2019 ELECTION UPDATE: IMEC REMOVES APC CROSS RIVER CANDIDATES

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has directed its Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Cross River to remove the names of all candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC) from the ballot for the general elections.





The REC, Dr Frankland Briyai
disclosed this to newsmen on Friday, February 23, in Calabar.

The court consequently ordered the commission to recognise only candidates from the John-led State Executive Council.

However, INEC directed that the names and logo of the party should be retained, pending when the National Working Committee of APC would submit the names of candidates from the Etim John executive.

The letter which was signed by Rose Anthony, secretary to the commission, also directed the REC to update its record in respect of the list of candidates earlier sent to him.
