The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Zamfara State has rejected the result of the February 3, 2024 Shinkafi State House of Assembly rerun election.
The party said that the result of the rerun polls will not see the light of day in the election petition tribunal.
According to the APC, the final election results declared by the Returning Officer, is a clear violation of the Electoral Act 2022 and disregard for the rule of law, total rape of democracy and will not stand legally and morally.
It said it was a daylight robbery of the constitutional rights of the people of Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
“We members of APC in Zamfara State stand with judgements of the two courts, not selection by INEC and its co-travellers in the subversion of the will of the people of Shinkafi Local Government Area,” a statement signed by Alhaji Yariman Kwaren Ganuwa, its Publicity Secretary, said.
“The good people of Shinkafi State Constituency should please remain calm. Another legal battle has just begun to reclaim our stolen mandate.
“Hon Usman Shettima Mahmud Aliyu of APC remains the authentic winner of the election with the highest lawful votes.
“The ballot is sacrosanct. We are strongly determined to uphold and protect the integrity of the nation’s electoral process.”
The party added that the purported “selection of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Mustapha Usman Shinkafi” will not stand.
