A Federal High court in Gusau, Zamfara State has nullified the primary election that brought in DAUDA LAWAL as the People’s Democratic Party’s Governorship candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections.

In a judgment summarily delivered by Justice AMINU BAPPA, the court granted all the prayers by the plaintiff which is to nullify the primary election that produced DAUDA LAWAL and ordered fresh primary election in line with the constitution of PDP and guidelines of the party.

Reacting to the judgment, counsel to the 1st and 4th defendants, BASHIR ABUBAKAR said the party will look into the judgment and appeal it.

You would recall that the May 25 PDP Governorship Primary election conducted by the committee sent from the PDP National Headquarters Abuja, led by ADAMU MAINA-WAZIRI produced Dr. DAUDA LAWAL, as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2023 general polls.

Following the conclusion of the primary election, Mr. IBRAHIM SHEHU-GUSAU and two other PDP governorship aspirants, sought the nullification of the party’s poll over alleged irregularities and noncompliance with the constitution of the PDP.
