Despite court disqualification APC will participate in Bayelsa gov poll – INEC

The All Progressive Congress (APC) will participate in the governorship election of Bayelsa State, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said.

This is despite the party being disqualified for the election by a Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, the state capital on Thursday.

“APC will participate in the election in Bayelsa State,” Premium Times quoted Festus Okoye, spokesman of the electoral body as saying.

The election is scheduled to hold on Saturday.
