Court Fixes Nov 6 For Arraignment of Ex-Adamawa REC Hudu |



A date has been fixed for the arraignment of suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Hudu Ari-Yunusa.


The Adamawa State High Court fixed November 6 for Ari-Yunusa’s arraignment.


Hudu, the REC in Adamawa up to the April 16, 2023 governorship election result collation in the state, is to be arraigned on charges that include announcement of false electoral result, violating the oath of neutrality, breach of duty, disorderly conduct at election, inciting disturbance, and impersonating a public servant.


Recall that Hudu had on April 16 announced the result of the election, declaring Senator Aishatu Binani of All Progressives Congress as winner while results were yet to be fully collated.


He was immediately suspended by INEC which went ahead to complete collation and to announce incumbent governor and candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Ahmadu Fintiri, as the winner.


Hudu was earlier scheduled for arraignment on July 27, 2023 but he did not turn up, prompting the court, presided over by Justice Benjamin Lawan, to adjourn the case for the third time.


On the last adjourned date on Monday, however, the court, unable to sit, communicated the new November 6 date to the parties involved.


The court specifically asked INEC to arrange to arraign its suspended REC to answer for the charges against him.
