Abuja - Nuhu Ribadu’s dream of contesting the September 6 Peoples Democratic Party's governorship primary election in Adamawa State suffered a setback on Thursday as one of the leaders of the party and a former Minister of Information, Edwin Clark, called on the leadership of the party not to grant him waiver.
The Ijaw leader said granting Ribadu the waiver to pick up the governorship nomination papers is nothing than a grand plan against President Goodluck Jonathan, the PDP and the innocent people of Nigeria, reports Punch.
He said the PDP would be making the biggest mistake of its life if it granted a waiver to the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to enable him contest the Adamawa State governorship primaries.
Clark said that bringing Ribadu into the PDP would dent the image of the party and also affect its fortune in Adamawa State.
He noted that Ribadu would at the end betray Jonathan.
