The All Progressive Congress today turned Former factional Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party Alhaji Ali Modu Sherrif back to his ward in Borno State if he is truly interested in joining the APC.
APC’s National Publicity Secretary Bolaji Abdulahi, said in a statement made available to the Nigeria Politics Online that the party is aware of Modu-Sheriffs plans to join the APC, it is however advisable that he first goes to his ward to obtain a membership card before coming to the National headquarters.
”Our attention has been drawn to reports in some sections of the media that the former factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff plans to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC) today at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja,” said Abdulah
He added, “While we are aware of such intentions, we wish to restate our earlier position that anyone who wants to join the Party should do so at the ward level. We are happy to welcome new members to our party, but membership cards are not issued at the Party National Secretariat.”
