Fintiri, who emerged the winner on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party made the promise on Friday while speaking with Igbere Tv newsmen in Yola.

He defeated incumbent Governor Muhammadu Bindow of All Progressives Congress and 28 other candidates in the just-concluded supplementary governorship election.

He said, “I will give civil service priority attention and make it more effective.

“As a matter of matter of priority, I will be first to implement it, so that we don’t experience any workers strike,” Fintiri said.

He also assured students that his administration would be committed to resuscitating scholarship scheme, youth empowerment and other programmes to move the state forward.

“We are also going to pay WAEC and NECO fees for students to reduce the burden on parents,” Fintiri said.
