He described the action of Adamawa REC as a shame and expressed optimism that the right thing will be done.
On Monday, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, suspended its Resident Electoral Commissioner REC in Adamawa state, Hudu Yunusa-Ari from office following his illegal declaration of the All Progressives Congress APC Governorship Candidate, Aisha Dahiru Binani as Governor-elect in last weekend’s rerun election.
Consequently, the REC has been ordered to stay away from the office of the commission in Yola, Adamawa state.
INEC in a letter dated April 17, 2023 and signed by its Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony has therefore directed its Administrative Secretary in the state to take charge of its affairs.
