RT. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri
Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri (AUF) was born on October 27th, 1967 in Gulak, Madagali Local Government area of Adamawa State. He grew up in a world that had become so conscious of the primacy of Western Education and Religious knowledge, both of which he struggled to acquire at an early age.
He had his early primary School in Central Primary School Gulak from 1975-1981, Government Day Secondary School Gulak and Government Secondary School Michika from 1981-1986.
AUF holds a post graduate Diploma in Policy and Strategic studies, from the University of Maiduguri 2004 after obtaining his first degree in History from the same University in 1992.
Most of his teachers, mentors and contemporaries know AUF as an outstanding Student and an athlete throughout his boyhood and adolescent years. After successfully running his private business enterprise, he was elected to represent Madagali Constituency in 2007 and re-elected in 2011.
Fintiri won the Governorship election of Adamawa State that took place on the 9th of March 2019. However, the election was declared inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes was more than the margin between the winner and his close opponent.
Umaru Fintiri was declared winner of the election in the early hours of Friday after having secured 376,552 votes to defeat incumbent Governor Jibrilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who polled 336,386 votes.
AUF is married with four children.
