The Independent Election Commission, INEC, has advanced reason the All Progressive Congress, APC, was missing out in its result sheets for Zamfara State governorship and House of Assembly elections.
The ruling party was nowhere to be found on INEC sheets in yesterday’s election, an omission which generated concern.
Reacting, Rose Oriaran-Anthony, National Secretary of the Commission, said in a statement that the party was omitted from result sheets because of the court order that was saddened.
The statement read in part: “The commission has just discovered that because of the suddenness of the court order, the party (APC) was omitted for the governorship result sheets. This omission is deeply regretted,” the statement read.
“As a solution, the commission has decided to manually create columns in each of the Result Sheets after the last printed party, ZLP, and insert the APC. This does not affect any other information on the results sheet.”
