Nuhu Ribadu Dumps APC For PDP!

Former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Chairman, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu who was the presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2011 elections has dumped the All Progressives Congress for the Peoples Democratic Party, ending weeks of speculation.
Street Journal gathered that Malam Ribadu was registered as a member of his new party at Bako, Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The national chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu is believed to have been instrumental to the former EFCC boss’ decision to join the PDP. Street Journal’s findings have also revealed that Ribadu might be the PDP’s joker for the Adamawa State governorship bye election to replace Murtala Nyako who was impeached weeks ago.
The Acting Governor of the state, Umaru Finitri, Awaal Tukur, son of the former Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and Brigadier Buba Mohammed Marwa have all indicated interest in replacing Nyako as Governor of Adamawa State.
Malam Ribadu could not be reached on his phone. His twitter handle too has not been active for days.
