Adamawa APC Welcomes Fintiri’s Disqualification
The publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Phineas Padio, has commended the PDP for disqualifying the acting governor, saying it is a right step in the right direction.
Padio said the action is a deserved treatment for “a traitor”, as his actions over time have shown he felt no compunction to betray people that assisted him.
He said Nyako singlehandedly helped Fintiri to become a member of the House of Assembly when his people rejected him only for him to come back and impeach the governor in order to succeed him in power.
“Despite all what Nyako did for him, Fintiri turned against Governor Nyako by spearheading the impeachment of the then speaker, Sadiq Dasin, who was loyal to Nyako. The governor had wanted the speakership slot to be given to the Central zone in order to balance the power equation in the state. Nyako as governor was from the South, his deputy Ngillari was from the north, while Speaker Dasin was from the Central.
“After the removal of Mr Dasin, Fintiri took over the speakership despite being from the North, where the deputy governor hails from and later impeached the governor just to succeed him.”
But the deputy publicity secretary of the PDP, Hon. Lawal Habu, said he could not react as he was not officially informed about the development, adding that he would respond at the appropriate time.
The acting governor had had to contend with a petition written against him to the national leadership of the PDP by some youth in the PDP alleging that Fintiri was not eligible as he was a registered APC member at Kirshinga in K/Wuro Ngayandi ward in Madagali local government area.
However, the acting governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, has denied ever registering with the APC.
Fintiri, who spoke earlier through his press secretary, Solomon Kumanga, said the whole drama was orchestrated by mischievous elements to deal a blow on the political fortunes of Fintiri.
