Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara state cancelled the primaries which held in the state due to election malpractices.

The state's national working committee led by Abubakar Faki said the process was also marred by violence which included snatching of election materials and result sheets by the government officials.

A statement by the APC national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the result sheets taken by government officials were taken to the state's Government House.

In another report by Legit.ng, the governor of Zamfara state, Abdul'aziz Yari, faulted the decision of the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to cancel the governorship primaries in the state.

Yari also accused Professor Abubakar Faki, chairman of the primary committee, of bias, alleging that he was sponsored by the opposition to influence the outcome of the elections.

The governor who stated this in Gusau, the state capital on Thursday, October 4, insisted that the election was credible.
