ON Tuesday, it was reported that EFCC declared ousted Governor Nyako wanted just after he was impeached by Adamawa lawmakers. In a latest development, the Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Alhaji Ahmadu

paid him a congratulatory visit at the Government House,

be my focus, and I will treat people equally irrespective of
tribe or religion.”

administration in order to save Adamawa State, adding that
the action was simply democracy in action.
Fintiri said, “With the support I’m getting from the people of
Adamawa State as well as the People’s Democratic Party in
Adamawa and the Federal Government, and with God on my
side, within the 90 days transitional period, citizens will feel
the impact of government more than in the last seven years.”
He expressed joy over the visit by his colleagues and sought
their prayers, advice and support, stressing that his doors
would always be open for them and they should not hesitate
to draw his attention, if he was deviating.

and to also express gratitude to him for leading a cause that
