A gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Dr Umar Ardo, has raised fears over the way looters of public treasury are using their ill-gotten wealth to buy the conscience of the people.
Ardo, who was reacting to the huge expenditure allegedly incurred by politicians in the state ahead of the October 11 governorship by-election, decried the manner in which former EFCC boss, Nuhu Ribadu and former executive secretary of UBEC, Ahmed Modibbo, on Saturday, made some financial and vehicles donations to the party.
Both Ribadu and Modibbo are eyeing the sole PDP governorship ticket.
Ardo alleged that as former public office holders, both men must have corruptly enriched themselves to be able to make such huge donations of over 50 vehicles and over N20 million respectively in one fell swoop.
“The October 11 governorship election in Adamawa State has opened the large purse of public treasury looters who are aspiring to govern the state”.
The aspirant queried how politicians whose entire lives had been in the public sector domain, could now dole out such unbelievably large sums of money and materials to the PDP.
