Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, a one-time fractional National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is set to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) today.
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State and three-term senator, will return along with PDP’s 2015 gubernatorial candidate in Borno State, Alhaji Gambo Lawan.
“Yes, the governor is aware but you should know that membership of the political party is a personal thing. The governor will not stop Sheriff from joining APC. You are all aware that the governor did not stop him when he wanted to leave the party after the 2015 general elections”, a member of the Borno State Executive Council told a national newspaper.
Mr Sheriff is expected to be received by the national chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and other senior officials of the ruling party.
