Ribadu remains a friend, says Tinubu
National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday described Former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chair Nuhu Ribadu as “a friend and brother.”
Ribadu, the 2011 election Presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (AC N), one of the major parties that fused together to form the APC, last week defected to the PDP.
He is seeking the PDP ticket to contest election as governor of Adamawa State. The by-election is slated for October 11.
The Adamawa seat came up for by-election following the impeachment of Governor Murtala Nyako of APC, ostensibly with the backing of the Presidency.
Tinubu, in his first reaction to the defection, twitted yesterday: “Ribadu remains a friend & brother. He is mature. He remains one who believes in liberty, justice and service. I wish him LUCK with GOODLUCK.”
