Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has expressed his confidence in winning the state’s governorship polls even if the Nigerian constitution allows him to run for a third term in office.
Fintiri made this known on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics. The governor who is currently running for a second term under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded Adamawa governorship election spoke on his high hope of winning the poll even though the Independent National Electoral Commission declared the poll inconclusive last week.

Although final results counted by INEC showed that Fintiri scored the highest votes, the electoral body said the canceled votes were more than the margin of victory between Fintiri and Senator Aishatu Dahiru aka Binani of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Before the poll was declared inconclusive, Fintiri scored 421,524 votes, while Binani got 390,275 votes.
During the interview, the governor explained that he is indeed the choice of the people and that if he hadn’t been wanted, he would not have been leading in the election, winning 16 local governments out of 21.

“If the opportunity would be provided for a governor to contest for the third time, I think I am one of those that can win election three times in that state,” he stated.
“I am one of the most performing governors in the country. Go and carry out your survey. I am one governor that has developed the infrastructure excellently across all the local government areas. I have turned around the state that now looks like Abuja.”
