The Governor who is the chairman of the reconciatory committee on the side of the Presidential Candidate gave the assurance in an interview with newsmen shortly on arrival from Abuja at Yola International Airport, Saturday.

He revealed that reconcilations into the matter have since commenced, saying as leaders they will put everything possible to ensure the two camps are back as one united party members for the success of PDP.

“We have started talking and will continue to talk. Politics is about interaction, discussion and understanding and we have started that and very soon we will be putting our hands to ensure that the reconcilation is over,” Fintiri said.

Fintiri opined that Nigerins will not forgive the PDP if it fails to produce the next president of the country as according to him everything is shattered and in confusion leaving the citizenry at the mercy of God.

Binani Is using Fed Govt Support Programs For Political Gains – Fintiri’s Aide, Tukur

The Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, Muhammad Bukari Tukur says he has noted with displeasure the way the ongoing Federal Government Support Programs, Conditional Cash Transfer, (CCT) meant for the poorest of the poor is being diverted along political lines.

In a press statement signed by the SSA New Media and made available to news men in Yola, Tukur fingered the Senator Representing Adamawa Central Senatorial District and a gubernatorial flag-bearer for the opposition All Progressives Congress, (APC) Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Binani).

According to the SSA, the Senator had hijacked the process by usurpation of the original list meant for the project where the true representation of the most vulnerable in Adamawa State was domiciled.

His major worry is that instead of adhering to the list that is a true reflection of the vulnerable in Adamawa State, a new list from the National Assembly brought in strange beneficiaries who are not from Adamawa State.

“Adamawa people anticipated the advent of this programme with excitement, unfortunately, their happiness was shortlived as the program execution started. The 5-day programme was supposed to end on Saturday, but was inconsiderably extended to Sunday Morning when many of the masses will be in Churches. This is sending wrong signal.
This selective award of beneficiaries based on political lines has raised suddenly murmuring among the masses of the state. This is not a good omen” he pointed out.

He called on the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, His Excellency, Alh. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to intervene on behalf of the abandoned vulnerable who were shortchanged. Adding that this will go along way to help calm down the masses who are already agitating to take to the streets to protest their anger and frustrations.

He recalled that a similar unfortunate incident happened during the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA’s fertilizer distribution scheme. The preferential treatment based on political affiliation in favour of APC was masterminded and executed. Tukur, opined that allowing this current impunity to go on, will be a case of taking the masses for granted.

“Owing to the colossal failure of the ruling party to provide the State with purposeful leadership and dividends of democracy in the past three year

”This political mischief, wrapped in a news garment, is apparently a dirty political hatchet job that calls for immediate clarification from the Abubakar Media Office.

“Said it is in possession of a ‘security signal’ on the said recruitment exercise, without further presenting facts, but only quoted some anonymous politicians,” it said.

“With the leadership of the Bauchi State Amalgamated Associations of Butchers, Hunters, Cobblers, Blacksmiths, and Berbers after opening the Associations’ State Secretariat in Bauchi.
