Confusion As INEC REC Declares Binani Winner Of Adamawa Guber Election

The Adamawa Governorship election has been won by Senator Aisha Dahiru Binani.

On Sunday morning, Prof. Hudu Yunusa Ari, the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner for Adamawa, declared Binani the winner.

According to news sources, Binani’s victory makes her Nigeria’s first elected female governor.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner of Adamawa, Prof. Hudu Yunusa Ari, announced the results of the election on Saturday while the results were still being tallied, which has raised controversy over the situation.

INEC Contracts To APC Candidates Exposes Their Partisanship, Incompetence – Atiku


At precisely 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, INEC started collating the results of the governorship election, and the local government returning officers sent the results from Demsa and Yola South Local Government Areas to the collation center.

This news outlet previously claimed that after the results from 10 councils were combined, the incumbent governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, was in the lead with votes.

Fintiri is running on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.

When results from eight council areas, in addition to Demsa and Yola South, first came out, Fintiri increased his lead of 31,249 votes with victories in Demsa, Lamurde, Jada, Ganye, Song, Maiha, Hong, and Shelleng. APC candidate Binani, on the other hand, only won in Yola North and Yola South out of ten council areas.

Professor Yunusa Ari’s announcement of Binani as the poll’s winner before the planned time for collation, however, was followed by controversies.

The PDP had questioned the impartiality of the REC before to the contentious pronouncement of the election’s victor after an audio recording of him pleading with an electoral official in Fufore to assist “This woman” was made public and leaked.


Newsmen believes that when the collation of the Saturday election results commenced, Adamu Gujugu, the state commission’s Administrative Secretary, rather than the REC presided over the proceedings, provided the guidelines for the process.

However, the REC came back later, before the final collation of the collation at 11 am, and announced Binani as the winner.
