Court Of Appeal Sacks Zamfara Governor, Orders Rerun


The Court of Appeal in Abuja has voided the election of Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Lawal the March 18 governorship election winner.

However, the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenged the victory of Lawal, who ran under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The tribunal had upheld Lawal’s election, but the APC proceeded to the Appeal Court.

On Thursday, a three-member panel of justices annulled Lawal’s victory and ordered a rerun of the election in three local government areas.

The affected LGAs are Maradun, Birnin Magaji and Bukuyun.
