The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, and the Deputy Governor-elect, Prof Kaletapwa Farauta, has finally received their certificates of return in Abuja, after all drama.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented the certificates to the newly re-elected governor and his new deputy around 5 pm on Wednesday at its national headquarters.
The announcement was however preceded by political intrigue.
It was noted that, Fintiri on Tuesday emerged as the winner of an arguably drama-filled supplementary election in Adamawa State.
In last Saturday’s rerun, Fintiri, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 9,337 votes benching Senator Aishatu ‘Binani’ Dahiru of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who scored 6,513 votes.
At the end of the entire exercise, Fintiri having polled 430,861 votes, defeated Binani who got 398,738 votes and merits the certificate.
Congratulations to Fintiri!
