GOVERNOR FINTIRI IS SUCCEEDING AGAINST ALL ODDS.
By: Foya Puja
The economics of what didn’t happen is always appreciated; its value is also often disputed. Be that as it may, Adamawa State cannot be denied the sense of progress. During the aftermath of the elections that brought Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to office, we have continued to see the Governor make determined efforts to salvage the State from the precarious economic situations.
Governor Fintiri has proven himself to be a purposeful leader during his double stints as acting Governor by providing developments in all strata of life which has earned him the sobriquet “ATM”.
If there has been any political weapon that Governor Fintiri is using effectively to befuddle wailers it is his tremendous and visible projects spread across the State that is giving sleepless nights to those who choose to be deliberately blind and willfully deaf to acknowledge the exceptional commitment of the ATM Governor to making Adamawa Work again.
In times like this, criticism is like a tonic. It strengthens and invigorates. There is this axiom that “the only sure way to fend criticism is to do nothing and be nothing.” I have come to discover that unfair criticism emanates from people who are not in government. Those in the opposition feel it is even morally right to bring down the government because they are not in the corridors of power. This tendency gives enough nourishment to the ever-growing hatred and rumors flying all round.
