A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mike Ozekhome, has reacted to the declaration of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Aisha Dahiru Binani, as the winner of the governorship election in Adamawa State.
We reported that the state Resident Electoral Commission (REC), Hudu Yunusa-Ari, had on Sunday declared Binani as the winner of the governorship election.
Yunusa announced this while collation of the Saturday’s supplementary poll had not been concluded and usurping state returning officer, Professor Mohammed Mele.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), however, overruled Yunusa’s declaration and suspended the collation of results, and summoned the REC to Abuja.
In a chat with the Punch on Sunday, Ozekhome described the declaration of Senator Binani as an abomination that should not be allowed to stand.
