The REC on Sunday morning without a figure declared Binani the winner of the supplementary elections.

In a statement on Sunday morning by INEC National Commissioner, Information & Voter Education, Barr. Festus Okoye declared the action of the REC as null, void and of no effect.

“The action of the REC is a usurpation of the power of the Returning Officer. It is null, void and of no effect.
Consequently, the collation of results of the supplementary election is hereby suspended.

“The REC, Returning Officer and all involved are hereby invited to the Commission’s Headquarters in Abuja immediately.”
