The PDP has now made the former EFCC chairman, Nuhu Ribadu to be a laughing stock among PDP stakeholders in Adamawa state after the party dumped him in its recent gubernatorial primaries, Gov. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano state has said.
“After he left the APC for the PDP, his new party did not find him worthy of its gubernatorial ticket. I am sure the PDP stakeholders in Adamawa are now laughing at him. We sympathise with him”, Kwankwaso stated.
The governor made the assertion while receiving merit awards from two NGOs namely, APC Kwankwasiyya Amana, Bauchi state chapter and Nigeria 774 Kwankwasiyya Merger: Kwankwaso for President, at the Government House in Kano.
Gov. Kwankwaso however called on the Adamawa electorate to think wisely and vote for the APC candidate in the impending gubernatorial election in the state considering the hardships caused to the state by PDP central government.
He appealed to them to pay back good for good, urging them to dump PDP and vote for APC which is ready to bring about positive and realistic changes in the whole country.
“Anybody who voted for PDP, which within five years could not lead the nation rightly has deceived himself,” lamented the governor, pointing out that APC has come up with a credible candidate in person of Senator Muhammad Jibrila Bindaw who can salvage Adamawa state.
He alleged that the Adamawa state PDP chose a candidate whom most of their supporters see as incompetent, hoping that people in the state should opt for APC, describing it as the best party in Nigeria.
Earlier, chairmen of the NGOs Murtala Abdullahi Dass and Habu Ibrahim Fagge appealed to Kwankwaso to declare for the presidential seat come 2015, assuring him of mobilizing Nigerians to support him.
Meanwhile, Governor Kwankwaso has thanked the state APC stakeholders’ effort in mobilizing people across the nation to support his presidential aspiration come 2015 general election. He made known this while meeting with them at Africa House, Kano Government House on Wednesday.
The governor said that most of the people he met at the APC Northwest rally in Sokoto told him that the message has reached them and they are in support of the aspiration. He, therefore, urged the stakeholders to continue enlightening Nigerians until the APC wins the 2015 general elections. He also reiterated that he’s still consulting on the 2015 presidential contest and he will make his decision known to the general public very soon.
