Group seeks probe of Fintiri’s N22bn expenditure

10 May 2015, 15:48

Yola - A group, Adamawa Progressive Movement (APM), has called for the probe of N22 billion expenditure incurred by Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri's 86 day-old administration.

It would be recalled that Fintiri, Speaker of Adamawa House of Assembly, assumed office as Acting Governor, following the impeachment of Murtala Nyako in July 2014.

Fintiri was later removed by a Federal High Court.

The convener of the group, Sunday Wugira, made the call at a press conference in Yola.

Wugira said that the probe became necessary as some of the projects allegedly executed by the Fintiri administration were sited in areas controlled by insurgents.

He said the Fintiri administration sited projects in some villages of Madagali and Michika Local Government Areas, which were no go areas.

"There is also contract for the Faculty of Law in Adamawa State University Mubi that needs to be verified," Wugira said.

Wugira observed that lack of proper accountability has been the bane of development in the state, adding that APM had taken it upon itself to henceforth seek probity and accountability from government in the state.

"Our quest to beam our search light on the administration of Fintiri follows the serious questions of financial sleaze which his 86 days administration left unanswered.

"In the same vein, we shall also beam our searchlight on the activities of the current administration and will make our findings known very soon."
