The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has expressed regrets over the omission of the acronym of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the results sheet for Saturday’s Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Zamfara.
This is contained in a statement signed by the commission’s National Secretary, Mrs Rose Oriaran-Anthony, and made available in GUsau on Friday.
The statement with reference number INEC/SEC/265/Vol.ll/X and dated 8/3/2019, was circulated to the chairmen of all political parties and other stakeholders in the state.
It recalled its earlier compliance to a Zamfara High Court ruling No. ZMS/GS/52/2018, which ordered the commission to include the APC on the ballot paper for all elections in the state which made it possible for the party to participate in the Feb. 23 Presidential and National Assembly elections.
