Politics Gulak,Tukur,4 Other PDP Aspirants To Boycott Adamawa Primaries If Ribadu Gets Waiver



Dr. Umar Ardo, Dr. Aliyu Idi Hong, Senator Abubakar Girei, Alhaji Awwal Tukur and Alhaji Ahmed Gulak have vowed to boycott the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries election if Nuhu Ribadu is granted waiver to contest the Adamawa Governorship election. DAILY TRUST has this story.

Six of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Adamawa governorship aspirants have resolved to boycott the September 6 primaries and sue the party if it gives waiver to Malam Nuhu Ribadu to run in the primaries.

The aspirants say they suspect Ribadu is being favoured by powerful forces in the presidency and that he may not only be granted waiver but favoured to pick the party’s ticket for the October 11 governorship election.

The six aspirants, who met in Abuja on Tuesday, resolved that since it was becoming glaring that the presidency is bent on supporting Ribadu, who they said had joined the party only recently, that it would be best to register their protests by not participating in the primary and to further challenge the process in court.
