The Adamawa State High Court of Justice has officially scheduled the arraignment of the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Barrister Hudu Ari Yunusa, for November 6, 2023.
This comes in the wake of the controversial declaration of Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the governorship poll in Adamawa State before the collation process had concluded.
At the time, official results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) indicated that Dahiru, the APC candidate, was trailing Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), with a margin of 31,249 votes.
Yunusa now faces a series of charges, including announcing false electoral results, breaching his oath of neutrality, disorderly conduct during elections, inciting disturbance, and impersonating a public servant.
The arraignment, originally slated for July 27, was postponed multiple times due to the REC’s failure to appear in court.
This led the judge, Benjamin Manji Lawan, to adjourn the case for the third time.
