Court nullifies Zamfara PDP Gov primaries again

Written by on November 8, 2022

A Federal High Court sitting in Gusau on Tuesday nullified the governorship primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara for the second time.
Justice Aminu Bappa-Aliyu nullified the governorship primaries that produced Dr Dauda Lawal-Dare as the PDP candidate in the 2023 general elections.

Delivering judgment, Bappa-Aliyu held that the PDP lost the opportunity to field a candidate in the 2023 polls for failing to conduct Primaries in line with the guidelines of the Electoral Act 2022 as amended.

The same court had earlier on Sept 16 nullified the first exercise, following alleged irregularities in the Governorship primaries conducted on May 25.
