I didn’t Attack Amaechi, Kwankwaso, APC –RibaduFeatured, Latest News Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
The 2011 presidential candidate of defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (A C N) now All Progressives Congress (APC) Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has denied reports quoting him attacking Gov. Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers and Kano state governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.
The former EFCC boss also denied attacking All Progressives Congress (APC), the party in which he dumped recently to join the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in which he is seeking gubernatorial ticket of the party in the forthcoming Adamawa governorship election.
In a statement posted on his Facebook account, Ribadu blamed “mischievous characters” for fabricating the story saying he’ll not embark on a needless animosity with his friends, irrespective of political, religious, regional and ethnic affiliations.”
His words: “Let me quickly make it known that I did not issue a statement disparaging APC and its members, including Governors Amaechi, Kwankwaso… These were clearly fabricated, expected backlash, by mischievous characters interested in misleading the public and drawing a picture of non-existent feuds between me and my good friends.”
Ribadu also warned that his “defection shouldn’t be seen as an initiation of political antagonism.”
“Kindly disregard any statement said to be by me attacking the personality of any politician since my defection. I’ll never allow myself to be drawn into such disrespectful exchange.” He assured.
