ADAMAWA: PDP Chieftains Rejects Mallam Ribadu.
**We can’t trust him for anything – PDP governors.
**He could be playing an APC script whereby he
would return to them after using the PDP to achieve
his aim
The governorship ambition of Mallam Nuhu Ribadu,
former chairman of the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC), is hanging in the
balance following a groundswell of opposition to his
emergence as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),
candidate in the Adamawa State gubernatorial bye-
election.
While the National Working Committee, NWC, are
delibrating his request for a waiver to the two-year
membership requirement for party members to seek
office is receiving a cold attention, Party leaders has
declared that Ribadu cannot be trusted and
described him as a ‘spy’ from APC.
The development was the reason, President
Goodluck Jonathan summoned a select caucus of
leaders of the party to a crucial meeting where the
issue of waiver for Ribadu and others was billed to
be discussed.
The PDP governors met at the residence of one of
them in Abuja, where the issue of Adamawa
governorship election was discussed and a
resolution passed that Ribadu should be stopped if
the PDP wanted victory at the October governorship
poll.
The said that they had their “reservations about the
Ribadu question” in the governorship contest in
Adamawa State even as they chided the president’s
PPS (Tukur) for the move.
The Governors declared that, We can’t trust him for
anything. Look at the auditing job given to him
concerning the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation? Do you know the problem that report
caused this government?
“Before Ribadu submitted the report, he had leaked it
to all the embassies in the country. Will it not be
treacherous to have such a man close to the
government he has denounced and condemned in
the past?
“Adamawa is Adamawa but the PDP’s chances in
any election are of essence to us all because, if we
win, the lesser job is for us in Adamawa and the
entire north-east for the PDP.
“So we were amazed to discover that Hassan Tukur
drafted in Ribadu and this is causing problem
especially when the president’s name is being
bandied all around; so we resolved that the
president must be alerted to the dangers of the
move because Ribadu could be playing an APC
script whereby he would return to his party after
using the platform of the PDP to achieve his aim.
“All we are saying is, Ribadu is the least qualified of
all the aspirants; what Hassan Tukur has done is a
great setback for the PDP and that is why we have
to address it squarely.”
Engr Markus Gundiri, who lost in the 2011 primaries
to Former Governor Nyako is the leading PDP
candidate with the biggest local support when
compared with other aspirants
