Looks like it’s a dead end for some political gladiators. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the All Progressives Congress will not be allowed to participate in any elections except the Presidential poll in Rivers and Zamfara States.

The INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, said this at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday. Yakubu’s position comes despite a letter written to INEC by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), asking the commission to recognise the APC in Zamfara.

The APC in Zamfara and Rivers states had threatened that they would not allow any elections to take place in their states if they were not allowed to participate in the governorship, National Assembly and state assembly elections. INEC has taken a decision.
