A serving member of the Adamawa House of Assembly, Hon. Abdulraham Isa, has alleged that the past administration of Barr. Bala Nggilari and Rt. Hon. Umaru Fintiri, set the state backwards “with their sentimental ideologies and selfish interest.”
Abdulraham grounded his allegations on how the two former governors allegedly failed to pay attention to the Sukur Kingdom, which was picked by UNESCO as a world heritage centre in the country.
” I am disappointed in the past leadership of Bala and Fintiri who failed to revive the only international heritage that we have in the entire North-East, but were busy fighting themselves until they left office,” Isah said.
Sukur Kingdom, which is in Madagali Local Government of Adamawa State and where the two past governors hailed from, was rated among the best seven in the country by UNESCO because of its rich ancestral culture. Despite this, the kingdom did not receive any government attention under Bala and Nggilari.
Isah, who is also the chairman Committee on Budget and appropriation in the Adamawa House of Assembly and chairman Integrity Group in the Assembly, pledged to oppose any act of maladministration, especially misappropriation of funds, by the executive.
He also called on the state government to pick separate days for market activities in the international cattle markets in Mubi and Gerei, stating that holding the markets on the same day deprives the state of the opportunity to generate more internal revenue.
