HIS APPOINTMENT AS THE ACTING GOVERNOR, ADAMAWA STATE……
Rt. Hon Ahmadu Fintiri set the ball rolling immediately he was sworn in as the acting Governor, he swung into action by attending to all pending issues especially that which requires financial attention. He collaborated with relevant stakeholders who advice’s him on certain matters, that has helped him a lot.
His Excellency in restoring hope for Adamawa State that was EBBED by some few SYCONPHANTS for their personal aggrandizement, plays a vital role “You know one man cannot carry all ideas but many can….” For that very reason His Excellency appointed Commissioners and Advisers which He can work with, for progressive development humanly and structurally, for the betterment of Adamawa State.
On the other hand, the Local Government Chairmen were not left behind in His Administration. In the event that the erstwhile administrator is unconcerned with the welfare and officer convenience of the Local Government No.1citizens i.e. the chairmen where most of them used their personnel cars for official duty. The Acting Governor fortunately came as a focused and determined administrator and challenge was overcome hence, all the 21 LGA’s were given Prado Jeeps with the sum of 50million naira each to revive the hopes of the grassroots at the local level, that was hitherto stolen by the former Nyako Administration.
I hail the “ACTIVE” former Acting Governor for thinking wise in bringing needed change in our dear STATE Adamawa during which He brought about a rapid development, fresh air. I realize that the victory and challenges His EXCELLENCY went through is a call to greater service and renewed and sustained commitment, the people of Adamawa and Nigeria at large. A clarion call is made on our politicians Traditional rulers, Youths, movers and shakers to put hands on the deck of unity, understanding and prayers for such a LEADER because He is our best BET! For that, I salute HIS EXCELLENCY for his courage, steadfastness and fierce determination. In bringing about succeed in PDP and Adamawa State.
