Ribadu dumps APC, joins PDP...eyes Adamawa governorship seat

A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, has dumped the opposition All Progressives Congress [APC] and joined the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP].

 Mr. Ribadu was the presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] in 2011 and until his defection today considered one of the presidential prospects of the APC in the 2015 presidential election.


A member of the executive committee of the PDP in Bako, Mr. Ribadu?s ward in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa state, told Premium Times that the anti-corruption chief has been registered as a member of the party and given a party membership card.



 The source asked not to be named because he was not authorised to disclose the development to journalists. ‎

It was gathered that the PDP leadership led by the party?s national chairman, Adamu Muazu, mounted pressure on Mr. Ribadu to join the party and be its candidate for the October 11 governorship election in Adamawa.

 The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has already released a timetable for an election being organised to replace former Governor Murtala Nyako who was impeached by the State Assembly last month. ‎Already, Acting Governor Umaru Fintiri and Awwal Tukur, a son of former chairman of the PDP, Bamanga Tukur, have picked the notice of ‎ intent form to seek the PDP governorship nomination for the election.

Mr. Ribadu is yet to publicly declare for the PDP although he has not refuted any of the reports linking him to the party.
