The Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Alhaji Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has visited the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and declared that he has returned the mandate from recently removed governor of the state, Admiral Murtala Nyako (rtd).
He also pledged his unalloyed loyalty to the national leadership of the party.
Fintiri, who spoke with journalists after a closed-door meeting with the deputy national chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, at Legacy House, Abuja, further declared that his swearing-in as acting governor marked the restoration of PDP to the people of Adamawa State.
He said, “As a loyal and obedient party member, I came on a courtesy call to my party and the National Working Committee, NWC, as my first assignment after the battle to remove Governor Nyako who had stolen the mandate of the PDP under which he was elected for eight years”.
He continued, “I came here to bring back the mandate and I have handed over to them the mandate. I promise that I will work together with the party, its leadership, the people of Adamawa to ensure that our party is restored to the people”.
The PDP national leadership promised to give the acting governor all the support he needs, noting that Nyako’s impeachment would cleanse the rot the people of the state had experienced.
The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, expressed confidence that Fintiri would restore dignity to the party and tackle “the rot and the damage caused the party by former governor Nyako”.
