UPDATE: We Can't Remove APC From Ballot Papers- INEC
By Olamide Fadoju
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Spokesperson, Festus Okoye says it is impossible for INEC to remove APC from the Ballot box paper for the November 16th Governorship elections in Bayelsa State.
Mr Okoye while addressing the media after an emergency meeting on the Bayelsa Guber Election said although it is too late to remove APC from the ballot, any votes cast for the party will not count.
”We Can't Remove APC on the Already Printed Ballot Papers but Any Vote cast for APC is a Wasted Vote, he said."
A Federal High Court Sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa earlier on Thursday, disqualified Chief David Lyon of the APC over improper conducts of the party's primaries.
