Adamawa Governor-elect, Ahmadu Fintiri, has cautioned the out-going Governor Mohammed Bindow’s administration against what he described as “last minute employment and award of bogus contract.”
Mr Fintiri, in a statement issued on Tuesday in Yola by his media aide, Solomon Kumangar, also urged banks not to give “arbitrary loans” to the outgoing government.
The governor-elect urged the Bindow administration to show statesmanship in its action by not making things difficult for the incoming administration.
“The governor-elect wants all unnecessary expenditure and last-minute employment, not done in the past four years, halted forthwith.
“Similarly, all last-minute award of bogus contracts without following due process, should stop.
“Adamawa belongs to all and any action to the contrary would not be condoned.
“Banking institutions are hereby cautioned against giving arbitrary loans or overdrafts at this time as this will be at their own risk.
“Civil servants who get involved in shoddy transactions, aiding and abetting fraud will have themselves to blame if discovered.”
The incoming governor also urged the out-going administration to cooperate with the transition committee set up to oversee a smooth handing over come May 29.
