Politics THE QUESTION: Has PDP Jilted Ribadu? | Cable


Social Member
There is muted giggle in the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the failure of Malam Nuhu Ribadu to get the governorship ticket of his new party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the October 11 by-election. His defection from APC and subsequent declaration to run for governorship all appeared to be a well-scripted play to make him governor.

But with over a dozen aspirants jostling for the party’s ticket, it was obvious to everyone that Ribadu was not going to have an easy ride. Not only were the aspirants formidable, they had also openly spoken about resisting the imposition of Ribadu on the party. Suddenly, what looked like a choreographed cake walk for Ribadu became complicated.

There was a way out, it seemed. There would be two governorship elections, after all. The first one ─ a by-election ─ would produce the replacement for the impeached governor, Vice Admiral Murtala Nyako, and serve out his term till May 29, 2015. The second one, to be held in February 2015, would then take over and serve for four years.
