    The governorship election, which was earlier declared inconclusive on March 18, was concluded with a supplementary poll last Saturday.

    INEC declared the final result days after the Resident Electoral Commission (REC) Hudu Ari ‘illegally” declared APC candidate Binani the winner of the election even while collation was ongoing.

    The result declared by the REC was swiftly nullified by INEC.

    Earlier on April 18, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday had refused to hear an ex-parte motion filed by the APC and Binani to stop INEC from further collation and announcement of the governorship election result.
