The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to resume the collation of Adamawa governorship election results and declare their candidate, Ahmadu Fintiri, as the winner.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, stated during a news conference in Abuja that the results uploaded on INEC’s Result Viewing Portal (IRev) already indicated Fintiri as the clear winner.
The PDP demanded that INEC immediately direct the Returning Officer to conclude collation, announce the results from the Polling Units, and declare Fintiri as the winner based on the majority of lawful votes cast.
Ologunagba described the action of INEC’s Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) as illegal, supporting the party’s earlier allegation of his complicity and calling for his immediate removal.
The PDP also urged the Inspector General of Police to arrest the REC, Mallam Yunusa Ari, and hold him accountable for his conduct in accordance with the law.
