Fintiri meets Jonathan, insists Nyako defrauded state

share on:

Adamawa State Acting Governor, Ahmadu Fintri, on Monday met behind closed doors with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

That was the first time Fintri would be meeting the President since the state House of Assembly sacked former Governor Murtala Nyako.

He told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that he was at the Presidential Villa to update Jonathan of the situation in the state after the governor’s ouster.

He said the state under his leadership was currently engaging in confidence building by correcting some of the wrongs of the former governor.

He said, “Adamawa is fine, Adamawa is calm. We are into confidence building, having removed Nyako and the destruction of infrastructure and moral of our people.

“We have gone into building of confidence. We are trying to pay our salaries. Salaries of workers because for months, he has not paid their salaries. That is what we are doing now.”

Fintri, who was quoted as saying during his visit to the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party on Friday that he had returned the party’s stolen mandate, claimed that that was not the reason why Nyako was sacked.

But he said he had to say so as a party man.

“You saw the allegations and they have been proven by the panel, so that cannot be the reason why we removed the man. There were even so many other issues that we could not bring as part of the allegations that formed his removal.

“But definitely, as a PDP man that has taken over as acting governor in Adamawa State, I have to say that I brought back to my party the stolen mandate by the former governor.”

Fintri challenged those who claimed that members of the state House of Assembly were financially induced to sack Nyako to come up with proof.

“Who gave the money? There must be an evidence of the person who gave the money. In this country, people are used to whatever situation that happened, it is about money. Who gave the money?,” he queried.

The acting governor also said it was wrong to accuse Jonathan of muscling opposition by the impeachment because Nyako only stole the people’s mandate to the All Progressives Congress.

He said the former governor was sacked because he stole state fund.

He added, “Nyako is not an opposition man. He only stole the mandate of the PDP into the APC. How did the President get involved in this local issue in Adamawa?

“The man has stolen our money. That is the bottom line of it.”

Fintri refused to comment on the whereabouts of the former governor.
