The Ishola Balogun-Fulani led All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state has warned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) against making the mistake of not publishing the names of candidates of the party duly recognised by the court of law.
This warning was contained in a fresh letter dated January 29, 2018 and addressed to INEC chairman, Prof. Yakub Mahmud, in which Balogun-Fulani reminded the electoral body of the subsisting judgment of the Ilorin High Court which recognised his leadership of the part in the state and therefore becomes the authentic body to conduct the party’s primaries for picking candidates for all elective positions.
INEC had in its last publication listed the names of candidates not from Balogun- Fulani executive committee as APC National Assembly candidates in the state, a development that forced the APC leader to write the electoral body through the Law Firm of Yusuf O.Ali and Co.
In the latest letter, Balogun Fulani said:”Your commission is advised and warned not to repeat the mistake of the past in deliberately, wittingly or unwittingly publishing any other unrecognized names as candidates of the APC in Kwara state other than the names of the candidates duly submitted by our executive committee of APC in line with the judgement order of the court.
