APC primaries not fair, I had to pull out-Ribadu

Nuhu Ribadu, governorship aspirant of the All Progressives
Congress (APC) in Adamawa, has withdrawn from the race.
The development was contained in a statement signed on Sunday
by Salihu Bawuro, director-general of his campaign.
The pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) says the APC in the state did not agree to a
direct primary election demanded by aspirants.
“While we and greater majority of APC family in Adamawa state
supported giving power to the people through direct primaries, the
party decided to adopt indirect primaries at the last minute,” the
statement read.
“We were opposed to indirect primaries ab initio because we
believe the process that brought those expected to participate in
the process was fundamentally flawed.
“When the party congresses were held in May, we cried that no
elections were held in Adamawa and the officials were only
handpicked by those who hijacked the process.
“This was not addressed. We are therefore under no illusion of a
fair contest in the hands of those so-called party officials.”
The campaign organisation said Ribadu will continue to support
President Muhammadu Buhari and will not leave the party.
