Ribadu drops suit against Adamawa APC Gov candidate Binani

By Our Correspondent

Leading All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Adamawa State, Nuhu Ribadu, has withdrawn his suit challenging the party’s ticket won by Senator Aishatu Dahiru (Binani).

Ribadu said he would not approach the Supreme Court.

His withdrawal from the suit warmed the hearts of many stakeholders in the party.

Ribadu said that although he disagreed with the Appeal Court, which reinstated Binani, he had resolved to work towards the victory of the party.

The NewsZenith reports that Ribadu had gone to the Federal High Court to challenge the APC governorship primary of May, which produced Binani as the winner.

The High Court in its judgement annulled the primary and declared that the APC had no governorship candidate, a judgment which displeased every party to the case, including Ribadu.

Ribadu, Binani and APC went to the Court of Appeal, which last month returned Binani as the truly elected APC governorship candidate for Adamawa State.

Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, had earlier announced his intention to go to the Supreme Court.

But in a statement, on Wednesday, Ribadu announced his new decision to let the matter rest.

“We don’t agree with the Appeal Court judgement but I have no intention of dragging this any further.

“As a true party man, I call on my supporters not to despair but to remain faithful to our party.

“We should not let any setback affect our enthusiasm and support for our great party.
“I call on all my supporters to support all our candidates,” Ribadu said.
