Here’s Why INEC Declared Adamawa Elections Inconclusive



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Adamawa State governorship election as inconclusive.

Fidel Info reports that INEC state collation officer, Prof Muhammadu Mele of the University of Maiduguri, said he made the decision due to the margin of votes.

“Elections were not held in 47 wards, affecting 69 polling units. So, this gives us a margin of 31,249 [between the leading candidates]. The total number of PVCs collected in places where elections were not held amounted to 37,016,” he said.

Mele said “based on these findings and analysis as stated in the electoral laws” where the margin between two candidates is lesser than the total number of collected PVCs in areas where elections were not held, the election is declared inconclusive.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), whose candidates are the major contenders in the election, have been trading blames.

Fintiri of PDP scored a total of 421,522 votes, while Binani of APC scored 390,275 votes from the 21 local governments.
