The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has suspended its Resident Electoral Commissioner REC in the state, Hudu Yunusa-Ari following his illegal declaration of the All Progressives Congress APC Governorship Candidate, Aisha Dahiru Binani as Governor-elect in last weekend’s rerun election.
A statement signed by the Commission’s Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony has therefore directed its Administrative Secretary in the state to take charge of its affairs.
Yunusa-Ari has also been warned to stay away from the office of the commission in Yola, Adamawa state.
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”.
