Nuhu Ribadu withdraws from Adamawa governorship race


Nuhu Ribadu, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has withdrawn from the gubernatorial race in Adamawa State.
Ribadu explained that the APC in the state did not agree to direct primary election demanded by aspirants in the State.
This was contained in a statement signed by Salihu Bawuro, Director-General of his campaign, on Sunday
“We were opposed to indirect primaries ab initio because we believe the process that brought those expected to participate in the process was fundamentally flawed,” he stated .
“When the party congresses were held in May, we cried that no elections were held in Adamawa and the officials were only handpicked by those who hijacked the process.
“This was not addressed. We are therefore under no illusion of a fair contest in the hands of those so-called party officials,” the statement read.
The campaign organisation however stated that Ribadu will continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari and won’t leave the party.
The statement also said that Mallam Nuhu Ribadu will remain in APC, and will continue to support the good works of President Muhammadu Buhari, and his candidature.
