INEC declares Adamawa Gov election inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Adamawa State governorship election inconclusive.

The collation officer said on Monday that a winner could not be declared because the number of collected PVCs at over 37,000 was more than the margin of lead for Governor Ahmadu Fintiri over his challenger, Aishatu Ahmed.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Senator Aishatu Dahiru, famously known as Binani, scored 390,275 votes while the incumbent, Governor Fintiri, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, polled 421,524.

However, INEC declared the election inconclusive due to the margin of votes.
