Nuhu-Ribadu BellaNaija

Yola (NAN) – The All Progressives Congress (APC), said on Sunday in Yola that the defection of Mallam Nuhu Ribadu to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not affect the fortunes of the party in Adamawa.

APC Secretary in Adamawa, Alhaji Abdullahi Bakari, who stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said the defection would not affect the party’s chances in the Oct.11 governorship bye-election.

Ribadu, former chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was also the presidential candidate of defunct Action Congress of Nigeria for the 2011 Presidential Election.

“We are not happy that Ribadu has left us, but one thing that is clear now is that his movement has created more problems for PDP in the state.

“The party in Adamawa is healthy and vibrant,  what we are working on now is to have a formidable candidate for the Oct. 11 bye-election to recover our  mandate,” Bakari said.

On its part, The PDP in Adamawa said Ribadu’s defection was a welcome development.

The State Secretary of PDP, Tahir Shehu, told NAN that the doors of the party were open,  not only to Ribadu but also for anyone wishing to join it.

Meanwhile, a visit to Ribadu’s governorship campaign office in Jimeta area of Yola, showed that it is wearing a new look with PDP flags hoisted there. 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
