The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa has rejected the result of Saturday’s local government election announced by the state Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC).

The election was conducted on April 9, and the results were announced on April 10.

The outcome showed that all the 21 council chairmanship seats were won by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ibrahim Bilal, the APC chairman in Adamawa, said they were not satisfied with the results as the party also won some wards but was not announced by ADSIEC.

According to him, APC won in many wards and the results announced were contrary to what happened in the polling units.

Mr Bilal listed some of the wards won by APC as Toungo, Bako and Bamoi wards in Yola-South as well as Wambilimi-Til wards in Michika local government area.

He disclosed that the party would come up with a stand over the conduct of the election to ensure justice to its candidates and peace in the state.
