The All Progressive Congress (APC) won all the chairmanship positions in the Saturday’s local council election in Zamfara state.

Garba Muhammad, chairman of the Zamfara State Independent Electoral Commission (ZSIEC), said all the candidates of the party in the 14 councils, met all the provisions of the electoral law and had been declared winners of the election in their respective councils.

He said 14 political parties including Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) participated in the election.

But in an earlier statement signed by Hassan Nasiha, chairman of the PDP, the party said it was boycotting the election, citing its decision to challenge the election of Abdulaziz Yari, governor of the state, at the supreme court, as its reason for not participating in the election.


Muhammad commended all stakeholders, including security agencies, for ensuring the success of the election.
