Why I Left APC, by Sheriff


By Wole Ayodele

Acting National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ,Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has explained the rationale for his leaving the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) for PDP.

Fielding questions from journalists at the Jalingo airport on Thursday after a visit to the Taraba state chapter of the party, he disclosed that he left APC due to developments that were not in tandem with his political beliefs and ideology.

Sheriff, who arrived the state on Tuesday night was driven to the airport in the same vehicle with Governor Darius Ishaku and the Senate Deputy Minority Leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as well as Senator Sani Abubakar Danladi and Hon Victor Bala Kona who was re-elected PDP state Chairman at the party’s state congress on Tuesday.

Speaking further, Sheriff noted that he contributed immensely to the growth of APC, stressing that his contributions to the success of the party cannot be over-emphasised.

Expressing optimism that he would emerge as PDP Chairman at the party’s convention slated for Port Harcourt, the former two-term governor of Borno state stated that it is God that crowns leaders but his is to ensure he does everything humanly possible to emerge victorious.
