Court nullifies PDP governorship primary in powerful Northern state

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been stopped from fielding a governorship candidate in the 2023 governorship election in Zamfara state.

A federal high court in Gusau, the state capital, on Tuesday, November 8, nullified the governorship primary of the umbrella party, Channels Television reported.

This will be the second time the PDP governorship primary that produced Dauda Lawal-Dare was nullified in Zamfara state.

Justice Aminu Bappa, in his ruling on Tuesday, stopped the party from fielding any candidate to contest the governorship election in the state in 2023

The court had previously cancelled the umbrella party’s primary in the state after Ibrahim Shehu, and two other aspirants in the election challenged the credibility of the primary that produced Lawal-Dare.

The court in September ordered a rerun in which Lawal-Dare still emerged as the party’s candidate.
