The Supreme Court on Friday ruled that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the authentic winner of the March 9th governorship election in Zamfara state.

Delivering judgment in an appeal filed by the PDP, the apex court upheld the ruling of the Court of Appeal in Sokoto that the All Progressives Congress (APC) did not conduct any governorship primaries ahead of the governorship election and so was not eligible to contest the election.

The court in a unanimous judgment by a five-member panel on Friday decided that a party that had no valid candidate cannot be said to have emerged winner of the recently conducted general elections.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared the APC candidate, Mukhtar Idris, winner of the elections after he polled 534,541 votes despite controversies trailing his emergence as the party’s flag bearer.
