The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa has threatened to boycott the supplementary governorship election scheduled for Thursday.
The ruling party told INEC that it will not participate in the election if it is conducted on the scheduled day.
Okay Nigeria reported that INEC fixed March 28, 2019, which is a Thursday to conduct supplementary election following a court ruling which vacated an order to stop the process.
However, Ahmed Lawal, Organising Secretary of APC in the state, said that the party had rejected the Thursday’s date and communicated its position to the electoral body.
In his words, he said:
“We are not going to participate in the election, if INEC is going to conduct it on Thursday.
“I don’t know why INEC is rushing, as conducting this election on Thursday will disenfranchise many voters, particularly workers and students who need to go to work and schools,” Lawan said.
