Binani loses bid to become Nigeria’s first female governor

Aishat Binani has lost her ambition of becoming the first female governor of Nigeria, elected in the Adamawa governorship election, as feelers suggest PDP’s candidate Fintiri, might have won the election to clinch a second term in office, Apples Bite Magazine reports.

It was reported yesterday that Binani had won the election, however the news was found to be fake and orchestrated by the APC.

Her unconfirmed victory has already been congratulated by many party leaders.

Sadly, Apples Bite’s tally of the announced results indicates that Mr Fintiri received 421,522 votes, while his closest opponent, Aisha Dahiru of the APC, received 390,275 votes.

As of Monday morning, Mr Fintiri was leading Mrs Dahiru, popularly called Binani, after the results of 20 local governments had been announced. But the APC candidate was hopeful of security a large victory in the remaining local government, Fufore.

Fufore’s results were announced Monday evening.

Although Binani won in Fufore, it was not enough to close the margin of victory of Mr Fintiri.

In total, Mr Fintiri won in 13 local governments while Binani won in eight.

In the Adamawa government house race, both candidates were closely competitive.

INEC is expected to declare Mr Fintiri the winner of the election in the next few minutes.
