Farauta: Adamawa Gov-elect Speaks On Risks Of Engaging In Politics, Leaving Academics
Prof. Kaletapwa Farauta, the deputy governor-elect of Adamawa State, said that it was perilous for her to give up her position as vice chancellor of Adamawa State University in order to support Governor Ahmadu Fintiri in the state’s just ended governorship election.
In an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, Farauta claimed that the residents of her village and the governor encouraged her to step down as vice chancellor and run for the deputy governorship.

She said: “Life is about taking risks and whatever you do in life amounts to taking risks. 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,” she added.
