The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates in Zamfara State.
Malami said his letter was informed by a petition he received from the law firm of M.A Mahmud & Co.
The letter emerged following the ruling of a Court of Appeal in Sokoto State dismissing the appeal challenging the qualification of APC candidates for the coming General elections in Zamfara.
The Minister also asked the INEC to postpone the House of Assembly, governorship, and National Assembly elections in Zamfara State, to allow the APC prepare for the polls.
