Ex PDP chairman meets Osinbajo

Ali Modu Sheriff

Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff on Thursday, September 21, 2017, held a closed door meeting with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

According to Punch, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Ouyegun was also present at the meeting.
This is coming after the Borno state chapter of the APC refused to accept Sheriff as a member of the party.
The chairman of the APC in Borno, Maina Bashir said “The crux of the story is that some unknown and unidentified members of our great Party seek the return of Sheriff, who until recently was the factional chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“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.

“Finally, if the speculation is true that Sheriff has indeed eaten the humble pie and with his tail between his legs, wants to return to the APC, he should go to his Ngala, his town and register with his ward chairman. If Sheriff does not have the details Ward Chairman, we will gladly supply him.”
On Wednesday, July 12, 2017, Ali Modu Sheriff was sacked as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the Supreme Court.
