Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has become the Presidential Flag bearer of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN at the party's convention today at the Onikan Stadium, Lagos.

Ribadu was declared winner after Attahiru Bafarawa and Saidu Malami withdrew from the race.

Ribadu is expected to slug it out with incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan who emerged yesterday as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP candidate after defeating former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in one of the most humiliating Presidential Primaries in the history of democracy in Nigeria.

Although, Ribadu's candidacy is not yet certain as the ACN is still holding merger talks with the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC led by General Mohammadu Buhari who emerged as the CPC's presidential candidate.
