Senator Shehu Sani still remains the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District.
The Appeals Committee set up by the National Working Committee of the party re-affirmed the decision yesterday.
The committee said the primary conducted by the electoral panel set up by the party was done in contempt of a court order, adding that the only aspirant cleared by the party to contest the election was Senator Shehu Sani.
Senator Sani was one of the four aspirants that petitioned the Appeals Panel, with Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh, Hon. Usman Ibrahim and Hon. Samsudeen Lawal Giwa being the other three.
Saleh, Ibrahim and Giwa questioned the decision to disqualify them and give automatic ticket to one of them and demanded fresh primaries
The fifth aspirant Mallam Uba Sani, a political adviser to the governor, who was declared winner of the primary by the committee did not file any petition before the panel.
