The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before a Federal High Court sitting in Kaduna.

The party is challenging the list of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates for Governorship and State Assembly seats published by INEC on July 22, for the General Election.

The NNPP alleged that the candidates did not emerge through a legal process or due process as prescribed by the Electoral Act and other extant laws. The party, is therefore, asking the court to remove the candidates of the APC from the list of eligible candidates for the 2023 General Elections in Kaduna State.

The case has been adjourned to Sept. 15 for hearing.
