An external solicitor to the APC Ahmed RAJI SAN has written a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC demanding for the release of certified true copy CTC of INEC form CF 001 submitted by Dr. Dauda Lawal the PDP gubernatorial candidate for Zamfara.
Form CF 001 is the INEC form which clearly demanded in RED to show necessity that all academic certificates MUST be attached by candidate vying for an elective position.
Raji, has written a letter dated 21st November 2022 addressed to the INEC Secretary Abuja demanding for the release of the certified true copy of the form submitted by Dauda Lawal.
The letter reads “we are the solicitors to the All Progressive Congress (APC) on whose instructions we write to you”.
It further reads “we humbly apply for the Certified True Copies of form CF001, submitted by Dauda Lawal, the person whose name was earlier submitted as the Zamfara State gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the forthcoming 2023 General Elections”.
It could be recalled that, two separate suits were filed at the Federal High Court, Gusau challenging the inconsistency in the documents submitted to the INEC by the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Zamfara.
The Court of Appeal on Wednesday nullified the PDP primary election, which produces Dr. Dauda Lawal as the PDP gubernatorial candidate for Zamfara.
The judgement came not more than two weeks after the Federal High Court sitting in Gusau barred PDP from filling a governorship candidate for the 2023 polls due to reasons of non-compliance with the provisions of section 82(1) of the electoral act 2022 as amended.
