INEC Declares Adamawa’s Gov’ship Election Inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Adamawa state governorship election as inconclusive.

The All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) whose candidates are the major contenders in the election have been trading blames.

The PDP has accused INEC and the APC of attempts to alter the results to favour the latter.

The PDP claimed that there was a plot to alter the election results.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Monday, National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu asked INEC to resist any attempt to “alter the electoral outcome”.

Ayu claimed that the results gathered by PDP agents from all the polling units in the state show that the party won the election.

“From the results obtained by our party and independent observers directly from the polling units, the PDP recorded a sweeping victory in most of the states where the elections were held,” he said.

Earlier, presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar alleged that INEC was creating tension in Adamawa by failing to conclude the collation of results of the election in the state.

So far, governor Ahmadu Fintiri, candidate of the PDP, has won 13 LGAs, leaving Aisha Binani, gubernatorial candidate of the APC with seven.

The results from Fufore LGA, the only one left, were yet to be collated. Thugs had reportedly snatched the results sheet of the LGA.

INEC officials said that they were working to remedy the situation by getting all the data that have been uploaded on the iRev.
