Fintiri wins Adamawa PDP governorship primary

ADA

The Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Umaru

Fintiri, in the early hours of Sunday won the

governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic

Party (PDP) to complete the tenure of impeached

former Governor Murtala Nyako.

Fintiri was voted by 60 per cent of the more than

878 delegates at the poll conducted by a former

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon.

Dimeji Bankole.

While a former Executive Secretary of the

Universal Basic Education Commission, Dr. Ahmed

Mohammed Modibbo, came second, a former

Military Administrator of Lagos State, Brig-Gen.

Buba Marwa was third.

A source said: “The poll was free and fair. The

power of incumbency worked for Fintiri who had

secured the loyalty and support of statutory

delegates like local government chairmen,

councillors, and other political appointees.

“Also before the poll, a former Political Adviser to

the President, Ahmed Gulak, stepped down for

Fintiri, making up to four aspirants conceding the

slot to the Acting Governor.”

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress for

the October 11 governorship election is expected

to emerge on Sunday.
