THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has barred erring Resident Electoral Commissioner, Adamawa State, Mr Hudu Yunusa Ari, from its secretariat.
The electoral umpire thereby directed the Administrative Secretary to preside over the commission’s office in the interim.
This is contained in a statement signed by INEC’s Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony, on Monday, which was obtained by Stonix News.
“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.
“Please, accept the assurances of the Commission’s warm regards,” the statement read.
Recall that result of a yet-to-be concluded governorship election rerun held on Saturday was hurriedly announced declaring the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner.
