Ali Modu Sheriff
President Muhammadu Buhari and a former governor of Borno state, Ali-Modu Sheriff, are currently meeting behind closed doors at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja. Sherrif is also an ex-PDP caretaker committee chairman.
Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has said he left the Peoples Democratic Party due to the misunderstanding he had when he was national chairman of the party. The former Borno governor called on members of the APC to work in unity.
Although some of Ali Modu Sheriff's allies including Senator Uzodinma were welcomed into the ruling party at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, April 26, Sherrif was advised to register at the ward level in Borno.
A statement sent to Legit.ng by the national publicity secretary of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, stated that whilst the party was happy to receive new members, membership cards are not issued at the national secretariat.
A former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is set to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) alongside his supporters. Sheriff was a factional chairman of PDP.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, March 12, 2018, questioned the former governor of Borno state and ex-chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for hours over an undisclosed issue.
