The Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Ari, has been ordered to stay away from the state office.
The directive was contained in a memo, INEC/SEC/442/V.II, signed by the Secretary of the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) , Rose Oriaran-Anthony, sent to Ari on Monday.
It read read in part: “I hereby convey the Commission’s decision that you (Barr. Hudu Yunusa Ari), Resident Electoral Commissioner, Adamawa State should stay away from the commission’s office in Adamawa State immediately until further notice.
“The Administrative Secretary has been directed to take full charge of INEC, Adamawa State with immediate effect”.
Ari served as the REC for the governorship election in Adamawa State.
However, controversy occurred on Sunday morning when he declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Aisha Dahiru, popularly known as ‘Binani’ as the winner of Saturday polls in the state even before conclusion of the process.
