Former EFCC Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu Deserts PDP, Return Back To APC

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Nuhu Ribadu has returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC) amidst a level of resistance from some powerful figures in Adamawa State where he hails from.

The former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman got a letter from Adamawa State chapter of the party seeking his return to the party.

He is going to be re-admitted with a former governorship candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the state, Mr. Marcus Gundiri, with their supporters.

But former Vice President,  Atiku Abubakar, Adamawa State Governor Jibrilla Bindow, and two others have protested to National Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun and the National Working Committee (NWC) against Ribadu’s return.

The APC leadership told Atiku, the governor and others that the constitution allows an individual to join a party of his choice.

It was also gathered that President Muhammadu Buhari’s supporters endorsed the return of Ribadu. Ribadu was earlier this year nominated to contest for the chairmanship of the PDP during which he allegedly went into hiding.
