Adamawa: Ribadu Concedes Defeat Early


The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has conceded defeat halfway into the collation of results of the governorship polls in the state.

Although results of only 12 out of the 21 Local Government Areas of Adamawa State had been announced by the Inependent National Electoral Commission (INEC), a statement issued by Ribadu’s spokesman, Malam AbdulAziz Ahmad said he had accepted the outcome of the election in good faith.

“I came into this race with lofty dreams and clear vision for our dear state, but the voice of the majority has not given me this chance. I take this in good faith.

“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the winner and pray that at the end of it all our dear state will witness the needed progress and development it so much desires,” Ribadu said.

Ribadu also lauded the support he got from President Goodluck Jonathan, leaders of the PDP and the people of Adamawa in general.
