Adamawa: INEC Lacks Power to Declare REC Wanted — Festus Okoye

The Commissioner for Information and Voter Education of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Festus Okoye, has said the commission lacks the power to declare wanted its Resident Electoral Commissioner in Adamawa, Hudu Ari.

The REC had got into trouble for usurping the powers of the Collation Officer for Adamawa State to announce the result of supplementary governorship poll and errorneously declaring the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Aishatu Dahiru, aka Binani, as the winner of the poll.

INEC had since written the Inspector General of Police to investigate and prosecute the REC, while President Muhammadu Buhari ordered that Ari be suspended, probed and possibly prosecuted.

INEC, however, said the whereabouts the REC was unknown as he had refused to take phone calls.
