~Scores Fintiri high on projects delivery
Adamawa foremost politician and stalwart of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alh. Umaru Bello Jada, aka Calculate has hailed governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa State over excellent delivery of democratic dividends to every nook and cranny of the state.
In a session with our reporter, Jada who said no government could have surpassed the achievements recorded by Fintiri in the last three years in consideration of the lean resources at the disposal of the state vis a vis the huge developmental strides said Adamawa is lucky to have economic savvy and frugal man at the helm of its affairs.
Calculate noted that the call has become apposite in the wake of the reemergence of the All Progressives Congress (APC) into the 2023 Gubernatorial race.
He however advised governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to stop issuing projects for now and concentrate on empowering politicians of the PDP stock on whose shoulder selling the good policies and programs recorded by the government rest ahead of the 2023 general election.
“Fintiri has no doubt acquitted himself well in all facet of development be it health, education and provision of infrastructure. No one is in doubt about the epoch that Fintiri’s government has become in terms of projects delivery in the annals of Adamawa State.
“No governor, no matter how frugal, would have surpassed the excellent track record of solid achievements recorded by Fintiri in the last three years,” Calculate pointed out.
But the politician however urged the governor to shift attention particularly to his party men who will be saddled with the responsibility of going to every nook and cranny to sell the good policies of the government.
“It is time for the governor to stop awarding projects and concentrate on politicians especially members of PDP because some of them have adopted politics as their only trade. Moreso, they are the people that will go to every crevice of the state to sell the good policies of the government.
“The projects so far executed by Fintiri are for the people of Adamawa State and every Adamawa indigene even those that are belligerent to the government are enjoying them. This is the right time for the governor to refocus attention to PDP faithfuls so that they can also get privileges of being in the ruling party,” he said.
Calculate who urged Fintiri to take a queue from governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State who is Fintiri’s best friend added that recently Wike in his wisdom empowers over 200,000 politicians in the state.
“I’m not in anyway comparing Rivers State with Adamawa State in terms of financial bouyancy but let the governor also emulate his friend within the framework of the finances of the state.
“This gesture will no doubt go a long way in enhancing the victory of our party especially considering that the APC is now solidly in the Gubernatorial race. In view of the new development in APC, the governor needs to double his efforts by carrying along the politicians for a smooth ride come 2023,” Calculate noted.
