“We are working on the order of the court in removing the name, but the APC leadership in the state is yet to present another name to replace that of Sharada,” he said.

According to him, the name of Sharada, a Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Broadcast Media was earlier submitted to the Commission by the party as its candidate.

Recall that APC had earlier presented the name of Sharada as the winner of the Primary election for the constituency but his opponent, Mukhtari Ishak-Yakasai challenged the election and sought redress in Court.
