A staunchest loyalist of the All Progressives congress,APC,whose support for the party has earned him the opportunity to became the first North East vice Chairman as a founding member,Dr Umar Duhu warned the way PDP in coming government of Adamawa state through its transitional committee are acting outside the purview of her assignments with a perceived efforts to be vindictive to Governor Muhammadu Umaru Jibrila Bindo’s outgoing government
According to Umar the major responsibilities of a transition committee is to take stock of the assets and liabilities the State and to identify the levels of ongoing projects and it’s completion under successive governments. Anything order than this is contrary to the cardinal objectives is vindictive.
He further say that the duty is of the committee is in clear contrast with the objectives for which the committee is set up in the first instance.
“The committee in Adamawa State has rather assumed the responsibility of an investigative and a vendetta outfit rather than engaging itself on its core objectives for which it was setup.” Duhu said
The APC stalwart of Adamawa state told our reporter in an interview the Fintiri led transition committee must understand that, His Excellency Governor Sen. Mohammed Umaru Jibrilla Bindow remains the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, until May 29, 2019 when he is not re-sworn in as the Executive Governor of Adamawa State.
“The responsibilities of running the State is constitutionally vested in him, until such a date and time another governor is sworn in. Therefore, Governor Bindow will continue to discharge all his constitutional responsibilities inhindered, until his last day in office.” He stressed
While responding to question that Fintiri’s transitional committee raised an alarm of auctioning government properties by Bindo’s government,Umar responded that they are not to reply or join issues with any opposing party let alone it’s so called PDP transition committee over divisive tendencies of misrepresenting facts through her press statement issued by the secretary of the transition committee who ordinarily should have been a guide to only the committee and it’s sanctity
Duhu continue to say that the work experiences of both the chairman and secretary of the transition committee, their actions fail short of the personification of their carrier in public services. As elders in their rights, their preoccupations should have been that of uniting the state rather than further polarizing the state across sentiments and chauvinism. It is therefore not in doubt that, of all the governors that governed Adamawa State, none, has achieved the fetes of His Excellency Governor Mohammed Umaru Jibrilla (Bindow) in terms of infrastructural development of the state and I stand to be corrected. It is therefore my appeal and call to all well-meaning citizens of Adamawa State to raise to the occasion and condemn the actions of the committee and the purported publications by the so-called Fintiri led PDP transition committee with their divisive dispositions.
He faulted and refuted the allegations of selling AADIL by saying that anyone that alleges must substantiate because anything that has to do with government assets requires the sanction of the State Auditor General.
He revealed that Adamawa State has a statutory Civil Service Commission. No appointment in the State which does not pass through the State CSC and that regard no one has the right whatsoever and if not a sadist has any moral justification to accused the Governor Bindow of any compliancy.
“I also challenge the committee and anyone for that matter, to come up with a cogent and verifiable facts to substantiate their allegation, else, they should henceforth seal their lips else, the APC will not hesitate to take decisive actions against these mischief makers. The committee secretary being a legal practitioner and it is my thought and expectations that, he knows his onions and in the event of any inactions of Governor Sen. Bindow, he Barr. John Yaya knows what to do.” He threatened
He warn that:” Sen Bindow is still the Governor of Adamawa State,in full control of the State,and he shall continue to discharge all his constitutional duties and responsibilities, until the last day in Office. No one should take him for granted and no one should misconstrue his silence for cowardice.”
“I therefore call on all well-meaning citizens of Adamawa State to remain law abiding and use this Ramadan period for surber reflection and to pray for Adamawa State and Nigeria for our peaceful coexistence in love and brotherhood.” Duhu called
