Daniel Tabiyatiya

Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri couldn’t come at a better time than this, Adamawa citizens must be proud of electing him as the number one citizen of the state.

Tagging him as a “Saviour” is not out of point, within a short period he has changed the narratives, he has restored hope to the hopeless.

Governor Fintiri had during the weekend embarked on a historic journey to the ancient city of Mubi, the hometown of the immediate past Governor.

Not only did he receive a rousing welcome, the whole town stood still as they welcomed a true son of the soil.

The Governor who was in the state for a tripartite mission first visited the palace of the Emir of Mubi for his royal blessing.

The palace was filled to the brim upon the arrival of the Governor, which signaled the love and adoration the Mubi emirate council has for him.

Not only did he intimate the Royal Father on his plans in the area, he urged him to sit with his council members and produce a suitable land so that he can build an international market since Mubi is known to be a market hub.

The 2 days working visit by the Governor was to have an on the spot assessment of facilities and equipment’s at the refurbished Mubi water treatment plant, Adamawa State University Mubi and the Mubi General Hospital so as to address the yearnings and aspirations of the masses.

On the issue of pipe borne water, we all know that water is an essential part of life and it was in this regard that the present administration under the leadership of Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri collaborated with the European Union (EU) to provide water to the people of Mubi.

Upgrading of the treatment plant is a proof that water shortage will soon be a thing of the past.

At the Mubi General Hospital, which is the only referral centre in the whole northern senatorial zone, the Governor was taken round some wards.

There and then, he revealed that plans are under way to upgrading facilities and equipment’s, improving management staff by employing more doctors and nurses to meet up the needs of the patients.

A visit to the Adamawa State University Mubi proved to be a mission to rescue the once centre of excellence.

Not only did he go round to inspect projects currently ongoing in the school, he visited the newly renovated boys hostel that was razed down by fire months ago.

Amidst roaring cheers from the students, he gave them a message of hope that his administration will build 3 more faculties, a hostel that will accommodate 2000 students, and will also pay scholarship allowances to all tertiary indigents.

The crowd went agog when he finally told them that he was briefed about the institutions inability to organize a convocation ceremony for almost 11 years, where he promised them that he will facilitate for the school to hold its first convocation ceremony after a long period.

You might think that Governor Fintiri is just like the ordinary Nigerian politicians who don’t stick to their words, even the opposition are aware of his talk and do antics.

All these are not just mere promises, Fintiri has proven without any iota of doubt that he means business.

He is calmly fulfilling his campaign promises, let’s just continue to pray for his success.

The greatest investment in this world is to invest in human beings, and Governor Fintiri is an expert in that field.
