In the heart of Adamawa State, a spirited gathering unfolded, filled with determination and camaraderie.

Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, with a beaming smile, extended a helping hand to the gallant security personnel who participated in the 23 Armoured Brigade Yola Inter-Agency 25-kilometer Marathon Competition.

His generous donation of seven point four million naira echoed through the air, touching the lives of both competitors and the competition itself.

At the Gibson Jalo Cantonment, a revelation emerged from the Governor’s lips – five million naira earmarked for the competition, with an additional one hundred thousand naira promised to each of the 24 competitors. And for those who outshone the rest, a monetary prize awaited their excellence.

This tradition, etched within the Nigerian Army’s legacy, served as a crucible for sportsmanship, teamwork, and the synergy vital to face the myriad security challenges that gripped both the nation and Adamawa State.

Governor Fintiri’s impassioned plea rang out, urging the Nigerian Army to nurture this tradition, to cultivate a sustained collaboration that would pave the way for a tranquil, secure socio-economic environment not only in Adamawa but across the breadth of Nigeria.

Gratitude flowed freely from the Governor’s lips, directed towards Major General T. A. Lagbaja, the Chief of Army Staff, for his unwavering support.

He commended the security forces for the prevailing peace that adorned the state, a testament to the military and allied security agencies who discharged their duties with diligence and professionalism.

Governor Fintiri affirmed that Adamawa State basks in relative tranquillity.

The “relative peace” is coming ” due to the dedication of the military and other security agencies in discharging their duties diligently and professionally.”

“We will continue to work with relevant stakeholders and the security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of crime in the state are dealt with headlong.

“I assure the people of the State that my administration will continue to provide the needed support towards ensuring Adamawa State continue to witness seamless peace and security for people to enjoy the dividend of democracy,” He said

With profound appreciation, Governor Fintiri extended his thanks to the 23 Armoured Brigade and the collective security agencies for ushering in an era of peace.

“The Government and good people of Adamawa State are indeed grateful to 23 Brigade Nigeria Army and other security agencies for your immense contributions to our efforts in achieving peace in the State.”

He implored them to continue their efforts in curbing the activities of those intent on sowing discord and suffering among the law-abiding citizens of Adamawa State.

Fintiri noted that he will rally all stakeholders, calling for their sincere commitment to ensure harmonious coexistence within the State.

The narrative then turned to the 23 Armoured Brigade Commander, Brigadier General Muhammed Jibril Gambo, who expressed deep gratitude towards Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri.

He highlighted the essence of the Inter-Agencies Marathon Competition, a beacon of collaboration between security agencies.

The marathon itself was a grand odyssey, traversing the streets and junctions of Adamawa State.

The victors emerged with trooper Yakubu Hyella Paul of the Nigeria Army claiming the first position, trooper Solomon Yakubu securing the second, and ASP Donald Salu of the Federal Fire Service clinching the third.

Each winning participant at the 23 Armoured Brigade Yola Inter-Agency 25-kilometer Marathon Competition earned their well-deserved rewards, a testament to their mettle and endurance.

As the sun set on the marathon, a spirited volleyball match ensued, pitting the Nigerian Army against the Nigerian Air Force. Victory danced in the army’s favour, a celebration of unity and triumph.

The teams departed, pockets heavier with N50,000, a fitting crescendo to a day steeped in unity and athletic prowess.
