APC boycotts Sokoto LG elections

The Sokoto State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has decided not to participate in the forthcoming local government (LG) election in the state.

The State’s APC Chairman, Alhaji Isah Achida, said at a news conference on Sunday in Sokoto that the decision was based on the party’s lack of confidence in the present Sokoto State Independent Electoral Commission, (INEC).

Achida said their lack of confidence is hinged on the fact that members of the state electoral commission are all card-carrying members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“Indeed, all of them are very close cohorts of the leadership of the government in Sokoto State, who are always dancing to its tunes,” he said.
