Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has ditched Eng. Bashir Ahmad and replaced him with Awwal D. Tukur as the secretary to Adamawa State government (SSG).

Eng. Bashir Ahmad who has been having a running battle with Jimeta critical PDP stakeholders served as Fintiri’s SSG in the last four years.F

Fintiri lost Yola North local government woefully in the last election despite the fact that the SSG was from the local government.

Some critical PDP stakeholders in the local government earlier warned governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri against appointing Eng Bashir Ahmad over sundry infractions including anti party activities.

The newly appointed SSG who is the son of Bamanga Tukur, a former governor of defunct Gongola state was Fintiri’s long standing political ally.

Hon Awwal was a former Member of the House of Representatives and served as the Director General of the Adamawa Presidential and Gubernatorial Campaign Council in the 2023 national elections.

In another vein, governor Fintiri also approved the the appointment of Dr Edgar Amos as Chief of Staff Government House.

Following the appointment of Dr Amos who before now was the Head of Service, Shehu Isa Ardo takes over as Head of the Civil Service. The appointments take immediate effect.
