The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has joined the growing list  of groups and individuals putting pressure on anti-corruption czar, Nuhu Ribadu to return to the ruling party.

The former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC),
is one of the founding leaders of the party, but left for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  before the last general elections.

Ribadu was the PDP candidate for governor in Adamawa State in 2015 but was defeated by Jubrilla Bindow of the APC.

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 progressive nature, we strongly believe 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”.
