Binani vs Fintiri: Fufure LG to decide Adamawa guber poll

AS the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) battle for victory in the state governorship polls, there are indications that Adamawa State may produce the first female governor in Nigeria.

Aishatu Dahiru, popularly known as ‘Binani’, the APC candidate, is contending fiercely with Ahmadu Fintiri, the PDP candidate and incumbent governor.

Fintiri is currently in the Iead.

With results from 20 of the state’s 21 local governments announced, Fintiri is leading with over 35,000 votes.

The incumbent has 401,113 votes, while Binani has 365,498 votes.

Binani’s performance is exciting to many, but she is yet to overcome the hurdle of the incumbent governor.



    As it stands, Binani’s chances of becoming the the state’s next governor are tied to her victory in Fufure, the only local government area whose results are yet to be formally declared.

    The tension in the area was heightened by disruption of collation by political thugs.

    INEC on Sunday, March 19, ordered the recompilation of election results in affected areas.

    The APC has accused Fintiri and the PDP of trying to subvert the electorate’s will by manipulating the election results.
