Fintiri promised to pay counselors their benefits, entitlements

By Suru Charles

Wrinkles on the faces of the past local government legislators in Adamawa state were noticed to have immediately disappeared, paving way for smiles when the state governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, promised to pay them all their benefits and entitlement before the expiration of his first tenure.

The promise, as noticed by The Trumpet, came yesterday when both the past and present local government legislators were granted audience by the number one citizen of the state in Yola, the state capital.

The legislators both past and present who thronged out in their numbers, as observed by our correspondent, could not hide their joy when the pronouncement was made, as they vowed to collectively work for the governor to achieve his ambition of being re-elected in the forthcoming general polls.

The governor tasked the present local government council’s legislators on the need for them to work in harmony with their council’s chairmen believing that with such cooperation, the state will achieve the much desired growth for their various councils.

Citing the ongoing development at the state level, the same feast, he believed, can only be replicated at the local government levels, when the council boss and his counsellors put aside their differences and work as a team.

The governor reiterated his administration’s commitment towards spreading smiles on the faces of the people and assured the counsellors of his administration’s determination to pay all their benefits and entitlements.

He also charged them to work tirelessly in collaboration with their council’s chairmen to frustrate the already existing peace in their local government councils.

Elated by his promise, the team leaders of the Councillors Forum, Michael Okopi and Suleiman Mohammed Jada, vowed to tread extra legitimate miles in order to ensure that the governor is re-elected in the next general election.

Some of the council’s legislators who bared their minds to our correspondent, said they are optimistic that the governor will fulfil his promise “because we know him as a man of his word.”

Craving for anonymity, one of the counselors who took our correspondent down the memory lane on how they were not carried along by the previous administrations, said the incumbent administration “under the leadership of this governor, has been magnanimous to our present colleagues, so I have no doubt that he will keep to his promise.”
