All Nigeria Latest News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has taken action by suspending its Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barr. Hudu Yunusa-Ari, in Adamawa state.
This decision stems from his unauthorized declaration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Candidate, Aisha Dahiru Binani, as the Governor-elect in the recent rerun election held over the weekend.
In response, the REC has been directed to refrain from entering the commission’s office 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.
Part of the letter reads; “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”.
