Abdulaziz Yari, governor of Zamfara state, says elections will not take place in the state if candidates of the ruling party are excluded.

Speaking at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally in Talata Mafara local government area of the state, the governor maintained that the party conducted primaries which produced candidates for the forthcoming elections.

He added that it will be a huge mistake and threat to national security for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to exclude APC candidates in the state from contesting.

INEC had barred the ruling APC from fielding candidates for elective positions in the state over the party’s inability to conduct primaries as a result of intra-party crisis.

“There is no way elections will be conducted in Zamfara state without APC candidates, despite Zamfara High Court judgment which confirmed that APC conducted primaries in the state, INEC is saying we can’t field candidates” Yari said.

“All our actions are based on Zamfara High Court Order, we are therefore advising INEC to obey the order and include the names of Zamfara APC candidates list submitted to the commission.”

Yari, however, asked the people to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and all APC candidates contesting for the elections.
