Okay Nigeria had reported earlier this morning that INEC declared Ahmadu Umaru, winner of the governorship election having secured 376,552 votes to defeat incumbent Governor Jibrilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who polled 336,386 votes.
However, Bindow congratulated the governor-elect and wished him a successful term of office in a state broadcast on Friday.
“In view of the outcome and declaration of the results by INEC, I wish to congratulate the Governor-Elect Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri over his election as the incoming Governor of Adamawa State and wish him successful tenure.”
“As a democrat, I cherish democratic norms and values, as it is practised in the civilised world,” he said.
