The Independent National Electoral Commission has suspended the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Yunusa Ari.

It asked the embattled REC to stay away from its Adamawa 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.

The letter reads partly, “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.”

Recall that the REC had declared Aishatu Dahiru, aka Binani, the candidate of All Progressives Congress, the winner of Adamawa State governorship election while results collation process was ongoing.

INEC, however, cancelled the declaration.
