Nigerians have trolled the Independent National Electoral Commission after it nullified the declaration of Senator Aisha Dahiru, popularly known as Binani, as the winner of the governorship election in Adamawa State.
Binani was declared winner of the Adamawa governorship poll on Sunday with no result announced by the Resident Electoral Commissioner for the state, Barrister Hudu Yunusa.
In reaction, the electoral body summoned Yunusa over the controversial declaration.
Its spokesperson, Festus Okoye made this known on Twitter while announcing the declaration as void.
Nigerians have since reacted to the nullification of the declaration, expressing dismay at the conduct of the electoral body over the election.
“@ChudMo: I dey tell you; the inec matter shock devil. It has never been this bad naa.
@Obongowoibesik1: INEC in all honesty should be scrapped and built again. The current INEC is absolute garbage.
@Lawmac5: The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, trampled on laid down rules and procedures when he declared a winner while election results were still being collated. The REC for Adamawa state is merely following the footsteps of the boss. These are pointing to the end of democracy in Nigeria.
@GasmalielAminu: Inec don run April fool for Aunty Binani
@Wabbillionaire: It’s obvious that this is not a well-structured body. INEC under the leadership of Prof Mahmoud Yakubu has once again failed to live up to expectations.

Never been this bad
I no reach to add anything again
This what some people call democracy
They should all calm down. Typical of Nigerians, when something goes wrong instead of conducting a detailed investigation, they are calling for scraping of INEC, some are even blaming democracy. No system is perfect, what needs to be done is find out what went wrong and fix it asa
What do you expect when the old druggie is allowed to be walking around with a stolen certificate? grin
Elections have always been problematic in Nigeria because we do not take time to prepare. After the elections everyone goes to sleep, till the next cycle then when things go haywire we start acting surprised.
