The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday announced that it had fixed October 11 for the Adamawa governorship election.
Mr Kasim Gaidam, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), confirmed the date to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola.
“The commission has confirmed the Adamawa governorship election to hold on October 11, 2014,” Gaidam said.
He further said that the full election details would soon be released.
The election follows the impeachment of former Gov. Murtala Nyako by the state House of Assembly in July, with the Electoral Act mandating INEC to conduct a by-election into the office of a governor within three months of his impeachment. (NAN)
