Former military administrator of Lagos, Buba Marwa, has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Marwa moved to the ruling party with thousands of his supporters one week after his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This was disclosed via a statement released on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, by his media aide, Bello Zubairu.

The statement reads:

“The decision to return to the APC was jointly reached at a well attended meeting today (Wednesday) between Marwa and his supporters under the aegis of ‘The Marwa Organization.”

“Marwa told his supporters that, “All efforts to seek redress through the appropriate channels were to no avail, thus leaving thousands of you, TMO members, without a party. I therefore urge you all to forgo your grievances and let bygones be bygones because with President Muhammadu Buhari in the saddle, such impunity won’t happen again.”

Marwa had left the APC in 2014 alleging that the party had meted out a series of injustices to him and had also been hijacked by then Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako.
