Adamawa APC hails court order restraining INEC from conducting supplementary poll

Yet another certificate forgery scandal as Adamawa governor sued

The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the order restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from conducting the March 23 supplementary election in the state,

The APC said the order by the Adamawa State High Court, sitting in Yola, has vindicated the party.

Alhaji Ahmed Lawal, State Organising Secretary of the party made this known on Thursday while reacting to the court order.

The party had earlier objected to the entire governorship election claiming that it was marred by many irregularities.

Recall that the governorship election held in Adamawa was declared inconclusive by INEC on the premise of the “margin of lead” guideline.

Ahmed Umar Fintiri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had won the March 9 election with a margin of 32,476 votes, having polled 367,471 votes against incumbent Governor Jibrilla Bindow of the APC’s 334,995 votes.

The Movement for the Restoration of Democratic for Development (MRDD) petitioned an Adamawa High Court, on the omission of its party logo on the ballot paper during the March 9, governorship election.

The court therefore issued an order restraining INEC from conducting a rerun election in the state.
