The Peoples Democratic Party in Zamfara State has accepted the rule by a Federal High Court and fixed Friday for a rerun of gubernatorial primary in the state.
The Daily Reality reported the train of crisis in the party that led the court to nullify the party’s governorship primary that produced Alh. Dauda Lawal Dare as a winner.
The court cited flagrant violation of party’s constitutional provisions and guidelines as reasons of invalidating the election, consequently, ruled the election be reruned.
Alhaji Ahmad Sani Kaura, the state chairman of the party, stated that preparations were on top gear for the peaceful conduct of the primary election in the state.
He said, “The Peoples Democratic Party is a law- abiding entity and we are complying with the court order to conduct a fresh primary election. The contestants remain the same, Alhaji Dauda Lawal Dare, Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, Wadatau Madawaki and Hafiz Nahuche.
“The national headquarters of our party has scheduled the rerun to hold on Friday, 23rd September, 2022. Officials from the headquarters are coming to Gusau to conduct a peaceful and acceptable election.
“As I’m talking to you, congresses are being held in wards to ensure gender compliance because part of what court said was that women were excluded from the delegate list. We are including them now,” he added.
