Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, Adamawa Governor-elect, says he is ready to step on toes to address injustice against the people of the state by the outgoing administration of Gov. Jibrilla Bindow.
Fintiri made this known on Saturday in Yola while receiving report by a 67-man State Transition Committee.
He said findings by the committee revealed lots of breeches and mismanagement of government’s funds that needed to be looked into.
While lamenting that the outgoing administration received about N332 billion federal allocation with nothing much to show, Fintiri said his administration would look into the report in detail with the aim of implementing its salient recommendations.
“It is disheartening to note that the outgoing government had, from inception, always been taking over-draft to augment salary payments while internally generated revenue were being collected but not applied judiciously in the interest of tax payers in the state.
“While also the government had failed to create businesses for the state and even resort to the sales of state-owned assets in corporate organizations simply to service personal interest, ” he said.
Ismaila said that the committee found out that some of the lands sold out by the outgoing administration included school land and a historical German cemetery of 1948.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Fintiri of PDP defeated Gov. Bindow of APC in the general election. (NAN)
