Sheriff Gives Reasons For His Defection To APC, Urges Members to Unite, Be Loyal and Cooperate With Their Leaders

By Ahmed Abu, The Nigerian Voice, Maiduguri

The Former PDP National Caretaker Committee Chairman and Borno State Governor, Senator Ali Modu sheriff has finally brokered his silence and gave out reasons for defection from PDP to APC while addressing APC supporters and members (stakeholders) in Maiduguri Borno state weekend.

Sheriff who spoken at a caucus meeting of the APC held at the Government House Maiduguri for the first time in six to seven years said, he was satisfied and fascinated with the honest and quality leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari at the federal or national level that was why he defected to APC.

He added that he was also satisfied with the leadership style and performance of his successor, Governor Kashim Shettima at the state level as well as impressed with the records of positive and physical achievements of his successor who added value to lives and physical development of the state from where he stopped in 2011.

The former governor further said that another reason why he joined the APC was the fact that he wants to join the winning and performing teams at the state and federal levels to contribute his quota to move the state and country forward – socio economically and politically.

Sheriff had earlier appealed to all the supporters and members of the APC to be united, cooperate with one another and forgive each other or forget the past and fuse heads together to forge ahead as one people, one party, one state and one country.

He added that as far as his was concerned, he has forgiven anybody that had offended him, particularly those who hypocritically created the feud within him and Shettima, pointing out that, nemesis has even began to catch up with them in the past three months when their atrocities and gossips or blackmails have started exposing them.

The Borno political heavy weight said he bears no grudge any more against anybody and wants all and sundry to come together and move the party as well as the state forward, stressing that, with the situation or tension on ground, there was no need for large number of aspirants for the governorship election in the state .

He urged all those interested in the governorship election to streamline their number and allow only a few number that could peaceful go for primaries and if possible, to even have a consensus candidate which will be much better for the state and party.

Sheriff noted that he has been the shaker and mover of the state politics and have been behind the successive elections of the past state governors from Late Maka Kachallah to date which is a public knowledge, noting that, it will not be out of place if he will still be behind the next governor to take over power from Kashim Shettima.

He expressed his willingness or readiness to support anybody that the party will come up with as the 2019 APC gubernatorial candidate for the 2019 governorship election, pointing out that, his doors are always open for any politician that will be willing to serve the people.

SAS further advised the party members and supporters to conduct themselves peacefully, carefully and properly during the wards, LGA, state and zonal Congresses for the election of their party leaders without any rancour by accepting the out come of the elections and respect the elected leaders to move the part forward.

    Thanks for giving your ideas on this blog. Furthermore, a delusion regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosure is that the loan company will not have my repayments. There is a degree of time that the bank will take payments in some places. If you are as well deep inside hole, they will commonly call that you pay the actual payment completely. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of repayments at all. In the event you and the financial institution can manage to work something out, this foreclosure course of action may cease. However, if you ever continue to miss payments underneath the new system, the property foreclosures process can pick up from where it was left off.
