The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission Professor Mahmood Yakubu on Saturday said the Commission will on Monday issue a certificate of return to the winner of the Zamfara State gubernatorial election on Monday, the 27th of May 2019 in Abuja.
This comes just twenty-four hours after the Supreme Court ruled that the All Progressives Congress did not conduct valid primaries in the lead up to the polls.
The court on Friday ruled that the runners-up in the gubernatorial, Senate, House of Representatives and state elections be recognized as the winners.
The Peoples Democratic Party is the biggest beneficiary of that judgement.
The Chairman told journalists that the landmark ruling is a lesson for political parties about the importance of conducting valid primaries.
