The government which made the position at a media parley organized by the Principal Special Assistant to the governor on media and communications, George Kushi, vowed to continue to champion legacy projects till it’s last breath in office.

While reeling the scorecard of the government, Kushi noted the government will redouble its efforts in the coming days to ensure fulfilling all its electoral promises to the good people of the state.

He noted that even in its second term of office in which the popular thinking is the government will slow down since the governor is not contesting again, the governor has actually been firing from all cylinders making Adamawa State especially the state capital to be a beehive of developmental projects.

“The government of Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has undoubtedly redoubled its efforts by coming up with grandiose plans that have astounded, doubting thomases and even followers that believe that all has been said and done.

“The on going construction of 20.8-kilometer dual-carriage superhighway, connecting Numan road to the Gibson Jalo road through the Malkohi Ring road when completed will change the general outlook of Jimeta-Yola metropolis by easing the over congested Numan to Jimeta road.

“Another contract of 17km Bajabure housing estate roads and link has been awarded as a way to open up the town and ensure transportation around the industrial layout walk, in the same vein, the 2.9km storm water drainage system from Saminaka passing through the Federal Government Girls College has changed the narrative of the perennial flooding that has been a cause of concern to property and lives for decades.

“The on-going construction of a third flyover at the Mubi roundabout serves as a reminder that Jimeta is being transformed at a pace never imagined before. It can be said that the pronouncement and the implementation of the project came at the same time just as the decision to give the Shopping Complex a new look.

“The Shopping Complex which was designed to meet up to the standards of four decades will finally give way to modern structures befitting a modern city as envisaged by a focussed government with the future in perspective

“The government has not only paid attention to infrastructure but has looked into the case of humanitarian angle especially as it affects the senior citizens that have served the state over many years.

“The plight of retirees and their pensions are being looked into and appropriate measures are being taken to address the anomalies that have compounded the issue over twelve years before this government was voted in. Gratuities, the main reason that has deterred retirement In the civil service due to the fear of what to fall back to immediately after returning is being addressed as huge sums have been directed to settle retirees in batches more than ever before. To this effect over three billion naira has been dedicated.

“On the ecological front, the felling of trees for firewood and the smuggling of food and building materials from the state are receiving due attention. Adamawa, a major rice producer has been denied its rightful position because bulk purchasers take the produce outside to be processed and receive credit of being the producers.

“In the face of dwindling earnings for average households, the Fintiri administration introduced the Fintiri Wallet that empowered ten thousand people mostly women and youths to establish small scale businesses to better their lives. With the present hardship, this program can progressively uplift many families and create more breadwinners,” Kushi said.

Similarly, the other officials of the government at the parley, including, representative of the chief of staff, Dr. Edgar Amos Sunday, Dr Adamu Babikkoi, the commissioner of information and strategy, Neido Kofulto, Special Adviser to the governor on communications and strategy, Dr. John Ngamsa and the chief press secretary to the governor Humwashi Wonosikou all spoke glowingly about the solid imprints taking place in Adamawa State noting that posterity will be kind to the governor for putting the state on a sound developmental trajectory.

They also commended George Kushi for the great idea of instituting the parley saying that such robust platform will bring the government and the governed on the same page.
