Former Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu who has been challenging the governorship ticket of the party, says he has rested his case, Njenje Media News reports.
Nuhu Ribadu, who lost the governorship primary of the party to Senator Aishatu Ahmed Binani had challenged the primary, following which the Federal High Court annulled it and declared that the party had no governorship candidate for the 2023 election in Adamawa State.
The Court of Appeal, however, restored the initial winner last month, following which Ribadu said he would go to the Supreme Court.
However, Ribadu, in a letter, has said he would let the matter rest.
In the letter obtained by DAILY POST on Tuesday evening, Ribadu said he had decided to forego his interest for the larger good of the party.
Ribadu reiterated that he decided to take the difficult decision in the interest of the party, and urged all his supporters to support Binani’s gubernatorial ambition.
“I have been in consultation with my family, political associates and party leaders at different levels on the next step. In addition, I have reflected deeply on my mission in politics, especially my aspiration for the Adamawa governorship.
“My motivation in aspiring to govern the state is for an opportunity to serve my dear state as my contribution to a more purposeful future for the state,” Ribadu stated.
He said he had approached the court in the first place because he found no internal redress for his complaints but that after the Appeal Court reinstated the candidate declared winner of the primary, “we disagree with the judgment but I have no intention of dragging this any further.”
