Nuhu Ribadu has indicated his interest in participating in the rescheduled primary election of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Adamawa State, hours after he withdrew from the race.
The Director-General, Ribadu campaign organisation, Alhaji Salihu Bawuro, made the announcement at a news conference in Yola on Monday.
The state APC governorship primary is rescheduled for Thursday.
Ribadu withdrew from the primary election on Sunday evening, just as the exercise was about to start but the exercise was cancelled and rescheduled.
Bawuro said the Ribadu campaign organisation was satisfied with the decision taken by the party’s national headquarters on the cancellation and rescheduling of the governorship primary in the state.
“Now that the national headquarters had intervened to correct the abnormalities surrounding the Sunday’s unsuccessful primary, Malam Nuhu Ribadu will be in full contest now that it is the direct primary,” Bawuro said.
He said that the organisation was well prepared to participate in the election, adding that it would do everything possible to ensure free and fair primary.
