmed by all delegates present.

According to APC the consensus arrangement was done in strict compliance with section 87 (6) of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as Amended).

Oshiomhole stated, “Therefore, the claim in your letter under reference that “no primaries were conducted by your party In the state, notwithstanding that our officials were fully mobilized and deployed could only be referring to their observation that actual voting did not take place, which is not the only mode prescribed for producing candidates in the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended).
