Youth Stone Ribadu's Convoy In Zamfara by Nobody: 5:53am On Mar 21, 2011
ACTION Congress of Nigeria (ACN) presidential candidate, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, escaped being lynched in Zamfara

on Saturday when furious youths barricaded and stoned his motorcade at the palace of the Emir of Gusau.

Eyewitnesses told the Nigerian Tribune that it took the intervention of the police and other security personnel to disperse the crowd before Mallam Ribadu could sneak into the palace.

Investigation by the Nigerian Tribune revealed that the party was enmeshed in crisis, following the replacement of its governorship standard-bearer, Alhaji Sarki Surajo, with Alhaji Bala Muhammad Dansadau.

The youth, who stormed the emir’s palace, were angry because of the way the state leadership of the party replaced their candidate and they were insisting that their presidential candidate Mallam Ribadu must come along with their candidate.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen, the embattled governorship candidate of the ACN in Zamfara State, Alhaji Surajo, maintained that he was still the standard-bearer of the party in the state.

According to him, “we have a pending court case in the Federal High Court until the court rules otherwise.

“So what happened today (Saturday) was a clear contempt of the court. Nobody has the right to give any flag to anybody,” Surajo declared.

Meanwhile, Mallam Ribadu has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of being responsible for the recent political crisis bedevilling the country.

“The party (PDP) in its quest for power is gradually planting the seed of discord and heating the polity. It seems today, most Nigerians do not have confidence in the party and government.”

Speaking in Gusau, on Saturday, during a presidential campaign tour, Ribadu took a swipe at the antecedents at the ruling PDP in the last 12 years and concluded that the PDP was the main problem facing Nigeria.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that at least one person was killed while seven others were seriously injured at the weekend when armed political thugs attacked the campaign team of Bauchi State governorship candidate of the ACN, Senator Baba Tela in Giade.

Briefing newsmen on the incident in Bauchi, on Sunday, the ACN deputy governorship candidate, Mallam Ali Wakili and the Media Adviser to Senator Tela, Nasiru Ibrahim Darazo, said, “the thugs burnt down five vehicles in our train and molested people until armed policemen came to our rescue.”

They added that the policemen saved the victims from the assailants and advised them to conclude their campaign rally and leave the town since their security could not be guaranteed, considering the greater number of the thugs compared to the policemen around.

Darazo also said that they had given the Bauchi State government and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which he alleged sponsored the thugs, five days to pay them compensation or a necessary action be taken against them.

Wakili said after they left Giade town on their way to Azare, the thugs blocked the road and burnt down another vehicle, while the policemen had to intervene before they could continue their journey to Azare.

The state Police Commissioner, Mohammed Abdulkadir Indabawa, said “they informed me about the incident and I advised them to report the matter to the Giade police division for necessary action.”

In their separate reactions to the allegations, the publicity secretary of the PDP, Sani Al’amin Moham-med and the Special Adviser to Governor Isa Yuguda on Politics and Mobilisation, Abdulmumini Mohammed Kundak, said the PDP and the state government had no hand in the attack, adding that the government had sponsored a bye law that prohibited the use of weapons during campaigns.

They said that it was mischief for the AC N to blame the PDP and the state government.

I've always said it, the guy is too arrogant! Anyways he is just part of the master game. He is not to allow the alliance with Buhari and he's playing his script well. But he needs to drop that arrogance if not even ambassador to Afghanistan he won't get. All because he headed a commission that had its script written by grandmasters, he's now boasting of being an individual! Ewu!!!

Do you have a low self-esteem? And did you read the post at all, please highlight the part of the write-up that potrayed Ribadu as arrogant. At 50+ he is young, na wa ooo. Wonder when he will be old enough to take on national responsibilities.

Funny. Ribadu head wan carry "abode"
Re: Youth Stone Ribadu's Convoy In Zamfara by foster2009: 8:24pm On Mar 21, 2011
I still cant understand where Ribadu suddenly got the resources to run for presidency as a former police officer. With his comments that openly indicted Tinubu when he was at EFCC, one wonders where conscience and consistency lies in his person. He ran abroad after leaving EFCC, lived like a king there, and now he is back. And Tafa Balogun is crying that his money has been re-embezzled. I see Ribadu as a crooked, arrogant person who was used by Obasanjo again his enemies as president and made his own money big time in the process. Buhari still remains the most honest of the lot. God save Nigeria.
Re: Youth Stone Ribadu's Convoy In Zamfara by EnuguUkwu: 8:25pm On Mar 21, 2011
Ribadu said - i dont mind if politicians use their stolen money to fund my campaigns - yeah, he said so. he is a leaking butt Mallam who can never be trusted.

Re: Youth Stone Ribadu's Convoy In Zamfara by searchcorp(m): 11:09pm On Mar 23, 2011
pls, ask anybody what happened when ribadu came to campaign in akure, one would have thought adedibu was suddenly back from the dead. the police entourage kept on shooting like their guns were starter pistols.
nobody on earth has the power to make me dislike him/her, i dont dislike the man, i am only saying he should better reflect on his life and do something of positive national consequences, then come back to campaign again.
