Following the Supreme court judgment on Friday nullifying the election of the candidates of the ruling All Progressive Congress in Zamfara in the last general election, the Independent National Electoral Commission said it will comply with the judgment.

INEC on Saturday during the press briefing declared the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle and others winners of the 2019 general election.

The commission also warned political parties to be conversant with the implications of the Supreme Court judgment in the case of Zamfara State.

The chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu appealed to political parties intending to field candidates in the November 9 governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi States to adhere strictly to the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 Bayelsa and Kogi State governorship elections for which party primaries have been scheduled for between the August 2 and 29.
