Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has appealed to citizens, friends, and his associates to avoid lavish ceremonies with the aim of celebrating his birthday, billed for Friday, October 27th. Instead, the Governor has asked for prayers for Adamawa and the nation, adding that the people urgently need “fiscal space” so they can cope with the enormous economic demands unleashed by the removal of fuel subsidies. He notes that he is sensitive to the hardships facing the people as they grapple with the economic effects of the policy direction of the federal government. “The solution to today’s new and complex challenges requires the strengthening and revitalization of an inclusive governance and policy direction, which we are determined to pursue until every community is touched and nobody is left behind.” “I am not disposed to celebrating while challenges stare the people in the face. I am a governor who has human feelings and will not leave anything to chance until all Adamawa citizens are comfortable.” Governor Fintiri has therefore directed that prayers be said on Friday in mosques and churches on Sunday for peace and harmony in the land amid the challenges of fuel subsidy removal.
