Registering normally at the ward office of the APC in Garkida, Adamawa state yesterday Chief Bello said he is happy to return to the APC family.
His registration brings to an end speculation of his defection.
His return to the APC was welcomed last night in Abuja by many stalwarts and Adamawa APC stakeholders including the National Chairman of the caretaker committee, His Excellency Governor Mai Mala Buni, Comrade Salihu Mustapha, Alhaji Saidu Naira, Alhaji Alhassan Abba among others.
Our sources say his return to the APC is indicative of the fact that the APC in Adamawa State is strategizing towards the Governorship elections of 2023.
