The compilation of the local government area (LGA) governorship election results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been postponed until noon.
This declaration was made on Monday by Mr. Yakubu Ari, the resident electoral commissioner for Adamawa, REC, and Prof. Mohammed Mele, the state collation officer, following the compilation of the results from 20 out of the 21 LGAs.
He claimed that the delay was necessary to allow for the verification of the stolen results from the Fufore local government area.
Shortly before the shift, two agents of the leading parties in the election, People Democratic Party PDP and All Progressives Congress, APC, urged INEC to ensure justice in the collation of the results before declaration.
NAN reports that security agencies were also deployed to major roads in the state capital to ensure security following a protest by some political thugs in the metropolis after the adjournment.
The road leading to INEC office had also been cordoned off from Gate II of the Jimeta modern market to fire service roundabout. (NAN)
