16 February 2016, 17:05

Abuja - Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu has gone into hiding following plots by governors of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other party chieftains to make him Chairman of the party, reports Premium Times.

The party’s national caucus is currently meeting in Abuja, after which the National Executive Committee (NEC) will meet to appoint a new Chairman of the party.

Ribadu had initially agreed to accept the job but supposedly had a change of heart as a result of a perceived lack of seriousness on the part of the party's leadership.

Some of the party’s governors visited Ribadu in a last-minute effort to get him to change his position’but he is said to be against taking up the job.

Party chieftains led by a a governor from the South-south region have been trying to reach out to Ribadu since Monday night but all to no avail.

It was learnt that at least four governors of the party and other chieftains are currently waiting at the Bayelsa Governor’s Lodge in the Maitama area of Abuja, scrambling to reach Ribadu.

Ribadu has allegedly switched off all his mobile phones.

At his residence in the Asokoro District of Abuja, security guards denied people entry into the premises, saying the former EFCC Chairman was not at home, and that his whereabouts was unknown.

Ribadu’s spokesperson, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, said he had not been able to reach Ribadu in the past two days.
