Fintiri pledges purposeful leadership in Adamawa
Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State has promised to stick to a well-tailored and people-oriented agenda for transparent and purposeful leadership in the state.
The governor, who is standing for re-election in 2023, said he would sustain the culture of adherence to his roadmap as done in the last three years.
Fintiri said the 11-Point Agenda of his administration helped him in the efficient and prudent management of Adamawa commonwealth.
This agenda, according to him, helped him in promoting good governance to overcome the failures of previous administrations and promote the well-being of citizens in line with the manifesto of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
An aide to the governor, Marcus Kufana, said his principal’s fiscal realism is what led to the reduction of the budget size of N244 billion, approved by his predecessors in 2019, to N143 billion for 2020, which was considered fiscally realistic even for 2019.
His words: “Subsequently, in 2021, the budget size was N140 billion in view of the COVID-19 pandemic and its attendant global economic uncertainties.
“After the shocks of COVID-19, with the hope for a global economic rebound, Fintiri presented a budget of N163,629,910,040 for 2022. All these were necessitated by the amount of revenue generated internally, federation allocation, capital receipts, grants and other sources.”
