Adamawa State governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, says he don’t think he ran against any woman in Adamawa state, noting that he ran against enemies of democracy outside Adamawa state.
The governor, who stated this on Tuesday during an Interview on Channels TV, said those who were against him wanted a woman to become governor without considering his performance.
Mr Fintiri also vowed to prosecute those who perpetrated act of criminalities during the governorship election.
He said: “I don’t think I ran against any woman in Adamawa state. I ran against enemies of democracy outside Adamawa state.
“Their gang-up has not gotten anywhere. I gave God the glory. They decided to be enemies of democracy and the only scapegoat they can find is in Adamawa state.
“They wanted to put a woman from their party, forgetting that we have performed excellently well in this state.”
Mr Fintiri, however, said the people resisted imposition and voted for continuity.
“Our people love us. They voted for continuity of excellent, rural and urban development. They voted for human and capital development that we had laid a very good foundation for,” he added.
