2023 governorship polls: Adamawa Government sues suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner Ari

Suspended Adamawa REC, Barrister Hudu Ari

By Joseph Adahnu, Yola

The Adamawa State Government has taken legal action against the suspended Resident Electoral Commission (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Barrister Hudu Yunusa Ari for alleged electoral offences.

The state government is seeking his conviction on fresh charges related to his tenure at the electoral body in the state. 

The state has filed three charges against Hudu. They are disturbing public peace, engaging in conduct that could cause a breach of peace, and impersonating a public officer. 

Also the the former REC is facing six-count charges filed by the federal government, but the case has suffered multiple adjournments due to the prosecution’s failure to arraign.

The state’s counsel, Akamode Abayomi, informed the court that the defendant had not been served with court papers despite their efforts. 

Abayomi said the prosecution was requesting a new court date to make a more determined effort to serve the defendant with court papers, assuring the court that they would make every effort to arraign him.
