Adamawa State Governor Appoints 103 Assistants Across Three Categories
In a move to bolster government machinery and improve its people-oriented efficiency, Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has announced the appointment of 103 assistants in three distinct categories.
These appointments follow closely on the heels of the governor’s inauguration of 30 special advisers earlier in the week.
Categories of Appointees
According to a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou, the latest appointments encompass 37 principal special assistants, 45 senior special assistants, and 21 special assistants.
Governor Fintiri’s vision is to enhance government operations and make them more effective and aligned with the needs of the people.
Among those appointed as principal special assistants is Leader Leneke, a lawyer who assumed roles beyond his legal training during Governor Fintiri’s first term in office.
These appointments are part of the governor’s ongoing efforts to strengthen his administration and better serve the state’s residents.
Governor Fintiri’s Electoral Victory Confirmed
In a related development, the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Yola, Adamawa State’s capital, has upheld Ahmadu Fintiri’s victory in the 2023 governorship election.
The tribunal affirmed Governor Fintiri as the legitimate winner of the election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
This decision comes after the dismissal of a petition filed by Dr. Umar Ardo of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
Dr. Umar Ardo’s Petition
Dr. Umar Ardo had contested the election’s outcome, challenging Governor Fintiri’s victory following the supplementary election on April 16.
In his petition filed on May 8, Dr. Ardo cited INEC, Governor Fintiri, and 16 others as respondents. The petition alleged that the election did not adhere to the provisions of the Electoral Act and accused the first respondent (INEC) of corrupt practices, including bribery, threats, and violence.
The petitioners sought the annulment of the entire election process.
These recent developments underscore Governor Fintiri’s determination to strengthen his administration and uphold the mandate entrusted to him by the people of Adamawa State.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
