Fintiri Addresses Influencing the Posting of INEC National Officers to Adamawa

The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, has denied influencing the appointment of two Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) National Commissioners to the state.

According to reports, the governor said this on Tuesday in response to claims made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Aishatu Dahiru Binani.

Binanji said Fintiri influenced the appointments of the state’s returning officer, Professor Muhammadu Melee, and two other INEC commissioners.

She further said that INEC national officers paid a visit to the governor at Adamawa State Government House.

However, the governor’s spokesman, Humuwashi Wonosikou, claims that the allegation that he influenced the postings of the returning officer and two other INEC commissioners to the state is false and without foundation.

Fintiri stated that everyone was aware of the circumstances surrounding the draft of the two national commissioners who were dispatched into the state to complete the election process.

“Senator Aishatu Binani has just awoken to the realization of her battered public image as a desperate politician bent on grabbing power at any cost,” he stated, “and has decided to put out a half-truth to redeem herself.”

”Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has no say over who is appointed by the electoral empire. Perhaps Binani should explain to the world how she came to this conclusion, because everyone knows how the INEC national commissioners were appointed during the meeting of the board of INEC national commissioners in Abuja. They were delivered from INEC headquarters, so why would you accuse Fintiri, excerpt that she has to rehabilitate her already tarnished image by spreading such lies?”

The governor also praised the INEC leadership’s intervention, which annulled the REC’s proclamation of election results.
