APC postpones Presidential campaign rally in Zamfara over INEC's decision on election

APC postpones Presidential campaign rally in Zamfara over INEC's decision on election

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has postponeded its Presidential Campaign Rally in Zamfara from February 3 to February 10.

The State Chairman of the Party, Lawal Liman disclosed this in Gusau on Friday.

February 3 had earlier been scheduled for the Presidential campaign rally in Katsina and Zamfara states.

The APC chapter in the state, had constituted a 60-man Committee headed by Governor Abdula’ziz Yari for the rally in the state.

Liman urged the party supporters and the public to bear all the inconveniences that may arise as a result of the postponement.

Liman did not give any reason for the change in the date.

However, it may not be unconnected with the decision of INEC on elections in the state.

INEC has stated that the APC would not field any Candidate in Zamfara for the State and Federal elections scheduled for February 16 and March 2.

According to him, the date for the commencement of Governorship, Senate, House of Representatives and State Assembly Campaigns has also been rescheduled.

“We had arranged to start the campaign on Monday February 4, 2019, but now it has been rescheduled to Sunday, February 3, 2019,” he said.

He appealed to APC members in the state to come out enmasse to welcome the President and participate in the APC campaign rally in the state.

Yari had earlier on Thursday said that the state chapter of the APC has concluded the arrangements to receive its Presidential Campaign Team on Sunday.

The governor also said that Buhari would be accorded the best campaign rally which would run for two days.
