The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will present certificates of return to Adamawa State Governor-elect and deputy governor-elect on Wednesday by 3 pm at the commission’s Headquarters, Maitama, Abuja.
INEC had on Tuesday declared Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of the PDP as winner of the Adamawa State supplementary election on April 15, having polled 430,861 votes to defeat Aisha Binani of the APC who polled 398,788.
The commission disclosed this on Wednesday in a tweet on its verified Twitter handle.
The commission also said that the National Assembly members-elect in the just concluded supplementary election in the state would also be presented their certificates of return at 11 a.m.
“Following the conclusion of supplementary elections nationwide and the declaration of winners, the Commission will present certificates of return to the Adamawa State Governor and Deputy Governor-elect at 3.00 p.m. today (Wednesday).
“Similarly, members of the National Assembly-elect (Senators and House of Representatives) will receive their certificates from 11.00 a.m. today.”
The commission advised members of the State House of Assembly-elect to contact its Adamawa state office for their certificates of return.
