Adamawa REC unilaterally declares APC candidate winner of governorship poll

By Billy Graham Abel, Yola

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Adamawa State, Hudu Ari, has unilaterally declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Aishatu Dahiru Binani, winner of the state governorship elections.

The REC was said to have sneaked into the collation centre two hours before the scheduled time for the resumption of collation to declare the APC candidate, Aishatu Dahiru Binani, as the winner.

The results of about 10 local governments were already announced since the commencement of the collation of the supplementary governorship elections results at about 9 am on April 15 and the collation was suspended to officially resume today 16th of April, 2023.

While the entire state awaits the resumption of collation, it was reported that the REC, Hudu Yunusa Ari, came to the collation centre at around 9 am to mysteriously declare the APC candidate winner.

Details of the results released so far show that the governor was leading by a wide margin.

At the declaration of the elections as inconclusive, the Adamawa State Governor was already leading by 31,249.
