The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has hailed the Peoples Democratic Party for disqualifying the state acting governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, saying it is a right step in the right direction.
The state publicity secretary of APC, Phineas Padio, said the action is a deserved treatment for “a traitor”, as Fintiri’s actions over time have shown he felt no compunction to betray people that assisted him.
According to Padio, Nyako singlehandedly helped Fintiri to become a member of the House of Assembly when his people rejected him only for him to come back and impeach the governor in order to take-over his office.
His words: “Despite all what Nyako did for him, Fintiri turned against Governor Nyako by spearheading the impeachment of the then speaker, Sadiq Dasin, who was loyal to Nyako. The governor had wanted the speakership slot to be given to the Central zone in order to balance the power equation in the state. Nyako as governor was from the South, his deputy Ngillari was from the north, while Speaker Dasin was from the Central.
“After the removal of Mr Dasin, Fintiri took over the speakership despite being from the North, where the deputy governor hails from and later impeached the governor just to succeed him.”
