APC’s Aisha Binani asks court to stop further action on Adamawa election
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Adamawa State, Senator Aisha Dahiru Ahmed aka Binani, has approached the Federal High Court, Abuja, to stop further action on the ongoing governorship election in the state.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Mr. Hudu Yunusa, had on Sunday declared the APC candidate as the winner of Saturday’s supplementary election in the state.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), however, declared the announcement null and void to calm strayed nerves within and outside the state.
In the ex-parte application marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/510/2023 and filed by her team of lawyers led by Hussain Zajariyau (SAN), the APC candidate urged the court to set aside the administrative decision INEC made on the election on Sunday.
She also prayed the court to restrain INEC from taking further action that would lead to the announcement of the winner of the election pending the determination of the application for judicial review.
INEC, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri were listed as respondents in the suit.
