Revealed: Ribadu’s Presidential Ambition was Sold to Jonathan for N16Billion by the ACN
In that election, majority of the so-called ACN states voted massively for President Jonathan, while ignoring their own candidate, Malam Nuhu Ribadu.
The embattled chairman of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Kaduna State, Alhaji Mohammed Musa Soba, has described the national leadership of the party as a “rogue leadership,”.
He accused them of selling the candidature of its presidential candidate in the 2011 election to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for one hundred million dollars.
“A rogue leadership is one that collected one hundred million dollars (N16 Billion) from the PDP, delivered the south-west to the PDP in the 2011 presidential election and shamelessly turn round to accuse the PDP of corruption and stealing of public funds,” said Alhaji Soba, whose removal was announced by the ACN spokesperson, Lai Mohammed.
Firing hard at the national leadership of ACN in a statement, Alhaji Soba claimed that he is being witch-hunted for asking them to explain why they sold Ribadu’s bid for the presidency.
He described ACN as lacking a Board of Trustees and visionary leaders and always abusing its own constitution while shamelessly labeling others as clueless and dictatorial.
“We challenge Lai Mohammed and the national secretary of the party, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, to tell the whole world why state chapters like Enugu, Ebonyi, Abia, Cross Rivers, Bayelsa, AkwaIbom, Nassarawa, Plateau, Bauchi, Gombe, Yobe, Borno, Adamawa, Taraba and Kaduna states are all facing national leadership induced crises,” he said.
Alhaji Soba insists that he is still legally the chairman of the Kaduna ACN, stating, “Their own decision on the Kaduna leadership crisis is a nullity, void ab initio, and an exercise in futility for its violent conflict with the party’s constitution, NEC’s resolution of May 11, 2011 and all the civilised norms of a democratic practice.”
