Adamawa To Conduct LG Polls In July


From Stanley Mijah,Yola

Few months after the dissolution of the leadership of the 21 local governments in Adamawa State, following the expiration of their tenure, Governor Ahmadu Fintri has approved the conduct of election in July.

As part of its resolve to ensure the conduct of the election, the state government has inaugurated the State Electoral Commission, SIEC, to adequately prepare for the polls.

Making this known in a statewide broadcast in Yola to mark the first anniversary of his second term in office, the governor said his administration would continue to devote sufficient energy, intellect and resources for security and peace-building, as well as infrastructural development to place the state on the pedals of development and enviable position.

He said if his election for the first term was a trust, his second election represents a vote of confidence and an impetus to do more, adding that he remains eternally grateful to Adamawa people for the confidence and the opportunity to serve them.

He saluted the support and understanding of the youths whom he had engaged at different levels and stressed his administration’s commitment to harness the abundant talent and creativity of Adamawa youths so as to entrust them with the future of the state.

He attributed the success of his administration in the areas of education and infrastructural development such as roads, bridges, fly-overs, schools, hospitals, housing projects and many others to the unwavering support and understanding of the population.

According to him, Yola is gradually assuming the status of one of the most modern state capitals in the country and tourists destination, as well as a growing choice for hosting conferences and meetings.

He added that his government will do more through the new superhighway linking the upcoming fly-over at A.A Lawan junction and ½ cloverleaf fly-over along Yola-Numan road, 1,000 units Fintiri Housing Estate, new shopping mall, stadium and other projects in the offing.

He said his government has developed a friendly business environment to attract investors to the numerous sectors such as agriculture, mineral resources, tourism and others.

The governor noted that his government will continue to empower the people people, especially women and youths, emphasising that he has directed that in every quarter, 10,000 beneficiaries will be selected and given N50,000 each under the Fintiri Business Wallet Scheme.
