The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has declared Senator Aishatu Dahiru Binani winner of the Adamawa governorship election.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner for the state, Barrister Hudu Yunusa just made the declaration following the supplementary election held Saturday.
He defeated the incumbent governor, Umaru Fintri of the People’s Democratic Party to become Nigeria’s first elected female governor.
However, the declaration of Binani as winner is already marred by controversy as it was done without recourse to actual election results, which suggest that Fintri is ahead.
Hudu, it was gathered, simply walked into the collation centre and declared Binani winner and governor-elect.
