Adamawa Guber: PDP Disqualifies Acting Governor Umaru Fintiri

The screening committee setup by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to screen candidates vying for the party primaries in Adamawa state has disqualified the acting governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri.

Saharareporters reports that it could not confirm the official reasons given for Fintiri’s disqualification but a PDP source said it was because he decamped from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress (APC) party and hence did not qualify to be re-admitted into the party until certain conditions are met.

The screening committee, however, gave the green light to former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mallam Nuhu Ribadu as well as others to run in the primaries.
