APC rejects Ali-modu Sheriff, gives reasons

Modu Sheriff Explodes: I Don't Know Boko Haram, How Can I Sponsor

A coalition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Borno state has rejected the moves by former governor of the state Alhaji Modu Sheriff, to return to the party, describing him as ‘Abuja politician.’ 

The group was reacting to media reports that the APC were wooing the former People Democratic Party (PDP) chairman. 

A statement signed Wednesday in Abuja by the chairman and secretary of the group Maina Bashir and Abdullahi Mala respectively, disclosed that they were not aware of any call or move by any person or group wanting Alhaji Sherif back in APC. 

“Firstly, we wish to state that we are not aware of any call or move by any person or group for the return of Sheriff to the APC.   As committed members and stakeholders of the APC in all the 27 Local Governments of Borno State, we would have been aware of any sincere move or effort for the return of Sheriff to our Party, which he defected from at its greatest moment of need – just before the 2015 general elections. 

“Secondly, the Borno state chapter of the APC is currently at peace, with no crisis whatsoever.  This is because of the excellent leadership provided by the Governor of the State, His Excellency Kashim Shettima, which has allowed the party to bloom. We are wary of anyone joining the party, who is likely change this situation for the worse. 

“Thirdly, while we may have no objection to Sheriff or any other person for that matter joining our party, we wish to state clearly that every returnee or potential new member must join from his or her ward.  We do not want ‘Abuja politicians’ with no substance at home in our Party.” 

The group, however declared that if the story was true that Sheriff wanted to return to the APC, “he should go to Ngala, his town and register with his ward chairman. If Sheriff does not have the details of his ward Chairman, we will gladly supply him.”
