Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintri has been disqualified
from the gubernatorial election coming up in the state later this month by the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) screening committee.
stated that the screening committee disqualified him based on moral ground. It was
also noted that his defection from the All Progressive Congress (APC) was also
another reason for his disqualification, but it is ironical that Nuhu Ribadu
who just defected to the PDP was cleared to contest.
