FORMER vice president and presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s son Adamu has been picked by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri as one of his commissioner nominees after he was included on a list of 23 sent to the state house of assembly.
Earlier today, Governor Fintiri forwarded his list of nominees to the Adamawa State House of Assembly, with Adamu Atiku and Abdullahi Prambe, the secretary of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), being the two big names on it. They will form part of an administration that will include 23 commissioners and 40 special advisers to the governor.
Other nominees include Mohammed Umar (Madagali), Sunday Matthew (Mubi North), Professor Isa Abdullahi (Mubi South), Hassan Kaigama (Maiha), Dr Umar Garba (Hong), Lami Patrick (Gombi) and Usman Diyajo (Girei). Others are Umaru Daware (Fufore), Ibrahim Mijinyawa (Yola North), Mustapha Musa Jika (Yola South), Sanusi Farouk (Toungo), Bappa Isa (Ganye), Iliya James (Demsa), Sushi Khobe (Numan), Justina Nkom (Lamurde), and Shuaibu Audu (Mayo-Belwa).
Abdullahi Prembe was nominated from Song local government area, while Adamu Atiku was nominated from Jada Local Government Area. Also nominated from Jada is Aloysius Babadoke, while Chik shares with Jada the same good fortune of having two nominees in Elijah Tumba and Ishaya Dabari.
