Former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, has returned to the All Progressives Congress.



    The former EFCC boss was one of the founding leaders of the ruling party but defected to the PDP in 2014, few months to the 2015 general elections.

    In a statement posted on his social media handle, the former EFCC boss said that he had “finally heeded the calls on me to return to the All Progressives Congress, a party of which I was a founding member”.

    “I re-registered as a member of the APC on Thursday 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,” the former ACN presidential aspirant said.

    Ribadu stated further that his decision to return to the APC was informed 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.”
