Factional Chairman of PDP is set to move to APC but it does not seem he’ll be welcomed.
Following the news on the planned defection of the former factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to APC, the All Progressive Congress has reacted to this news. The response seems to sound like a shade. He reportedly plans to join APC at the National Secretariat, Abuja.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi released a statement on thursday evening, he wrote, “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.”
Ex-media aide to the former Nigerian President, Reno Omokri, had earlier mentioned that Sheriff’s planned defection to the APC was to avoid being added to the looters’ list. He also said the factional chairman of PDP is no more needed at the party. He also said, “I congratulate former unwanted factional chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff, on his return to his natural habitat, APC. Sheriff is wise. With allegations against him and a soon to be released looters list round the corner, he has carried the broom so his problems will passover!
