A prominent South-South elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark has sounded a note of warning to the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against granting former Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu a waiver to contest the Saturday, October 11, 2014 gubernatorial elections in Adamawa state.

According to a report by the Punch, the former Minister of Information asserted that Ribadu will end up betraying President Goodluck Jonathan while granting a press conference at his Abuja residence on Thursday, August 28, 2014.

He said the former EFCC chairman was notorious for raising false alarms against governors elected under the platform of the PDP in the past in his capacity as chairman of the anti-graft commission, adding that Ribadu also spearheaded the impeachment of an unnamed PDP governor in the past.

Clark also accused Ribadu of being an ingrate, saying refused to show gratitude when President Jonathan saved his blushes when he converted his dismissal to retirement as assistant inspector of police.
