Ahead of next Saturday’s governorship election, a Christian group has pledged to mobilise Christians in Adamawa to vote Nuhu Ribadu, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as Governor of Adamawa State.

The group, PDP Christian Supporters Forum for Ribadu, said it based its decision on the anti-corruption history of Nigeria’s former anti-graft chief.

The chairman of the group, Vincent Hassan, who stated his group’s stance at a press conference in Yola on Saturday, urged Nigerians to desist from voting people of their religion, saying the election of Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s next president last Saturday was an indication that competence and history matters to voters.

Mr. Hassan said Mr. Ribadu, a Muslim, is the best among the governorship candidates in the state and based on that the group decided to cue behind him regardless of his religion.

He said his group was sure that a vote for Mr. Ribadu is a vote for rapid socio-economic transformation of the state.

Also in Adamawa, the gubernatorial candidate of People’s Democratic Movement, PDM, Ahmed Modibbo, has stated that his party will produce 25 of the State House of Assembly members based on the track record of the candidates fielded.

He warned the electorates to be wary of desperate gubernatorial candidates canvassing for their votes in the April 11 election.; as such candidates may draw back the wheel of progress if elected.

Mr. Modibbo, who addressed journalists in Yola on Saturday, said the PDM voted for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the just concluded elections as it had no candidate of its own,

He debunked insinuations that he has withdrawn from the race for the APC governorship candidate, saying ,“I never dreamt to step down for anybody because I am the most qualified candidate.”

Mr. Modibbo called on his supporters to come out en masse and vote PDM candidates vying for House of Assembly positions in the state.
