The pioneer Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, who last week defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has written a letter to the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Adamu Mu’azu, requesting a waiver.
In a letter dated August 16, Ribadu said his application for a waiver would enable him to contest for elective office.
The letter reads: “I wish to humbly write to apply for a clearance/waiver to enable me aspire for position on the platform of this great party.
“As a fresher in the party, I have duly obtained my membership, paid required dues. I hereby tender photocopies, including my voter’s card for your necessary action”.
In a separate letter of August 1, Ribadu applied to join the PDP.
The letter reads:” I wish to humbly apply for membership of this great party- Peoples Democratic Party. I am from Bako Ward and a registered voter in this Ward.
“I shall adhere to the party’s constitution, promptly pay my fees and actively participate in party activities. I shall also take all necessary steps to propagate and execute the aims and objectives of the great party, PDP. I hope my application will be accepted”.
The former All Progressives Congress chieftain was subsequently given registration number 1933795.
Meanwhile, the deadline for collection of PDP’s governorship nomination form is tomorrow.
