The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Sunday adjourned the collation of results in Adamawa State till today amid tension following contention over the result of the Fufore Local Government Area.
The state collation officer, Professor Muhammad Lamin Mele, had announced results from 20 out of 21 local government areas before disagreement ensued among party agents over the authenticity of the result from Fufore.
The APC agent, Usman Mauludu, alleged that the result received from Fufore had been tampered with.
The Resident Electoral Officer, Yunus Hudu, then adjourned the exercise until 12 noon today despite protest from the PDP agents led by former Minister of State for Health, Aliyu Idi Hong, who insisted that the collation must continue.
