The Adamawa State High Court of Justice has set the arraignment of the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner Barrister Hudu Ari Yunusa, for November 6, 2023.
The new arraignment date for the suspended REC was set by Justice Benjamin Lawan when the case came up for mention on October 23, 2023.
Yunusa was suspended from office in February 2023 by the Independent National Electoral Commission, for illegally announcing the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Aisha Dahiru Binani, as the winner of the 2023 governorship election in Adamawa State.
Other allegations against REC include breaching his oath of neutrality, disorderly conduct during elections, inciting disturbance, and personating a public servant.
However, the arraignment was initially set for July 27th, 2023, but was delayed due to Yunusa’s failure to appear in court.
Justice Lawan was forced to adjourn the case for the third time.
The October 23rd set for arraignment by the court could not however take place as planned, due to the court’s inability to sit.
