Fintiri urges UNDP to sensitize his citizens against crisis



Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, Governor of Adamawa has urged United Nation Development Programme, UNDP, to help in educating people against crisis.

The governor made the when he received Edward Kallon, the Nigerian representative of the programme on Tuesday at the government house in Yola, capital of the state.

In a statement released on social media, the governor also promised to assist by watering down tendencies for crisis ahead of time.

The governor’s concern may not be unconnected with the rising cases of abduction and other criminal activities in the state.

He applauded the efforts of the programme towards crisis management in the state and the North East region in general, which, he said, has restored peace and serenity in the region.

While appreciating the efforts of the past administration in minimizing tendencies for crisis, he also reiterated his government’s commitment to consolidating on the achievement.

He emphasized that ‘the state is peaceful and his administration,’ and that he ‘is focused towards maintaining this great achievement through investing in infrastructure and human capital development to draw up rural urban float.’

Mr. Kallon was in the state for a farewell to the governor as he moves to Zimbabwe.
