The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged leaders at all levels to always remember that power is transient and as such, guide their actions towards the people accordingly.
The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who stated this on Tuesday when the party’s leadership paid a condolence visit to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa state, urged those entrusted with public office to emulate Governor Fintiri’s stewardship in delivering good governance and development to the people of Adamawa state.
Prince Secondus, who led a delegation of PDP leaders to condole Governor Fintiri over the death of his father, said the governor’s sense of duty and coordination, as well as his efforts towards ensuring peaceful coexistence in the state demonstrate the values he received from his father.
According to Secondus, “you represent peace which the air around Adamawa has shown.
“Your wish was to see your father live longer and see your achievements in office but God has called him to come to a place of peace. There is a time for everything. Those in government should know that their tenure will come to an end one day.
“You were elected on the basis of your performance while in office. This is a demonstration of the legacies you got from your father.
“The steps taken so far, including appointments, show that you are a man of fate who live by your words.
“We pray that God’s wisdom will continue to direct you in your determination to render service to your people and our nation at large”.
In his response, Governor Fintiri assured that he will leave no stone unturned in repositioning the state for greater productivity for the benefit of the people, in line with the manifesto of the PDP.
According to him, “PDP has come back as the dominant political party in the state”, and his administration is determined to carry out its responsibilities diligently.
Governor Fintiri prayed for a better and stronger party as well as the consolidation of the successes of the 2019 elections.
