Nuhu Ribadu has returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC), 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 readmitted 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. Once a State Chapter of the party is receptive to anyone’s membership, there is a limit to which the National Headquarters can do, they were told.
Ribadu accepted to return to APC following overtures from the leaders of APC at the national level, ex-Governor Murtala Nyako, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir David Lawal, the state and Local Government chapters of the party. A June 22, 2016 letter by the Adamawa State chapter, signed by the Acting State Secretary, Alh. Saidu Naira invited Ribadu back to the party.
