Youths under the aegis of the Adamawa Youth Alliance for Change (AYAC) in Adamawa State have warned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leadership to beware of Malam Nuhu Ribadu, saying he decamped to the PDP to cause chaos.
This followed Ribadu’s defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP.
The group’s president, Mr. Umar lya Gulak, with other leaders, who addressed a news conference in Kaduna Sunday, said: “We are ready to resist any attempt to impose any candidate on us.”
AYAC however vowed to resist the imposition of Malam Ribadu by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but it endorsed Senator Abubakar Halilu Girei of the PDP.
The pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), it was learnt, may have picked the party’s governorship ticket.
It said: “After studying the situation, we have agreed that of all the governorship aspirants, Senator Girei stands out. We are supporting him.
“Following the impeachment of former Governor Murtala Nyako and the resignation of his deputy, James Bala Ngilari, we have monitored the political activities in the state and have taken a stand.
“We have also monitored the political calculation and manipulations of those aspiring to govern the state. We have looked at the pedigree of the aspirants.
“Based on our assessment, we have concluded that Senator Girei is the most experienced and credible.”
