While the Presidential and National Assembly elctions come up on February 16, the Governorship and state House of will be conducted on March 2, 2019.

The independent National Electiral Commmission on Wednesday’s night said APC in Zamfara cannot field candidates for the elections based on its earlier stand and the judgment of Federal High Court, Abuja.

However, the names of APC candidates in Rivers State are missing in the list of political parties and candidates participating in the 2019 Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state.

It was observed that APC is missing in the list published at the INEC Secretariat in Port Harcourt on Thursday 31, January 2019.

This is also in line with the judgement of Justice James Omotosho which restrained INEC to drop the APC from participating in the elections in Rivers state.
