Adamawa State governor Ahmadu Fintiri, has won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary in the state.
Fintri, who is a first term PDP governor, is seeking a second term in 2023.
He secured the party’s ticket to contest in 2023 after polling 663 votes.
Up to 668 delegates participated in the election held in Yola, the capital of the state, with Fintri achieving a landslide victory.
The governor, who announced his re-election bid in April, had said he will continue the developmental efforts recorded by his administration.
“We have done so much and there is more to be done to better the lots of our people and our dear state. We have built a trusting relationship with the electorates, majority of whom are the masses where our support is derived because our party needs to continue on the path of victory,” he had said.
“After a very wide consultation within our great party and outside it, within the state and outside it, with my family, friends, associates and leaders, I wish to formally inform you that I have accepted to offer myself once again to seek for the endorsement of our great party, the PDP, to carry its flag in the 2023 governorship election.
“I believe you can trust me again as you have done before. There is indeed nothing about me that either you or the entire citizens of Adamawa state do not know. And there is nothing on the shelf of your developmental needs that I do not know.”
