Ex EFCC Boss, Ribadu Withdraws From Adamawa Governorship Race


How Nigeria Can Fight Corruption Through Security Votes - Ribadu

A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, has withdrawn from the race to emerge as the governorship candidate of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State, Naija News understands.

Mr Ribadu in a statement by his campaign office  in Yola cited the choice of indirect mode of election instead of the direct mode agreed by many party leaders in the state as his reason for withdrawing.

The Director General of the Ribadu campaign organization, Salihu Bawuro also explained further that the people are sad about the party’s decision in the state   to adopt indirect primaries at the last minute.

He said that:

“We were opposed to indirect primaries ab initio because we believe the process that brought those expected to participate in the process was fundamentally flawed. When the party congresses were held in May, we cried that no elections were held in Adamawa and the officials were only handpicked by those who hijacked the process. This was not addressed. We are therefore under no illusion of a fair contest in the hands of those so-called party officials.”
