The Borno State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC have debunked speculations that the former governor of the state, Senator Ali Sheriff, is set to return to the party.
This was confirmed by the Chairman and Secretary of the coalition, Alhaji Maina Bashir and Abdullahi Mala respectively, made the rebuttal in Abuja on Wednesday.
They said, “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.
“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.”
According to them, if the speculation is found to be true that the former governor wants to return to the APC, he should go to Ngala, his town and register with his ward chairman.
