We want you back now, APC tells Nuhu Ribadu


The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has joined the race of groups and individuals calling on a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, to return to the party.

Mr. Ribadu is one of the founding leaders of the party, but left for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, shortly before the 2015 general elections.

Mr. Ribadu was the PDP candidate for governor in Adamawa State in 2015. He left the APC after the impeachment of former Governor Murtala Nyako by the State House of Assembly in 2014.

Sources close to the anti-corruption Czar said he was ” deeply disappointed by the inability of the APC leadership to save Mr Nyako from impeachment.”

In a letter to Mr. Ribadu, signed by the acting secretary of the APC in Adamawa State, Saidu Naira, the ruling party said it was time for Mr. Ribadu to return to his “home party”.

The letter, dated, June, 22, 2016, reads in part:
“Given your track records and progressives nature, we strongly belief APC is where you belong to.

“We are also mindful of the efforts and contributions you made during the merger without which the merger would have been difficult.

“To this end we reaffirm our request for you to come home to APC and assist and contribute to the success of the APC government both at state and national level”.

Efforts to reach Mr. Ribadu or his spokesperson, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, were unsuccessful.

PREMIUM TIMES however gathered that the request from the APC is coming at a time the former presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria is under pressure from his present party, the PDP, to serve as national chairman to ” reorganise the PDP as it readies itself to reclaim power in 2019″.
