The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has directed the Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Ari, to stay away from the state office.
In a letter dated April 17, 2023 and addressed to the Adamawa State REC, the commission’s secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony directed the administrative secretary to take full charge.
“I hereby convey the Commission’s decision that you (Barr. Hudu Yunusa Ari), Resident Electoral Commissioner, Adamawa State should stay away from the commission’s office in Adamawa State immediately until further notice.
The Administrative Secretary has been directed to take full charge of INEC, Adamawa State with immediate effect,” the letter reads in part.
Recall that the REC on Sunday morning, April 16, controversially declared Aishatu Dahiru Binani, the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), the winner of Adamawa state governorship election while results collation process was not completed.
