The former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] Nuhu Ribadu, has dumped the All Progressives Congress [APC] and joined the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP].
Mr. Ribadu who was the presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] in 2011 and until his defection today was considered one of the presidential prospects of the APC in the 2015 presidential election.
A member of the executive committee of the PDP in Bako, Mr. Ribadu’s ward in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa state, told PREMIUM TIMES that the anti-corruption chief has been registered as a member of the party and given a party membership card.
The source asked not to be named because he was not authorised to disclose the development to journalists.
An earlier report had detailed how the PDP leadership led by the party’s national chairman, Adamu Muazu, mounted pressure on Mr. Ribadu to join the party and be its candidate for the October 11 governorship election in Adamawa.
