Supreme Court affirms Fintiri’s election as Adamawa Governor

FINTIRI

The election of Ahmadu Fintiri as Governor of Adamawa State has been affirmed by the Supreme Court.

An appeal filed by the Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Aisha Dahiru, was dismissed on Wednesday, January 31, for lacking in merit. A five-member panel led by Justice John Okoro held that the act of the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Hudu Ari, was an act of irresponsibility and criminality.

The panel further held that it is the returning officer who must announce results, as this is to avoid chaos and anarchy. It added that the Electoral Act gives the responsibility of who to declare results, and this power exclusively rests on the returning officer.
