Opinion Article: Ribadu’s dance of shame


By AZUH AMATUS: Sincerely, I never wanted to comment or dabble into discussions surrounding the recent defection of former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Truth is, I’m not a fan of Ribadu, but hugely applauded his courageous exploits in the past as EFCC boss.
 Besides, I’m also not a card carrying member of both the PDP and APC.
However, I changed my mind after angrily reading the disappointing and inglorious reasons, Ribadu adduced and justified as his main reasons for jumping ship, while reacting through his spokesman, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz.
Even though, Ribadu is a professional in politics, I never expected him to come up with such lame and laughable excuse, which has firmly put him in the mould of typical Nigerian politicians.
