Bindow has battered Adamawa, rape treasury— Fintiri


Governor Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa State

The Adamawa State Governor-elect, Alhaji Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has said the outgoing Governor, Alhaji Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow, didn’t only destroy the foundation built by past leaders, but also raped Adamawa’s treasury.

Fintiri, who spoke yesterday in Yola at presentation of the transition committee’s report, said his government would not turn a blind eye, where there were breaches of constitutional provisions and massive mismanagement of the state resource was uncovered.

He said the outgoing government turned against voters by its refusal to develop the state and people, describing Bindow’s government as enemy of not only workers, but also students through its maladministration.

Fintiri, who assured the people he was prepared to redress his predecessor’s wrongdoings, said his government would operate strictly by Constitutional provisions, and that his actions would be devoid of party, religious or ethnic affiliation.

The governor-elect wondered why Bindow’s government was paying salaries on bank overdraft, after the state enjoyed Paris club and bailout worth over N20bn.

While presenting the report, the transition committee’s chairman, Alhaji Aliyu Samaila Numan, said his committee uncovered a debt profile of N115bn and that the entire system was rotten, as the state had been grounded.
