Governor Ahamdu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa State has promised to prosecute all those who wanted to steal the people’s mandate in the last governorship election in the state.
Fintiri said this while addressing the state after the court verdict for the first time.
He said, “I remain calm when the coup to steal your mandate failed even when the perpetrators had the temerity and shamelessness went to courts to look for what they failed to forcefully take.
“As for those who connived with the then Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Hudu Ari to make the state pass through those democratically embarrassing moments will be duly prosecuted according to the dictates of the law.
“We are humbled by the fact that we all have chosen a better future for our dear state through the massive votes we scored in the last election.
“Adamawa state is a PDP state as shown in last Saturday’s house of assembly re-run election in Mayo-belwa.”
The governor also reiterated his government’s dedication to serving the state with a renewed commitment to the ongoing free education policy through the functional public school system and payment of WAEC and NECO and health care, health insurance that makes it easier for the vulnerable to access quality service.
Recall that the REC had announced Binani of the APC as the winner when the collation of results was still ongoing.
However, INEC declared REC’s declaration null and void.
