Rivers, Benue, lead states APC guber aspirants faces disqualification

  • The governorship and house of assembly aspirants of the APC are facing disqualification threats in Benue, Rivers, Kwara and Kogi state
  • The threats are a result of discrepancies that arise from the party’s primaries, either within the party or from the opposition parties
  • In Benue state, for instance, the former PDP chairman, Barnabas Gemade, and ex-attorney general of the federation, Mike Aondoakaa have dragged the APC governorship candidate, Hyacinth Alia, to court

As governorship campaigns are set for commencement on October 4, the official date stipulated by the National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), some governorship aspirants of the ruling party could be disqualified before the campaigns start.

Nigerian Tribune reported that the reasons for their disqualifications range from different court cases emanating from the primaries that produce many of them.
