The announcement of Senator Aisha Dahiru, also known as Binani, as the winner of the governorship race in Adamawa State has been revoked by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

INEC made the declaration via its Twitter handle on Sunday, “The attention of the Commission has been drawn to a purported declaration of winner in the Adamawa Governorship election by the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) even when the process has clearly not been concluded.

“The action of the REC is a usurpation of the power of the Returning Officer. It is null, void and of no effect. Consequently, the collation of results of the supplementary election is hereby suspended.”
