NGOs remain suspended in Adamawa – Gov Fintiri

Activities of non-governmental organisations in Adamawa State remain suspended, at least till the end of the elections, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri has ordered.

The governor gave the order on Wednesday, stressing that dealings of all local and international NGOs operating in the state remain restricted until after the March 18th Governorship and State Assembly elections.

A statement by his Press Secretary, Mr Humwashi Wonosikou, explained that the governor, who had earlier directed the restriction during a statewide broadcast, maintains his conviction that the involvement of some of the NGOs in politics instead of their core responsibility of humanitarian assistance necessitates the move to suspend their activities while voting lasts, to ensure sanity.

He added that relevant enforcement agencies would continue to assert their authority, as they had been directed to ensure compliance.
