2023: Court bars PDP from fielding guber candidate in Zamfara, nullifies governorship primary election

Our reporter| The Federal High Court sitting in Gusau, Zamfara State on Tuesday for the second nullified the governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which produced Dauda Lawal Dare.

The presiding judge, Justice Aminu Bappa also ruled that the party will not field any governorship candidate for the 2023 governorship election.

The court had in September 2022 nullified the party’s governorship primary election that produced Dauda Lawal Dare for some irregularities.

The court said it nullified the election because women were not represented as delegates which made the party conduct fresh elections with women delegates.

However, in the rerun primary election, Dauda Lawal Dare also won with over 400 votes, and one of the contestants, Shehu Bakaoye again challenged the result of the governorship primary election in court.
