INEC: APC Lied, Didn’t Submit Zamfara Candidates’ List by KEVIND: 8:18am On Oct 23, 2018
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied receiving any list of candidates for Zamfara State from the All Progressives Congress (APC) as claimed by the party.

The electoral body had disqualified APC from fielding candidates for the 2019 general elections in Zamfara State on the grounds that the party did not conduct primary elections in the state within the time it stipulated in its guidelines.

But the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lanre Isa-Onilu, had told THISDAY after the deadline for submission of candidates’ for the presidential and National Assembly elections on October 18, 2018, that the party submitted candidates for all positions in all states of the federation, including Zamfara.
“We submitted applications for all the positions in all the states, including Zamfara,” Isa-Onilu told THISDAY.

However, INEC National Commissioner on Voter Education and Information, Mr. Festus Okoye, told THISDAY on phone yesterday that the commission did not receive the list of candidates from Zamfara State from the ruling party.

He said based on the provisions of Section 31 and 87 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended), “the commission does not expect that your party will submit names of any candidates from Zamfara State.”

Okoye added, “For clarity, our position is that the APC, will not be fielding candidates for the governorship, National Assembly and state assembly elections in Zamfara State for the 2019 for the general elections.

“There are two matters relating to the party primary election conducted in Zamfara State pending before the State High court and Federal High Court in Zamfara. Those two matters are yet to be decided.
“So APC did not submit any list from Zamfara and INEC did not release any list of candidates from Zamfara.”

INEC in d eyes of all. How they handle this till d end will determine whether d already devalued credibility of INEC will appreciate. All eyes must now be focused on d judiciary whom am sure d authorities are hoping to get a 'jankara' judgement and we will now to be told that it was a court order that reinstated Zamfara list.

Yet you also failed to see or
acknowledge this;

"..The electoral body had disqualified APC from fielding candidates for the 2019 general elections in Zamfara State on the grounds that the party did not conduct primary elections in the state within the time it stipulated in its guidelines...."

In fact it seems the APC is under-rating the legal implication of this their lawlessness should INEC go ahead to even allow them field candidates in the Zamfara election.

It is not a must that political parties conduct primaries to pick their candidates. The law permits them to pick by any method they want to, including consensus.

But the APC has come out to claim that Primaries were held in the states for all elective post and also claim APC were on ground to monitor the primaries.

So do you know better than APC who claimed they did had primaries. That's not even the case here, they didn't "submit candidates names" before and on the stipulated times.
