Ali Modu Sheriff reveals why he decamped to APC


Ali Modu Sheriff, former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has given insight into what made him defect to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Sheriff disclosed that he decamped due to the misunderstanding he had with the PDP when he was the national chairman of the party.

He made this disclosure at a meeting of stakeholders of the party in Borno state on Friday.

The former Borno state governor also urged all supporters of APC in the state to shun selfish interests and come together to achieve success for the party, ahead of the 2019 general elections.

According to Sheriff, “I rejoined my great party, the APC, following the misunderstanding we had in PDP when I was the national chairman. But I had to come back home and rejoin the APC, which is the party I helped to form.

“I am joining the APC as an ordinary member, and I want to call on all and sundry to support the leadership of Governor Kashim Shettima and the APC in the state.”

Sheriff, who recently defected to the APC in Borno, was received by the Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima.
