Supreme Court nullifies all APC candidates’ elections in Zamfara

The Supreme Court has nullified the elections of all the candidates of APC in Zamfara State in the 2019 general elections.

The judgement delivered by Justice Adamu Galunje held that the Appeal Court in Sokoto was right when it agreed with the respondents that the party did not conduct primaries in the state.

According to the judge, the votes cast for the APC in the election were wasted votes because a party that has no candidate cannot be said to have won an election.

A unanimous judgment of a five-man panel led by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, declared that the party with the highest number of votes cast at the election outside the appellants is the winner of the election.

According to the judgment, the persons with the second highest number of votes in each elective position will now be declared winners.

This came following a case filed by the APC lawmaker representing Zamfara Central district, Senator Kabiru Marafa, and 129 others.
