A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress
(APC) in Adamawa State, Honorable
Abdullahi Yapak has applauded
Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri over
infrastructural development across the state.
Yapak said in a press interview with Daily Asset that being in a political party different from that of the governor
will not stop him from commenting on the good works of the governor.
Yapak, a former member
representing Verre Constituency in
the state House of Assembly under the
platform of the APC, said one of the infrastructural
developments of Governor Fintiri
is the construction of road from Army
Barracks via 1000 housing units to Numan Road.
He said the road construction
in the area has brought succor to the
good people of the local government area, enabling them easy access in terms of transporting their farm produce, doing businesses and other important things.
The APC chieftain further said that
the road linking Verre was in a terrible condition but on his assumption
of office as governor, Finitiri finished the
construction that brings smiles to the people of Verre.
He added that Governor Umaru Fintiri paying WAEC and NECO fees for all the secondary school students in the state is another wonderful development that will relieve parents from paying fees for their children.
He further said that the construction
of classes and rehabilitation of schools
especially in Fufore Government Secondary School and others are a demonstration of good governance in the state.
Also, according to him, giving free
scholarship to the state indigenes to attend schools across the country and abroad to improve the level of education in Adamawa State is a highly commendable gesture.
The former lawmaker added
that the rate of insecurity in the state has drastically reduced particularly in Verre constituency, as there were issues of kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities in the state, all of which have been curtailed by the Fintiri administration.
“I must commend
the governor because of the move to
curb security challenges by
forming vigilante groups for checking
criminal activities, particularly in my Verre Constituency,” he said.
The former lawmaker said that
Governor Fintiri has done a lot of things for which Adamawa people will never
