Nuhu Ribadu Gets Support From Christian Group In Adamawa
Endorsements and mobilization has started again as Nigerians are set for next Saturday's governorship and state house assembly elections. One guber candidate who has gotten some kind of support is the PDP candidate in Adamawa state, Nuhu Ribadu.
A Christian group, PDP Christian Supporters Forum, has pledged to mobilise Christians in Adamawa to vote the former EFCC boss in the forthcoming election.
The group said it based its decision on the anti-corruption history of Nigeria's former anti-graft chief.
The chairman of the group, Vincent Hassan, who stated his group's stance at a press conference in Yola on Saturday, urged Nigerians to desist from voting people of their religion, saying the election of Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria's next president last Saturday was an indication that competence and history matters to voters.
He said his group was sure that a vote for Mr. Ribadu is a vote for rapid socio-economic transformation of the state.
