The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, postponed the election in Nasarawa/Binyeri State Constituency of the Adamawa State House of Assembly after the death of a candidate, Adamu Kwanate, for the constituency, thus, election did not hold in the constituency on Saturday as scheduled.
Kwanate was said to have died on Wednesday after he collapsed during a campaign for his reelection. He died later in a hospital in Yola.
Gaidam said the postponement was to allow the party and the constituency find a replacement.
“We received a letter from the party and the House of Assembly regarding the death of the candidate and we have replied, giving them one week to find a replacement. We will communicate their replacement to the headquarters to fix a new date for the election,” Gaidam said.
