We inherited socially destabilised Adamawa, says Fintiri
Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, has said that his administration inherited a socially destabilised state with a disenchanted citizenry living in constant fear.
At a stakeholders’ meeting yesterday in Yola, Fintiri said Adamawa occupied 33rd position among the 36 states in terms of underdevelopment and infrastructure.
“We inherited a socially-destabilised society with a disenchanted citizenry who live in constant fear of losing their lives, livelihood and properties,” he stated.
The governor pointed out that absence of justice and fairness instituted a culture of identity politics that negatively took its toll on the people.
Noting that perennial farmer/herders’ conflicts were claiming lives, herds, farm produce and even settlements, he added: “The situation was so bad that no community in Adamawa could claim freedom from it. Kidnapping and unrestrained urban crime such as the activities of Shila Boys cult went on brazenly as if there were no constituted authority to contain them.”
