Adamawa: INEC Shifts Emergency Meeting To Tuesday

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has shifted its emergency management meeting earlier fixed for Monday to tomorrow.

National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, told Daily Trust on Monday that the meeting would now hold on Tuesday.

According to him, this is to enable some of the national commissioners and other officials who are either on field assignments or have distances to cover to arrive today for the Tuesday’s meeting.

The commission fixed the meeting over the controversial declaration of winner of the Adamawa State supplementary by the now suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Prof. Yunusa Hudu Ari.

The commission, however, overruled him and summoned him and others to Abuja.

Okoye also on Sunday, announced the suspension of the collation of the election results with immediate effect.

A national commissioner had told Daily Trust in confidence, “We are going to hold an emergency meeting tomorrow (Monday) during which a decision will be taken on the governorship election.”
