Nigeria elections: APC reacts to Appeal Court’s ruling on Zamfara APC

All Progressives Congress

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, Alhaji Lawal Liman, has lauded the judgement delivered by the Appeal Court, Abuja Division, on the party’s primary elections in the state.

Liman, who made the commendation while speaking to NAN in Gusau on Friday, described the party’s victory as a welcome development.

Owojela's Blog had reported that the Appeal Court Abuja Division had Thursday set aside a high court judgement, which upheld the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), not to accept the list of APC candidates in Zamfara State.

Reacting, Liman said that “this victory is not limited to APC and people of the state, we consider this as a victory to democracy.
“I think what the Appeal Court Abuja Division has done is a good step to protect democracy in this country.

“Democracy is all about protection of the rights of citizens, so this judgement has protected our rights,” he said.

The APC chairman urged aggrieved members of the party to join hands with the party to ensure the victory of the party in the state.

“As I always say, Zamfara remains a stronghold of APC, people in the state are with APC leadership of Gov. Abdula’ziz Yari and President Muhammad Buhari,” he said.

He thanked APC supporters in the state over their support and cooperation despite all the crisis.

“We sincerely have to thank our members from all 147 wards across 14 local government areas of the state.

“Despite the crisis, our members remained with us and whenever we call them they respond to us,” he added.

Liman assured people of the state that the APC governorship candidate in the state, Alhaji Mukhtar Shehu-Idris, has good plans for the people of the state.
