Abuja, April 17, 2023 Yusuf Hudu Ari, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Adamawa State, has been suspended from office.

He was allegedly suspended for usurpation of powers by announcing unauthorized result of last Saturday’s Supplementary Election in the state.

His suspension letter tttled: ‘Commission’s Directive to stay away from INEC, Adamawa State’ was signed by Mrs. Rose Oriaran-Anthony, Secretary to the Commission (INEC).

The suspension letter, however, did not give any reasons for the administrative action.

“I hereby convey the commission’s decision that you (Barr. Hudu Yunusa Ari), Resident Electoral Commissioner, Adamawa State, should stay away from the commission’s office in Adamawa State immediately until further notice.

“The Administrative Secretary has been directed to take full charge of INEC, Adamawa State with immediate effect,” the letter read. ((GBN)
