Group asks Ribadu to contest Adamawa governorship under PDP

Nuhu Ribadu

“Ribadu is known internationally as an anti-corruption crusader.”

A youth organization in Adamawa, The Adamawa Concerned Youths for Good Governance, has urged the former Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, to vie for the governorship seat in the state.

Making the call on behalf of other members of the organization in Yola on Thursday, its Chairman, Ibrahim Isa, said the situation in Adamawa required a leader with focus and sense of dedication, to remedy.

“We call on Mallam Nuhu Ribadu to come and join the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and contest for the governorship seat of the state.

“Our call on the former EFCC Chairman to contest in the forthcoming gubernatorial election is for him to salvage the state from total collapse and decay, occasioned by serious maladministration in the last fifteen years.” Isa said.

He said the group had identified “corruption” as the major cause of under-development of the state; as such Mr. Ribadu was the only solution to the menace.

“Ribadu is known internationally as an anti-corruption crusader and so if placed in position of authority, a solution would be found and investors would be at ease investing in Adamawa,” Mr. Isa added.

He therefore argued that with Mr. Ribadu as the state governor, Adamawa was likely to witness a positive transformation.

Mr. Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2011.

    Some people cannot think! How do they think Ribadu would run under the PDP? Haba, some Nigerians, think!

    • Uzoma

      Why not? I’d ask, instead, if he’d consent to run for governor of the backwater state of Adamawa after running for president of Nigeria.

  • Dan Fulani

    I now got the massege. Husaina, you can choose your religion but you can’t choose your tribe. Weather you like it or not your Xcian brothers and sisters down South do not see any difference btw Buhari and one Ishaya Audu. After all they are all Hausas.

    • Okey

      You are an irredeemable liar. Gone are those when we lived in that make-belief. Today, there is no Southerner that does not know why the people of Southern Kaduna share abode with Southerners in Sabontasha (Kaduna), why Southerners and Christian minorities of the North share abodes in Sabon-gari (Kano) or why the people of Tafawa Balewa (Bauchi), Birom (Plateau) Southern Borno are routinely slaughtered. Yes, you need them for 2015 as your “one North” on the condition that none of them dares aspire to be a presidential candidate. If you want us not to see any difference between a Buhari and an Ishaya Audu, you and those like you must be able to live up to the legacies that Prof. Ishaya Audu left behind: Fairness, equality and respect for all Nigerians irrespective of tribe, religion or geography.

        My brother Mr Okay don’t be insultiv. Do you know that there are places in the North where there no Sabon garis and tashas.
        Have you ever cared to note that more Muslims are killed than Xcians in the North?
        Do you know these towns?
        Kuru babba
        , kuru tasha,
        kuru karama,
        Sabon gida,
        Gana karama and Ganan daji,
        Farar kasa
        Rafin acca
        Makera tasha and Makera gari. All these settlements were in Plateau state all the people there were either killed or displaced and their homes destroyed.
        Do you know that no single Muslim is living in Tafawa balewa, Langtang etc.

        • Okey

          “Have you ever cared to note that more Muslims are killed than Xcians in the North?”
          Certainly, the “North” you mean in the above question exist in the Antarctica, not the Northern Nigeria we all know.

  • Okache

    The point is, will the system allows Nigerians to decide?

  • Ishaya Audu, you said: “as with any other information we are confronted with, whether from the pulpit or from the media, it must be examined critically. First you look at the messenger to see what his likely motivations may be”

    You are wrong by starting-out with the SUBJECTIVE.

    You said: “Those who respect Adeboye (and what is there not to respect about him)”

    That DELUSION is the reason why his fans have accused me of being envious of Adeboye.

    I have responded with: You actually think there’s something enviable about Adeboye?
    Consider the following: In 2008, Adeboye gave the following “prediction” as special revelation from God:

    “Internationally, there will be scientific breakthrough this year.”

    We are living in the 21st century; that vague prediction is no special revelation at all, but high probability of the 21st century.



    E.A. Adeboye, Holy Ghost service, Nov. 2008:
    “… if it is me you want to fight, you have won before you start. I have nothing to fight with … I know nobody, I HAVE NO MONEY.”

    LYING Pastors.

    Hear the female mullah. Abandoning hijab does not make Huaasina ISHAYA Audu a Christian she claims. The day she weans herself from her anti-Jonathan paranoia is when sanity returns to her warped mind. She is quickly running herself down, and burning herself out with obsessive, compulsive pro-awusa propaganda, and backing the wrong horse.
