Why Ribadu Won’t Be Adamawa’s Next Governor

Former Chairman of the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu will not be contesting the Adamawa governorship elections.
According to Premium Times, Ribadu and seven other aspirants have stepped down from the race after a closed door meeting with Senate President, David Mark, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja which reportedly lasted till the early hours of today, Friday, September 5, 2014.

Mark and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party, on whose platform the aspirants were set to contest, intervened to prevent crisis in the party over its choice of candidate for the elections, set to hold October 11.

There are now supposedly only six aspirants in the race for the party’s governorship ticket and they are: Ahmed Gulak, Buba Marwa, Ahmed Modibbo, Umar Ardo, Acting Governor Umaru Fintiri, and Jerry Kumdisi.

The development was reportedly confirmed by the Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the PDP, Joel Madaki who said:

 “Fourteen aspirants contesting for the position earlier has now reduced to six aspirants due to this meeting. It is a very welcome idea. Nobody was forced to step them. Those who stepped down did so voluntarily in order to wait to contest for the position in 2015″.

 Ribadu defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) on August 16, 2014 allegedly for the purpose of contesting the October 11 governorship elections on the platform of the PDP.
