APC directs Ali Modu Sheriff to register for party at his ward

APC leaders

"We are happy to welcome new members to our party, but membership cards are not issued at the Party National Secretariat", the statement read in part.

A top official of the APC confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that Mr Sheriff will be visiting the National Secretariat of the party by 12 noon to formally announce his return.

Ali Modu Sheriff Thirty-four State Chairmen of the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday, formally defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

But a member of the Borno State Executive Council who spoke in confidence said they were aware Sheriff would join the party.

Mr. Odigie-Oyegun, who received the defectors in company of governors of Kaduna, Kano and Kogi states and the Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF) Boss Mustapha, described the development as the first in the history of the party.

"We have read news on the Social Media yesterday evening and in some National dailies this morning, that the former Governor of our State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff will be received by our National Chairman today at the Headquarters of our great Party".

Receiving the defectors at the PDP Secretariat in Yenagoa, the state Governor Seriake Dickson said their decision to rejoin their former political family was a welcome development.

Kyle Lowry had 24 points on 9 of 15 shooting for the Raptors , who outscored the Wizards 29-14 in the final period. The North won this war, and the Wizards were bounced a round earlier than they were the previous year.

Sheriff was expected to be accepted into the party on Thursday alongside the PDP's 2015 gubernatorial candidate in Borno state, Gambo Lawan, who said the PDP has been hijacked by some people.

"Yes, we have moved to the APC; I and former Governor Sheriff have left the PDP for the APC and there are reasons".

You have renounced your membership of the PDP, now you are free to go to your ears where registration is going on and participate. We hope this will save him from himself and also from the unguarded, infantile assaults on the psyche of good-meaning Edo people.

"What would happen tomorrow in Abuja is a mark of respect for Sheriff but I want to assure you that he had done all the processes of defection from his ward in Ngala town in Central Borno". Therefore, you who have come today (yesterday) and those who form the party now have the same status.

Also, the Special Adviser to the Governor, Chief Wilson said the PDP was working hard to mop up the remnants of the remaining opposition in the state back to the PDP.

"We ask for only one thing, the enabling environment and equal participation which you had graciously approved, ´´ Uzodinma said".

´´It is our luck that we are taking the better part of PDP, ´´ he said, adding with the new entrance, APC was sure of victory in 2019 general elections.
