Senate: Ribadu steps down for Dankwambo

The senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Gombe North senatorial district, Mohammed Usman Ribadu, has withdrew from the contest and handed over the ticket to Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo.

Addressing a rally on Thursday to welcome Dankwambo back to Gombe after the party’s presidential primary election in Port Hacourt, Ribadu said he is stepping down to allow Dankwambo who he said is more qualified to represent Gombe North at the Senate.

According to him, Dankwambo deserves to contest for the Senate because of his achievements in the last seven years as governor of the state.

Daily Trust had reported that Dankwambo has picked Ribadu to contest for the seat, as his next plan in the event that he lost the presidential primaries.

The governor scored 111 votes to finished 5th in the primaries held at Port Harcourt, Rivers state last Sunday.
