Why I Resigned As VC To Become Fintiri’s Running Mate – Adamawa Dep. Gov-Elect
The Deputy Governor-Elect of Adamawa State, Professor Kaletapwa Farauta, has revealed why she resigned her position as the Vice Chancellor of Adamawa State University to become the running mate to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri in the recently concluded governorship election in the state.
Farauta claimed that she took the risk of going into politics because the people encouraged her to do so.
Speaking on Channel’s TV Program “Politics Today’ on Monday, the deputy governor-elect said;
“I knew that when I left the classroom and university environment to take up being the running mate of a sitting governor, it’s either I win or I lose,”
“I believe that God orders people’s destinies and whatever comes your way is a risk and whatever you take up to do in life, as long as you believe in God, and believe in yourself, God will sort it out with you.”
“The community prompted me, my people prompted me and of course my boss did”.
“We might have hurt each other in the process of politicking. Now, that is over, we should put it behind us as brothers and sisters, mend our fences because the things that unite us are more than the things that divide us.
“If we focus on things that unite us as Adamawa citizens and Nigerians, we will build a better Adamawa State for ourselves and our children yet unborn”.
