We’ll probe Nyako – Governor Fintiri

He said: “We shall set up a judicial panel of inquiry to probe Nyako’s administration and we shall cooperate with all anti-graft agencies to recover stolen state funds

The Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, said the government had concluded plans to probe former Governor Murtala Nyako over its N82 billion debt profile.
Fintiri announced this in a broadcast to the people of the state in Yola, the state capital, on Tuesday.
He said: “We shall set up a judicial panel of inquiry to probe Nyako’s administration and we shall cooperate with all anti-graft agencies to recover stolen state funds.
“This will be done through effective publicity and bring to public notice the abuses that necessitated and justified this change of government in Adamawa State.
“Furthermore, the Secretary to the State Government shall in due course inform the world about these scandalous abuses and how the simple canon of government activities were thrown overboard.”
Fintiri added that his interim administration inherited a debt profile of more than N12 billion in the statutory revenue account alongside liabilities amounting to N70 billion, said to have been diverted to non-viable projects.
“My administration has mapped out strategies to reinvigorate the various sectors of the economy through which dividends of democracy can reach the citizens,” he said.
Fintiri said he was committed to handing over a better Adamawa State to the next administration.
The acting governor said local governments would be treated properly as an effective tier of government through prompt release of funds.
He urged traditional rulers, religious leaders, community leaders, security agencies and the people of the state to participate fully in bringing back the lost glory of Adamawa State.
