The APC primary election is taking place in the 332 wards across all the local government areas of the state.

The election is conducted by a committee led by Zamfara State Governor, Abdul’Aziz Yari, and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as one of its members.

The committee was set up by the APC national leadership to ensure a free and fair primary that would be accepted by party members in the state.

Following the withdrawal of the three aspirants, 14 candidates will now battle for the APC ticket in a bid to succeed Rauf Aregbesola, should the party win the September 22 governorship election.
