Tracereporters –There’s confusion at the Adamawa state Governorship election results collation center. This follows refusal by the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Hudu Yunusa, to collate governorship results from Fufore local government area.
As of now, results from 20 local government areas have been collated, giving the incumbent governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri a slight lead.
The last result that is pending is from Fufore local government which generated hot controversy during the day.
The election was keenly contested between the incumbent governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri (PDP) and Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani (APC).
The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Yunusa, had in a leaked audio directed the Electoral Officer in Fufore local government area to rig the election in favour of Binani.
Our correspondent had earlier today reported that the Resident Electoral Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for Adamawa state, Hudu Yunusa, directed an election official, Hammajam Mohammed, to rig the governorship election in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani, according to a leaked audio.
In the leaked audio obtained by SaharaReporters, Yunusa told Mohammed to do everything humanly possible to make Binani win. He told the electoral official that he was instructed by a higher authority to make Binani win.
The audio conversation goes thus: REC; is that our official from Gombi?
Mohammed: No sir, I’m from Fufore, sir.
REC: I’ve heard what happened, however, do whatever you can to help this woman (Binani), that’s why I gave you an extra results sheet. Please, do just anything to make her scale through.
When contacted, Yunusa denied the allegation but attempted to negotiate with SaharaReporters’ correspondent to kill the report.
