Suspended Adamawa REC, Yunusa-Ari dropped as APC witness


The suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Adamawa State, Hudu Yunusa-Ari, has been asked to step down as witness to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This was disclosed by the lead counsel to the APC at the Adamawa State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, Akin Olujimi a day after the tribunal stopped Yunusa-Ari from testifying as a witness due to the failure of the petitioner to notify it of its intention to present him as a witness.

Recall that Yunusa-Ari was to serve as the APC’s prime witness in its petition filed against Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

To this, the suspended REC was replaced with another witness, a forensic expert, to mark the end of its presentation.

Continued hearing of the case has been adjourned till August 2, 2023, for further proceedings.
