Jul 1, 2023 #Politics

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it will soon take an action on the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner of Adamawa State, Hudu Ari.

Recall that Ari stirred controversy during the supplementary governorship election results in Adamawa State, by illegally declaring Senator Aisha Dahiru Binnani as the winner of the election.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television, INEC Spokesperson, Festus Okoye said there’s been an interface between the Nigerian Police and the commission, and they’ve been informed of some of the processes and procedures. 

Okoye said; 

“In terms of the issue of the Adamawa REC, you are aware that (former) President Buhari suspended him before he left office and the police invited him to explain what happened.

“I am aware that the police have concluded an investigation. In the next few weeks Nigeria will be informed of what happened. Under the law, he should be prosecuted by INEC.

“There is an interface between the Nigerian Police and INEC. The commission was informed of some of the processes and procedures. Very soon the commission will take action on the REC.”
