The former Chairman of the Economic and Finacial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, has spoken on the report making round about his plan to join the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
There were speculations that Ribadu’s political structure dumped the All Progressives Congress for PDP and declared support for the governor of Adamawa State, Umaru Fintiri.
The leader of the group, Mustapha Ribadu, while speaking with newsmen in Yola, noted that there is no truth in the report.
“The news reached us at a time we were at Song Local Government for a parley with the APC Chairman of the Local Government, Mr Hassan Dabutor. During the meeting, all our supporters maintained an unflinching loyalty to President Buhari’s administration and to our great party, APC.”
“Membership of our movement has been growing from strength to strength while our structures across the 21 local governments of the state are intact”
Mr Ribadu further stated that the defectors received by Governor Fintiri were “two of our former members who had long left us before the 2019 election, in the company of mercenaries they procured”
Nuhu Ribadu also took to his Twitter account to debunk the news, he said, “So because a few irrelevant people went to scam someone by namedropping another person then that get spinned as “Ribadu moves” or decamps.”
“I couldn’t believe desperation can lead to scripting of such a poor propaganda twist. I’m going nowhere. Please disregard.
