Preparation is in the pipeline by the Adamawa State Government to roll out palliative measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal on the citizens across the state.

Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri revealed this when he received a delegation of Mbula, Bwaza and Bille communities in Demsa LGA on a courtesy call in the Conference Hall Government House, Yola Thursday.

With this therefore, Governor Fintiri called on local government council chairmen and other public officers to ensure judicious distribution of the parliative when it is ready.

“I call on council chairmen to ensure people get this parliative. Whatever it is and in whatever form should be distributed fairly. Everybody must be treated equally,” he said.

Fintiri expressed worry on the rate of poverty in the state, and vowed that his administration in the next four years will indeed reduce it drastically to the barest minimum.

He said “If you go out there, you will see poverty in the faces of people and in the next four years we will remove it. We will open up your community, we will harness the potentials of everybody.

On the law banning felling and burning of trees in the state, Governor Fintiri called on traditional institution, youths and stakeholders in Mbula Chiefdom and by extension Adamawa to guard their forests.

“We have to save our ecosystem and environment. Don’t allow strangers to cut down our forests,” said Governor Fintiri.

Speaking on the political appointments that will soon be released, Governor Fintiri tasked the would-be appointees to ensure they work for the state rather than their personal interests.

“Whoever that will be appointed should not fail the people. He should take the responsibility that he is coming to serve the people of this state,” said Governor Fintiri.

Leader of the delegation, Chief Boniface Zebulun felicitates with Governor Fintiri on his re-election, and pledged that the communities will continue to rally round hi administration for the better.

“We thank you for stabilising everything. You carried everybody along. We hope nothing will hinder you from what you intend to do for our people,” Zebulun added.

Contributing separately, the District Head of Mbula, Chief Timaus Fwa and Chief Sena Murray saluted Governor Fintiri for bringing strength of character and inclusiveness into government.

They lauded the Governor for improving the civil service sector and making peace a major falcrum of his administration among other achievements.
