The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has commenced the collation of supplementary governorship election results held on Saturday.

Speaking at the commencement of the exercise in Yola, Prof. Mohammed Mele, the state Collation Officer, said the results of Demsa and Yola-South Local Government Areas were ready.
