Fintiri resumes Adamawa assembly as Speaker

10 October 2014, 14:33

Yola - Former acting Governor of Adamawa, Ahmadu Fintiri, has resumed office as Speaker of the state House of Assembly.

Fintiri was on October 8, removed as governor by a Federal High Court, Abuja, and replaced by the former Deputy Governor of the state, Bala Ngilari, who had challenged the acting governor's tenure.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Mr Solomon Kumangar, on Friday in Yola, said Fintiri expressed appreciation to the people of Adamawa for the support accorded him during his two months and three weeks tenure as acting governor.

The statement said Fintiri also expressed gratitude to his colleagues in the state assembly and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who shared his vision and zeal to rescue and emancipate the people of Adamawa.

 It said Fintiri had taken the judgement of the court in good fate and urged his supporters and the people of Adamawa to do the same.

 "However, in exercise of his rights as a citizen as guaranteed under the law and country's constitution, the erstwhile acting Governor has filed an appeal challenging the decision of the court, confident that the course of democracy and justice shall prevail at the end of the day," the statement said.
