INEC Gives Fresh Update On Adamawa Supplementary Governorship Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, assured in Abuja on Saturday that it would conduct a credible supplementary governorship election in Adamawa State that would be the pride of the international community and of Nigerians.

Report has it that Mr Festus Okoye, INEC’s Commissioner for Information and Voter Education, gave the assurance when some women staged a protest at the Commission’s headquarters in the nation’s capital in respect of the Adamawa election.

The protesters were led by Hajiya Lami Lau, the President of the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS).

Okoye showed appreciation to the women for conducting themselves in a peaceful manner, noting that INEC belonged to all Nigerians.

The people of Adamawa are the only ones with the right to elect their governor; those of us in the Commission and Nigerians from other states have no vote in Adamawa, Okoye told the protesters.

The Commission will go back to Adamawa State and conduct a supplementary election that Nigerians and the international community will be proud of.

Okoye, however, reiterated that the faith of Adamawa would only be determined by the people of the state.

It will be recalled that INEC had a few days ago declared the March 18 governorship election in Adamawa State as inconclusive.

The final results collated by INEC at the Adamawa Governorship election revealed that Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), got the highest number of votes.

INEC, however, announced that cancelled votes at the election were more than the margin of win between Fintiri and the runner-up, Senator Aishatu Binani of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
