The All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced that it will not feature in the Dec. 9, Bakura State constituency supplementary election in Zamfara State.
Chairman of the State APC Publicity Committee, Alhaji Ibrahim Magaji, made this known to newsmen on Tuesday.
Press had reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday declared the Dec. 5, bye-election in the state as inconclusive.
This was due to the cancellation of results in 14 polling units.

The Commission also fixed Wednesday, Dec. 9, for supplementary election in the 14 polling units that were cancelled.
But Magaji said that the party decided to boycott the election because it has lost confidence in both INEC and security agencies in the state.
“The election was marred by intimidation, harassment and large-scale violence that culminated in snatching of ballot boxes, kidnapping of electoral officials and killing of innocent people.
“Our representatives attended the stakeholders meeting organised by INEC in Gusau on Monday Dec. 7, to fine-tune measures put in place for the smooth conduct of the supplementary election.
“The meeting was supposed to be attended by security agencies in the state because of their pivotal role as critical stakeholders in the election, but neither their heads nor their representatives attended the meeting,” he said.
Magaji further stated that the party, reviewed the issues pertaining the election and suggested that the election be shifted to a more convenient date but INEC went ahead with the plans to conduct the election on Dec. 9.
