Ali Modu Sheriff Decamps To APC

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff will today decamp to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The National Chairman of the APC, Chief Odigie Oyegun will receive Senator Sheriff and his supporters at the ruling party’s national secretariat in Abuja when they arrive any moment from now.

The former Borno state governor was a pioneer chieftain of the APC, having joined the erstwhile main opposition party as member of the defunct All Nigerian People’s Party, (ANPP).

He defected to the PDP in 2014 in controversial circumstances having lost out in the power play at the national secretariat of the APC which accorded the Borno state governor, Ibrahim Shettima the status of leader of the party.

His sojourn in the PDP was also dogged by controversies as he struggled for the position of national chairman with former Kaduna state governor, Senator Ahmed Makarfi until the Supreme Court declared his claim illegal and pronounced Senator Makarfi the authentic PDP National Chairman.
