Why my re­turn to APC can’t be stopped — Gundiri

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

A found­ing mem­ber of the APC, Engr. Markus Gundiri, said yes­ter­day that his re­turn to the party could not be stopped be­cause he joined from the “for­ma­tive stage”.

The for­mer gover­nor­ship can­di­date of the So­cial Demo­cratic Party (SDP) in Adamawa State, who re­turned to the APC along with a for­mer chairman of the EFCC, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, last week, spoke in Abuja dur­ing an in­ter­view with jour­nal­ists.

“Those peo­ple whom they said are the top shots, who do not want us to come back, are the peo­ple who were not in the party at the for­ma­tive stage. Those peo­ple whom they said came to com­plain that we should not be in the party were not there when we started the party.

On the re­port that for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Atiku Abubakar and Gover­nor Umaru Jib­rilla Bin­dow of Adamawa State had been al­leged to have op­posed his re­turn, he said, “I do not know if they were the peo­ple at the national sec­re­tar­iat of the APC. But, what I’m saying is who­ever does not want Markus Gundiri in the APC is mak­ing a big mis­take be­cause that is my party,” he said.
