Adamawa traditional rulers declare support for acting governor

30 July 2014, 10:03

Yola  - Traditional rulers in Adamawa have declared their full support and commitment to working with the acting governor of the state, Ahmadu Fintiri, for peace and unity of the state.

A delegation of the traditional rulers made the declaration while paying Sallah homage to the acting Governor at the Government House in Yola on Monday.

The delegation, led by the Lamido of Adamawa, Barkindo Mustapha, included  the Emir of Mubi, Abubakar Isa; Hama Bachama; and Honest Irimiya.

The others on the delegation were Ganwari Ganye; Umaru Sanda; Hama Bata, and Alhamdu Teneke.

The Lamido expressed the commitment of the state’s traditional institution to working with the acting governor's transitional government for maximum result.

He urged the governor to be fair and just in his assignment so that the people would rally round him to ensure success.

Mustapha said his emergence, for the second time, as acting governor was an act of God, adding that the royal fathers had no doubt in his ability to deliver.

Responding, the acting governor said his administration would depend heavily on the royal fathers’ advice in running a fair and just administration.

Fintiri urged the royal fathers to continue to mobilise their subjects to be security-consciousness.

He said they should accord security agencies the maximum support needed for them to succeed.
