Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, a former caretaker committee Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will rejoin the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) today.
It was gathered that Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State and three term senator, will return along with PDP’s 2015 gubernatorial candidate in Borno State, Alhaji Gambo Lawan.
Daily Trust quoted the APC National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, as confirming that Senator Sheriff would be received formally into the party today.
“The information I heard is that it will be today at 12(pm),” he said.
That the event will take place in Abuja and with no officials of the party or government in Borno state is indicative of the problem that lies ahead.
“The president had also directed the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha who is also from the North East to be part of the event.
“But because of the two important meetings yesterday, the reception for Sheriff and others could not hold but it would definitely take place tomorrow (today),” he said.
