Yesterday’s ruling of the Supreme Court which nullified the victories of the APC in all the elections held in Zamfara State came to the APC as a rude shock and led the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), going into an emergency meeting.
Speaking shortly after the meeting, Ntufam Hilliard Eta, the APC National Vice Chairman, South South, said though it is very painful, the party has no option than to accept the ruling of the Supreme Court that nullified its victories at the governorship as well as state/federal legislative polls in Zamfara State.
He also said the party had learnt some lessons from the Zamfara scenario.
“It’s a sad day for every member of the APC. It’s a very sad day for us.” Asked if the party mismanaged the crisis, Mr Eta said, “I don’t think the party mismanaged the crisis in our Zamfara chapter. We don’t have any option than to accept the judgment of the Supreme Court and go ahead and learn some lessons from it. That is what I can say for now.”
