Scorecard: Gov. Fintiri rates his administration, Parleys NGOs, community leaders


The Adamawa state governor, Ahmad Fintiri has scored himself high and justifies why he is seeking reelection in the Saturday gubernatorial contest.
Speaking at the stakeholders conference organised by the Community Development Association in Yola on Monday, the governor stated that “in 2019 we run an issue-based campaign and rode on the back of demands of our State and the needs of our people . These needs and demands were what we christened as the 11-Point Agenda.
The event which was attended by over 25 non-governmental organizations, NGO gives the governor opportunity to details his 11-Point Agenda.
According to the governor, Security of Lives and Property, Education and Human Capital Development, Transparency and Accountability, Improved Internally Generated Revenue, Rural Infrastructure/Urban Renewal and Water Supply, Agricultural Development and Food Security, Healthcare and Human Service, Youth and Women Development, Commerce and Industry, Civil Service Reforms and Environment and Climate Change are the main trusts of the PDP led government in the state.
Gov Fintiri said “in spite of the global economic challenges which has been worsened by the effect of COVID-19 Pandemic, we have been able to discharge our responsibilities to the people with amazing satisfaction. On assumption of duty in 2019, we met a State with:heightened insecurity and uncertainty as a result of the remnants of the activities of the Boko haram insurgency in the Northern zone with some communities largely unhabitable; Farmer/Herder clashes which had threatened food security in the State and the nation at large; incessant kidnappings on the farms, at home, on transit, etc.; the supreme reign of the urban crime such as the monstrous activities of the Shila Boys cult which had crippled night-life especially in the metropolitan centers and; perennial clashes among ethnic groups over limited resources.

What did we do to reverse this ugly trend? Governor Fintiri noted that, “Upon assumption of duty, we invested heavily in the peace and security of our people. We launched an aggressive campaign for peaceful coexistence and made justice and fair play the watch word of our administration. We reclaimed the trust and good will in government, which our predecessors wasted. This reduced the heated tension among and between our ethnic nationalities and identity groupings”.

“We hosted a security summit and redesigned the Security architecture of the State to accommodate local intelligence and incorporated vigilantes and local hunters in the frontlines; we procured and donated 60 Toyota Hilux Trucks and 50 Motocycles to Operation Farauta; Acquired 10 Toyota Land cruiser Trucks for Operation Lafiya Dole; Procured 45 operational Trucks from local Manufacturer IVM to support Vigilantes and Local hunters in 21 LGAs of the State; paid monthly stipends to Vigilantes and Local hunters in the State; organized a Joint Taskforce raid on mini-Sambisa which is the den of the dreaded urban miscreants known as Shila boys in the State Capital.”

Governor Fintiri submitted that the rapid development witnessed in the state is indeed the story of a term well spent. It is an account of the people’s mandate. It is the fortress on which he stand to seek for the renewal of his mandate.
