2023 Elections: Fintiri Bans NGOs In Adamawa

2023 Elections: Fintiri Bans NGOs In Adamawa

The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has banned the activities of Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the state.

The governor made this known in Yola on Tuesday while addressing the press.

The governor said the decision became necessary to end the issue of vote buying perpetrated by the NGOs. 

“It has become evident that most NGOs are dabbling into politics in the name of providing humanitarian assistance to the people. 

"Government can’t fold its arms and watch such so-called NGOs mislead the people and inject divisive tendencies into their psyche.

“In furtherance of our desire to reorder the electoral behaviour of our people and remove the influence of NGOs who have reduced their statutory mandate to that of vote buying machine, government has decided to suspend the activities of local and international NGOs throughout the state until March 15, 2023, when the elections are over", he stated.
