VOTINGCandidates In Tight Race

PRELIMINARY results in yesterday’s governorship election in Adamawa State showed candidates of the three major political parties in a neck-to-neck showing.

While the candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Markus Guniri, was taking an early lead in few local governments areas that were initially released, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former Governor, Murtala Nyako, was contending seriously behind him.

Also, General Burba Marwa (rtd) of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), was making a not-too-distant third.

The results of the majority of the polling units in Nunman Local Council shows that Markus was leading in all the units except two. The party also led in all the polling units in Lamurde, except Lafia ward, which was won by the PDP.

The election recorded high turn out of voters, although the exercise commenced late because of late arrival of logistics.

When The Guardian contacted the INEC Commissioner in the state, Mr. Kassim Gaigam, he said the Commission was putting all preparations on ground to make sure the exercise was successful.

In Ajiya, Yola North, where former Vice President, Abubakar Atiku voted, accreditation had not commenced as at 9am when The Guardian visited. INEC officials were not on ground to attend to voters who were already waiting.

The exercise was peaceful and there was no record of ballot box snatching.
