Adamawa state Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has sworn-in 21 newly elected Local Government Council Chairmen.
He charged them to identify specific needs of their people, in line with his administration’s 11 point agenda.
Speaking at the inauguration of the new chairmen in Yola, governor charged them to go back to their respective local government areas and deliver the dividend of democracy, which their people yearn for.
Governor Fintiri said they should cultivate zero tolerance for corruption by carrying everyone along, while keeping in mind that it was the sole reason they were voted in, in the first place.
The Adamawa State Governor said the chairmen should be involved in the day-to-day running of their local government and avoid unnecessary journeys outside their areas of jurisdiction.
He said except for important official functions, his administration would not tolerate any act of official abandonment responsibility, while in pursuit of vanity.
“The exercise, which we have just witnessed has opens another Chapter towards unveiling our agenda for Adamawa State. Let me congratulate all the candidates of our great party, the PDP, for emerging victorious, along with their vice chairmen and counselors, to whom they will subsequently administer the oath of office. ….. To the newly sworn-in chairmen, the people have spoken and their voices have been heard. We should therefore be prepared to go back to our various councils to deliver the dividends of democracy which they are yearning for,” said Governor Fintiri.
