The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has summoned the Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Hudu Yunusa, over the declaration of the election held Saturday, just as the commission suspended the collation of the supplementary governorship election in the state.

The commission, which disclosed this on Sunday via its Twitter handle, noted that the process had clearly not been concluded before the REC made the announcement.

“The attention of the Commission has been drawn to a purported declaration of winner in the Adamawa governorship election by the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), even when the process has clearly not been concluded.

“The action of the REC is a usurpation of the power of the returning officer.” It is null, void, and of no effect. Consequently, the collation of the results of the supplementary election is hereby suspended.

“The REC, the returning officer, and all parties involved are hereby invited to the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja immediately. Detailed statement to follow shortly.”
