Alleged Fraud: INEC redeploys head of ICT in Adamawa

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has redeployed the head of its ICT in the Adamawa office for alleged fraud during the March 28th governorship election.

In a three-paragraph letter to the officer, name withheld, the commission directed the said officer to report to the headquarters in Abuja on or before the 10th of April 2023.

It could be recalled that the March 18th governorship election in Adamawa state has received widespread criticism following allegations of irregularities by INEC officials which led to the declaration of the election as inconclusive.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC Barrister Hudu Yunusa has cried out over the threat to his life, and his whereabouts unknown since the declaration of the election as inconclusive, late last month.

The sitting Governor of the state and PDP candidate Ahmadu Fintiri led comfortably in 15 of the 21 local government areas when his APC counterpart, Senator Aishatu Dahiru Binani had 5 local governments with only Fufore local government outstanding before the declaration of the election as inconclusive.
