We begin the news at six with a Federal High Court in Zamfara State nullifying the primary election that produced Alhaji Dauda Lawal Dare as the state’s Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in the forthcoming general elections.

A former federal lawmaker, who also contested for the election, Alhaji Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, had approached the court seeking the nullification of the PDP primary election won by Dare, citing gross irregularities.

Delivering the judgment on Friday, Justice Aminu Baffa Aliyu said all the prayers of the plaintiff had been granted by the court.

However, Justice Aminu ordered that fresh primary election must be conducted to ensure justice and fairness to all parties.
