Adamawa Governor-elect, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri has expressed his readiness to step on toes to address the pressing and challenging issues in the state.
Naija News understnds that the Adamawa state Governor-elect vowed that he wouldn’t mind offending some section of people in the state just to bring the injustices against the people of the state to an end.
Fintiri made this known on Saturday in Yola, the Adamawa state capital while receiving reports by a 67-man State Transition Committee that he claimed has revealed lots of breeches and mismanagement of government funds under the administration of the outgoing governor, Jibrilla Bindow, that needed to be looked into.
“We shall rise and boldly face the challenges, fully conscious that we were voted to fix them. We will not turn a blind eye to breaches of the law, mismanagement of funds, or abuse of privilege.
“Adamawa State, our only home has been battered and bruised but I am optimistic that it will heal.
“Let me restate the call on our people to join hands in the task of correcting the ills of the past. In doing so, we shall not hesitate to step on toes where public interest has been compromised.
“As a corrective government popularly elected by the people, we will not hesitate to step on toes in the interest and advancement of the public good,” Fintiri said.
Fintiri alleged that the outgoing administration received about N332 billion federal allocation with nothing much to show. He said that his administration would look into the report in detail with the aim of implementing its salient recommendations.
