Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has urged citizens, relatives, and allies to avoid lavish celebrations for his birthday, which is set for Friday, October 27th.
The governor’s press secretary, Humwashi Wonosoiku, cited the governor as stating Instead of an energising celebration, the governor has requested prayers for Adamawa and the nation, saying that the people urgently want “fiscal freedom” to deal with the massive economic pressures released by the elimination of gasoline subsidies.
He expresses sympathy for the people’s difficulties in dealing with the economic consequences of the federal government’s policy orientation.
“Today’s new and complex challenges necessitate the strengthening and revitalization of inclusive governance and policy direction, which we are resolved to pursue until every community is touched and no one is left behind.”
“I am not inclined to celebrate when individuals are confronted with hardships.” I am a governor with human sympathies, and I will not rest until all Adamawa inhabitants are at ease.”
As a result, Governor Fintiri has commanded that prayers be offered on Friday in mosques and churches on Sunday for peace and unity in the land, despite the problems of the removal of fuel subsidies.
