BREAKING: INEC asks IG to arrest, prosecute Adamawa REC

by OkeomaNews

The Independent National Electoral Commission has asked the Inspector General of Police, Buba Alkali, to arrest and possibly prosecute the commission’s Resident Electoral Commissioner for Adamawa state, Hudu Yunusa Ari, for usurping the role of the State Retuning officer for the Adamawa state governorship election.

A statement issued by the commission after its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday said that the collation of the results of the Adamawa state governorship election will resume on a date to be determined by the electoral umpire.

The statement read “at its meeting today, 18th April 2023, the Commission discussed matters arising from the Adamawa Governorship election and decided to:

“Write to the Inspector-General of Police for the immediate investigation and possible prosecution of the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Adamawa State, Barr. Hudu Yunusa Ari.

“Request the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to draw the attention of the  appointing authority to the unwholesome behaviour of the REC for further action.

“The collation process shall resume at a time to be determined by the Returning Officer.”

Is quite unfortunate. But for me, Mahmood Yakubu is the cause. Mahmood said BIVAS is not part of election result collection.

Mahmood should also be arrested for violating the 2022 electoral Act and INEC Electoral guide set up by him and his team.
