The party said it was surprised that INEC Chairman could make such a statement.
The party in a statement by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Banji Okunomo, said the electoral body should have been neutral on the issue since the matter was before a court of competent jurisdiction for adjudication.
He described Zakari statement as prejudicial and calculated to affect the proceedings and outcome of case in court.
