The governorship election in Adamawa State has been declared inconclusive.

Professor Andrew Haruna stated so while declaring the results in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, on Monday morning.

He cited the principle of the margin of lead, saying the slim margin of 32,476 votes necessitated the inconclusive declaration. According to him, ballots cancelled for various infractions amounted to 40,988, which is higher than the margin of lead.

He, therefore, called on the electorate to exercise patience, while the commission fixes a new date to conclude the exercise in the affected 44 polling units in 28 registration areas.

However, the results as announced, indicate that Ahmed Umar Fintiri, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is leading in the governorship race in Adamawa State.

Fintiri polled 367,471 votes, while the incumbent governor, Jibrilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scored 334,995 votes. Results as announced show that Fintiri is leading with a margin 32,476.

Prof. Andrew Haruna, who is the Adamawa Returning Officer, delivered the figures at 3:35am Monday.

Full results as pronounced below:

Total Registered Voters: 1,973,083
Total Accredited Voters: 894,481
