All National Commissioners of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday were in a closed-door meeting at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.

This is barely 24 hours after the electoral umpire ordered the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Adamawa State, Hudu Yunusa-Ari, to stay away from the commission’s state office.

The Commission has, however revealed the outcome of the meeting and decision on the recent developments concerning the Adamawa governorship election.

“3. The collation process shall resume at a time to be determined by the Returning Officer.”
