JUST IN: Fresh twist as APC’s Binani seeks judicial review of her declaration as winner
The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Adamawa governorship election, Senator Aisha Binani Dahiru and the Party have filed a motion exparte before the Federal High Court in Abuja seeking a judicial review of the administrative decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on April 16 in respect of her declaration as the winner of the polls held on March 18 and the supplementary poll of April 15.
Recall that controversy trailed Binani’s declaration as the winner of the governorship election by the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Yususa, on Sunday.
However, INEC waded in immediately, saying the declaration was null and void.
Yususa, the REC, was thereafter suspended on Monday.
Following the development, there are multiple reports that barrinG further unforeseen circumstances, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, will announce the results of the controversial and dramatic Adamawa State governorship election, on Thursday.
According to VANGUARD, the INEC will between Tuesday and Wednesday meet as a “Commission” on the matter, National Commissioner and Chairman of information and Voter Education Committee, Dr Festus Okoye, said.
