Ribadu is God’s answer to the cries of Adamawa people – Governor Ngilari

The Adamawa State Governor, Bala Ngilari has described the emergence of a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in the state as God’s answer to the cries of the people of Adamawa State, who he said have been yearning for good governance in the past 16 years.

Mr. Ngilari, who spoke at a ‘Thank You’ rally held by the party at Jada on Saturday, said Mr. Ribadu’s record as an astute administrator and fighter of corruption place him in good stead as the right man needed by the state at this time.

The governor further stated that the PDP in the state is formidable enough to retain the positions it currently occupies. He said with Mr. Ribadu on the ballot, the party is sure to emerge successful at the polls.

Mr. Ngilari, represented by his deputy governor designate, Sa’ad Tahir, noted that his aspiration for the party’s nomination and his loss in the contest were acts of God.

“As people of God, we know that both Christian and Islamic scriptures have taught us that no one can give you power or take away power from you, other than God. I am therefore free of any malice,” he said.

The governor further reiterated his resolve to ensure total victory for the party in the state, as he admonished all partymen to work for victory.

In his address, Mr. Ribadu thanked the party’s delegates and other stakeholders from Jada and other local governments for entrusting the governorship’s ticket in him. He pledged not to let them down if he eventually succeeds at the general election.

“I am in this for the good of Adamawa State,” he said. “Our aim is to see that the Adamawa takes its rightful place among states of Nigeria. We want to uphold the sanctity of human dignity through provision of essential life tools.”

    Is that one of his campaign promises ? Why should Adamawa vote Boko haram party ?

    • Kamal Kamoru

      Mehn! Mallam, dis tin dey pain u fa! Kai!
      I hope you remember yur comments when Fintiri picked the ticket initially. It had been agreed who ever picked the ticket then will not contest in February. Yet, you and your fellow bitterly naive APC is on this site were jumping up and down and abusing Ribadu!
      Now the smoke has cleared..WHAT DO YOU SEE ABOKI??
      Ka yi hankuri!
      Don’t commit suicide o!

      • Kamal Kamoru

        * ‘bitterly naive APC minions on this site..’

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        But don’t forget to tell the world the process that led to his emergence. Primary done in a strange land, Abuja. While not Adamawa where the previous one done. Just strategy you will say but underground robbery. They should have allowed internal democracy to prevail.

    • [MMXV]

      Bitterness kills o.
      Go and swallow your expired APC tablets.
      It will lead to a painless death..

    Nuhu Ribadu will make a good Governor. Just don’t make the fatal mistake of campaigning for GEJ. Just do a kwankwaso

    • Segun Adebayo

      Sorry mallam, Ribadu is a man of honor and integrity. He can’t do a ‘kwankwaso’.
      I hope you realize you comment can be interpreted to mean kwankwaso is treacherous??

    • Awarawa

      By fielding Ribaldu and other notable Nigerians like Murray Bruce, GEJ is positioning his next govt to seriously deal a decisive blow on corruption…

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        Murray Bruce a senatorial aspirant will fight corruption if elected in Nigeria, where are the instruments as a senator? If you don’t know what to type then ignore and move. I also want you to know that state government is not EFCC. EFCC he has instrument at his disposer and a willing president, even though it was selective but he made success of it. If he’s willing but the head not willing, the one that control the instrument. Cases dropped because of President’s unwillingness are Fayose, Fani-Kayode, Stella Oduah, Maduekwe, Lamido’s sons, Ahmadu Ali’s son (subsidy), Tukur’s son (subsidy) and many more.

    His excellency Ngilari said: ” ….as both Christian and Islamic scriptures have taught us that no one can give you power or take away power from you, other than God. I am therefore free of any malice,….”

    But Sir, the Scriptures also said that it is God that gives wealth or take away wealth yet we have thieves and armed robbers who forcefully take people’s wealth and use the same quotes from the scriptures. In the same, people can steal and rob societies of power through rigging and the gun. Can you call power obtained this way “God given”?.

    Please allow people to choose their leaders through free and fair elections and then and only then can you refer to the scriptures. The recently concluded APC convention is such a model. You can endeavor to emulate that.

    • Awarawa

      Bros, by saying APC presidential primary should a model, are you asking that future primaries should also share $7,000.00 per delegate? Just asking…

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        Did the person that share money win the primary? This is just to tell you that the era of money bag politics is gone. It’s now bring the money, I sop and I vote for the right candidate.

    Ribadu will lose that election woefully, Adamawa People are bitter with PDP.
