Politics Adamawa: Ribadu,Other APC Defectors will never get PDP Ticket



Crisi is brewing in the Adamawa state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as members as currently fighting themselves over whether or not, former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, should be allowed into the party as flag bearer for the forthcoming coming gubernatorial election in the state; The Sun reported.

Some Chieftains of the PDP have vowed that nobody who recently moved from All Progressives Congress (APC) would be allowed to pick the PDP ticket.

One of the PDP chieftains who spoke anonymously said, "As it stands today, Tukur and other chieftains of the party in the state have agreed that we will not allow somebody from APC to come and pick the ticket of our party".

"We are aware that Ribadu has been promised the ticket of the party, but we will not allow that to happen. We will do everything to scuttle this plan. Not only that Ribadu will be a hard sell because the electorate will not accept the possibility of being ruled by another retired military or para military officer, PDP in the state cannot, after labouring so hard to keep the party together, accept imposition of an outsider as our candidate".

Meanwhile, other PDP Chieftains believe Ribadu should be brought in and handed the ticket if the party must reclaim Adamawa.
