He became the acting Governor of Adamawa State following the impeachment of Admiral Murtala Nyako the former governor of the state, in July 2014, handing later to Bala James Ngilari after serving for three months.
After the collation of the results of the state gubernatorial election on the 9th of March 2019, Fintiri emerged as the winner of the election with the highest number of votes. However, the election was declared inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes was more greater the margin between the winner and his close opponent. In the early hours of Friday, Iri was declared the winner of the by-election in Tr, having secured 376,552 votes to defeat the incumbent Governor Jib,rilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 336,386 votes.
