Former Political Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan and governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the October “governorship by-election in Adamawa State, Ahmed Gulak, has expressed doubt over some aspirants membership of the party. He said such aspirants have not fulfilled the party’s two years constitutional provision for them to be granted waiver as members.
He specifically said he was not aware that Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa rtd, an aspirant in the PDP, has met the waiver criteria as he joined PDP from the All Progressives Congress (APC). Former gubernatorial candidate. Marcus Gundiri, also joined the PDP the same time Marwa did.
Gulak who said this at the PDP national secretariat after picking the expression of interest and nomination forms on Friday, added that the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu, was welcomed to join the PDP provided he is ready to eat his vomit over negative comments he made against the party.
He said President Jonathan, was aware of his ambition, as he had informed him before picking his forms.
Ahead of the election PDP has fixed its ward congress for September 1.
