Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Hudu Yunusa Ari, the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner for Adamawa State, has spoken out about the controversial declaration of Aishatu Dahiru, also known as Binani, as the winner of the governorship election.

Ari was suspended by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for his illegal declaration of Binani as the winner, which went against the Electoral Act.

INEC later declared Ahmadu Fintiri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the authentic winner of the election after following due process.

In a recent letter to the Inspector General of Police, Ari claimed that he acted within the law and that the results he signed and uploaded on the Result Viewing (IReV) portal differed from the results to be announced by the INEC Collation Officer.

He also alleged that attempts were made to replace him with his secretary and accused two national commissioners of meeting with Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri at the Government House, Yola, during the supplementary election.

“It was based on this that I compiled all the polling unit results and declared the election winner based on the highest number of valid votes scored by the candidate of the APC,” Ari stated.

“I had the breakdown of the valid votes scored by the two leading candidates in the supplementary election, using the results from the polling units as collated into all relevant forms EC8B, C, D and E respectively by properly and legally appointed and recognised collation officers and my humble self as the Adamawa State Chief Collation Officer and Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC).”

INEC has denied these claims and has asked the Inspector-General of Police and necessary security agencies to investigate and prosecute Ari for his role in the illegal declaration of Binani as the winner of the governorship election.
