Ribadu: PDP National Working Committee Fails to Consider Waiver
The aspiration of the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, to contest the forthcoming gubernatorial primaries of the Adamawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is already hanging in the balance, as the PDP National Working Committee, NWC, yesterday failed to discuss a waiver for him.
Ribadu who was a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP last week and subsequently picked the party’s nomination form to contest the governorship primaries.
But as a new member to the party, he is required to obtain a waiver from the party’s NWC before he can vie for any position, because the party’s constitution requires a two year membership period for anyone seeking an elective office.
Upon decamping to the PDP, Ribadu applied for a waiver in line with Section 50 of the party’s constitution.
Beside Ribadu, others who require the waiver from the party include former military governor of Lagos State, Brig-Gen. Buba Marwa (rtd); and Marcus Gundiri, who recently returned to the party.
Prior to yesterday’s meeting of the NWC, hopes were high for Ribadu, whom many believe joined the PDP because he was promised the ticket of the party.
It however emerged that the issue of waiver was not discussed at the meeting.
Multiple sources at the meeting confirmed last night that the issue of a waiver was not discussed at the meeting.
