INEC Removes Name Of House Majority Leader From List of Rep Members-elect

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has unveiled the full list of members-elect for the 10th House of Representatives.

However, the Commission has removed the name of Ado Doguwa, Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, from the list of elected House of Representatives members.

INEC had earlier announced Doguwa, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the February 25 election in the Doguwa/Tudunwada constituency.

He polled 39,732 votes to defeat the candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Yushau Salisu Abdullahi, who polled 34,798 votes.

But Doguwa was subsequently arrested for his alleged involvement in the killing of several persons and burning of the Secretariat of New Nigeria People’s Party in the just concluded general election.

On Wednesday, he was remanded in prison custody by a chief magistrates’ court in Kano.

His name was missing on the list of elected members released by INEC.

INEC remarked on the election result of Doguwa was “declaration made under duress.”

DIPLOMATIC DIARY reports that the full list of the Reps members-elect include 162 from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), 102 from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) , 34 from the Labour Party (LP), 18 from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), 2 from the Social Democratic Party (SDP), 4 from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), 1 from the Young Progressives Party (YPP)  and 2 from the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC).
