Aishatu Binani, the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Adamawa, says March 18 election was marred by violence and rigging, commending the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for declaring the election inconclusive.

“My position is that the INEC REC did very well by declaring the result inconclusive and my reasons are simple,” Mrs Binani said.

“Whoever saw or monitored the election of Adamawa State knows that the election was marred with violence, rigging, over-voting and all manner of irregularities. The figures that were deposed were really, as far as I’m concerned, concocted figures.”

Mrs Binani, a serving senator for Adamawa Central, disclosed this in an interview with Channels TV on Friday.

Professor Muhammadu Mele of the University of Maiduguri, the state collation officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared Adamawa governorship election inconclusive due to the margin of votes between the two major candidates.

Incumbent governor Ahmadu Fintiri was leading Mrs Binani, with a margin of over 30,000 votes. Mr Fintiri 421,524 polled votes while Mrs Binani polled 390,275 votes.

According to INEC, a rerun election will be fixed in areas where the election did not hold in the state to determine the winner of the election.
