The ex- chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu, has been called upon by the former ruling People’s Democratic Party to intervene in the present problem bedeviling the party in order to avoid total breakdown.

This call was as a result of the continued power tussle between the embattled ex-Chairman of the party Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the PDP and the Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee.

Some members of the party have urged Ribadu to take over the helms of leadership of the party before the August 17 convention.

According to a senior party member who was quoted in a paper said,” “Though the party has indicated that the next chairman will emerge from the southern part of the country, some of us actually feel that for us now, it should be about the individual and in fact we need a strong voice from the north that is well respected to redeem the much-battered PDP image in the north.

“Yes, Ribadu actually disappointed some of us when he was approached to take over the party in February. He was like already taking up the post before he had a change of mind which created a serious crisis for us since we had fixed the NEC meeting at the time. This was how we ended up with Sheriff.

“But somehow, some critical stakeholders of the party feel we still need someone with the carriage and respect in the mould of Ribadu to lead us out of the woods. And the important thing is that both Makarfi and Sheriff are okay with the man. So, the issue is being iron out now. We are reaching out to him.”
