The Independent National Electoral Commission has reacted to ruling of the Appeal Court judgement on Monday which nullified the participation of the All progressives Congress in the Zamfara State election.
Recall that Naija News reported that the Appeal court sitting in Sokoto led by Justice Tom Yakubu on Monday set aside the judgement of the Zamfara High Court on the primaries of APC that produced the party’s candidates for the general elections.
