The All Progressives Congress APC in Zamfara State, its governor-elect, and other winners of the 2019 general elections on the platform of the party, have resolved to approach the Supreme Court for a final resolution of the crisis that engulfed the party in the state.

The party has also written to the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, to notify him about the judgment of the Court of Appeal delivered on March 25th.

In a letter dated March 26th, written on behalf of the governor-elect and 38 others by their counsel, Magaji Abubakar Mahmmud SAN, the APC members said the Appeal Court judgment only allowed the appellant’s appeal and set aside the judgment of the trial Court, but did not “make any positive consequential order.”

A factional leader of the party in the state, Kabir Marafa, had at the Court of Appeal challenged the judgment of a Zamfara State High Court, which gave the APC the go-ahead to field candidates during the 2019 polls.
