Atiku says only accountable leaders can succeed, lauds Fintiri



Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that only leaders that can give an account of their leadership transparently to can succeed and leave good legacies.

Atiku, who commissioned the first flyover in the North East region constructed by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State, yesterday, asserted that “leadership is all about enduring legacies that add value to humanity.”


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2019 presidential election, who described the bridge as an enduring traffic management system, pointed out that the structure did not only add beauty to Yola, the state capital but that it defined Fintiri as a pace-setter for other leaders.

“There is nothing that gladdens my heart more than seeing young Nigerian leaders demonstrating accountable leadership that is yielding fruitful results. Despite the dwindling resources and against competing demands and scarce resources, you embarked on this gigantic project and completed it within a short period in office. I’m proud of you,” the Wazirin Adamawa stated.

According to him, great cities around the world are known for magnificent and iconic structures, noting that such structures define great leaders.


“These great structures have one thing in common; they were built by visionary leaders who want to show the way for others to follow. Your government is setting the pace and clearing ground for others to follow. You are a pathfinder that needs to be encouraged by citizens within and outside the state,” he maintained.

Fintiri, who named the bridge after the late Lamido Musdafa, said his administration’s desire was to provide services that could bring prosperity to the people.

Fintiri reassured the people of Adamawa that his 11-point agenda would be fully implemented before the expiration of his mandate in 2023.

He explained that the N100 billion bond the House of Assembly approved recently was for agribusiness, to bring innovations into the state’s agriculture sector.

New opportunities for jobs and modern agricultural technologies will be introduced and the revenue of the state will also improve, he said, urging the residents to team up with him to take Adamawa to the speed lane of development.
