Gov Election 2023: INEC postpones result collation in Adamawa


The Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed the collation of the Adamawa governorship election results from Local Government Areas until noon.

The state Collation Officer, Prof. Mohammed Mele, and the Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr Yakubu Ari, disclosed this on Monday after the collation of results from 20 out of the 21 LGAs.

He said that the exercise was postponed to enable verification of the results from the Fufore Local Government Area which were snatched.

Shortly before the shift, agents of the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress urged INEC to ensure justice in the collation of the results before the declaration.

NAN reports that security agencies were also deployed to major roads in the state capital to ensure security following a protest by some political thugs in the metropolis after the adjournment.
