Abuja - Some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are seriously begging the pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, to rescue the former ruling party from total collapse, reports Leadership.
This call became imperative following the endless leadership tussle between the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the PDP and the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee.
Ribadu, who was a founding member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), defected to the PDP in 2014 and contested the Adamawa state governorship election under the PDP platform but lost.
Ribadu according to News 24 was initially tipped to replace the former National Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu'azu.
He, however, rejected the offer in the last minute as a result of a perceived lack of seriousness on the part of the party's leadership.

According to reports, ahead of the Port Harcourt convention of the party slated for August 17, some party chieftains are rooting for Ribadu to take over the helms of leadership of the party.
The choice of Ribadu was predicated on the criteria set for the kind of leadership the party would want to have in order to revamp itself ahead of the 2019 general elections.
