INEC finally declares Fintiri winner of Adamawa Governorship election



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has finally declared Governor Ahmadu Fintiri as the winner of the Adamawa State Governorship election in what some might describe as a drama-filled supplementary election in the State.

In last Saturday’s supplementary election, Fintiri, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 9,337 votes, to go ahead of Senator Aishatu ‘Binani’ Dahiru of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who scored 6,513 votes.

Announcing the final result, the Returning Officer for Adamawa State, Muhammed Melee, declared incumbent Fintiri of the PDP winner on Tuesday after polling 430,861 votes to defeat his major counterpart Aisha Binani of the APC who polled 398,788.
