Zakari who was in the state to access the ongoing display of voters claims and objectives list said the APC in Zamfara state did not submit names of candidates as at the INEC deadline for submission of list.
The INEC national commissioner added that the APC in Zamfara did not submit any list to INEC because of the ongoing legal tussle.
