Business activities and vehicular movements were brought to a standstill momentarily Friday in parts of Yola, Adamawa State, as a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, declared his intention to contest the Adamawa Governorship Bye Election.
A mammoth crowd besieged Mr. Ribadu’s convoy from the Yola international airport to his campaign office, causing a traffic gridlock along the busy Galadima Aminu Way down the PDP state secretariat.
Mr. Ribadu was escorted to the party secretariat by PDP executives and chieftains from his ward, local government as well as others party chieftains from the 21 local government areas of the state.
Some of the party chieftains present at the occasion include former state lawmakers, led by former speaker, Abubakar Abdullahi, former local government chairmen, ex-councillors and senior political associate of the immediate past governor, Murtala Nyako, who have pitched tent with Ribadu.
While declaring Nuhu Ribadu said he was in the race to bring change to Adamawa State.
