Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC), has announced the results of Local Government Election held in the state on Saturday.

The Chairman of the commission, Alhaji Isa Shettima said on Monday in Yola that the All Progressives Congress (APC) won the chairmanship seats of 18 local governments where results were announced.

Shettima said that the commission had cancelled the elections in Michika, Lamurde and Numan Local Government Areas, and fixed Aug. 6, for fresh polls.

"There will also be elections in two wards in Guyuk Local government on the same date," the ADSIEC chairman said.

He said that results of councillors for the 226 wards in the state would be announced at the headquarters of the three senatorial zones.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that shortly after the announcement of the results, the winners were presented with Certificate of Return by the chairman.

Speaking to NAN after receiving her certificate, the only female candidate, who was elected Chairman of Demsa Local Government, Mrs Wale Fwa, said that she was prepared for the job and would not disappoint the people.

"I am used to that; I was once the only female member in the state House of Assembly, my people have confidence in my ability to deliver and I will do just that," Wale said.
