Two years after he left the fold of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, yesterday announced his return to the ruling party.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Ribadu said he rejoined the party online on Friday.

“My decision to return to the APC was triggered by my belief that all politics are local. Almost everyone around me, and with whom we started my political journey believed the time had come for us to make sacrifices and make concessions. That is in addition to the unbelievable love that my friends in the APC have showered on me in the past months.

“They demonstrated in words and action that they wanted me back home. The intractable crises in the PDP also made it impossible for one to contribute to the necessary task of building a viable opposition platform for our country.

“I also did a deep and long reassessment of the circumstances that warranted my exit from the APC in the first place. I left the APC in 2014 owing to fundamental disagreements with the ways the chapter of the party in my state was run after it fell into some hands.

“Today I heeded the calls on me to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC), a party of which I was a founding member.

“I re-registered as a member of the APC last night through the party’s online portal. After that, the leadership of the party in my Bako ward of Yola South Local Government Area visited me in my Yola residence to welcome me back to their fold.

“This afternoon, I visited the Yola South secretariat of the party to present myself and submit to the leadership as a loyal party man.

“My decision to return to the APC was triggered by my belief that all politics are local. Almost everyone around me, and with whom we started my political journey believed the time had come for us to make sacrifices and make concessions. That is in addition to the unbelievable love that my friends in the APC have showered on me in the past months,” he said.

Ribadu left APC for the Peoples Democratic Party in 2014.
