Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise the party’s candidates in Zamfara for the forthcoming elections.

In a letter dated February 13, Oshiomhole said that the judgment of the court of appeal in Sokoto allows the party to field candidates for elections in the state.

The letter, with reference number APC/NIDQ/INEC/19/019/08, asked the commission to obey the court order as soon as possible.

In another letter, Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, had asked INEC to postpone the elections in the state due to litigation.

“I refer to our previous correspondence to you dated 25th January, 2019 in respect of our Party’s Candidates for Governorship, Deputy Governorship. Senate, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly in respect of the 2019 General Elections for Zamfara State,” the statement read.

“We wish to inform you that the Court of Appeal, Sokoto Division on the 13th February, 2019 dismissed the Appeal of the Appellants challenging the judgment of the Trial Court delivered on 25th January, 2019

“We therefore urge the Commission to give effect to the said judgment of the High Court of Justice, Zamfara State delivered on the 25th of January, 2019.

“We look forward to you treating the matter with the urgency it requires.

“Please find attached a Certified True Copy of the Enrolled Orders/Rulings of the Court of Appeal delivered on 13th February, 2019.“
