ADAMAWA: Fintiri 'Not Afraid' After INEC Suspends Collation

Ahmadu Fintiri also disclosed that all the results have been uploaded on the INEC Result Viewing Portal, IReV.

The governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, is certain that the technology used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) won’t jeopardize the state’s governorship election.

Fintiri, who briefed journalists in Yola on Sunday, declared that he has no fears and expressed confidence in winning the hotly contested election.

According to the results of 10 councils that have been declared in the supplementary elections so far, the governor who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Adamawa State is in the lead.

He has been engaged in combat with Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed, the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) candidate.

During the briefing, Fintiri said all results of the 69 polling units of the state have been uploaded on the INEC Result Viewing Portal, IReV.


“It will not be compromised because of the technology of INEC. All 69 units are on IReV. Since yesterday, the results have been uploaded, so it is there for everybody to see, the world has seen it,” the governor said.

“I am not afraid of anything whether the result will be tampered with or whatever will happen to the result.

“Whenever they call for the collation, we still believe in the sanctity and integrity of the result that will be collated.”

Ahmed was proclaimed the victor in the middle of the collation earlier on Sunday, according to the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Adamawa.

Some PDP supporters were compelled to protest the scenario in the collation center hall by questioning why the REC instead of the returning officer made the statement.


The election body overturned the REC’s announcement as a result, and the results collation was put on hold. Both officers were also invited to the commission’s Abuja headquarters.

Speaking to reporters, the governor cleared President Muhammadu Buhari of responsibility for the situation that is now taking place in the North-Eastern State.
