C-O-N-F-U-S-I-O-N!!! ADAMAWA: PDP Chieftains Rejects Mallam Ribadu For

**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 deliberating 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.
