APC sweeps Zamfara LG Council polls

John Odigie Oyegun, APC National Chairman

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has won all the chairmanship positions in Saturday’s local council election in the state.

The Chairman of the Zamfara State Independent Electoral Commission, Garba Muhammad, said on Sunday in Gusau that all the candidates of the party in the 14 councils had met all the provisions of the electoral law and had been declared winners of the election in their respective councils.

He said 14 political parties including the Peoples Democratic Party, participated in the election.

The PDP, however, in a statement signed by its State Chairman, Hassan Nasiha, on eve of the election, said it was boycotting the election.

The party also said since it was still challenging the election of Governor Abdulaziz Yari at the Supreme Court, it would not participate in the election.

Mr. Muhammad, Zamfara electoral agency boss, commended all stakeholders, including security agencies, for ensuring the success of the election. (NAN)
