Do i smell sardines or what?....let me just reserve my comments....
Former Borno state governor, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff met behind close doors with president Goodluck jonathan yesterday in Aso rock and came out with a surprise statement.Sheriff declared his intentions to decamp from APC and join the PDP, stating it was in the interest of Nigeria as a nation(if i hear!).
Sheriff declared that the meeting had nothing to do with his decision, He told newsmen;
The president of Nigeria is president for everybody. He is the president for the over 170 Million Nigerians and he is the father of everybody. So, every Nigerian has the right to see him, on matters that are either of private concern or anything that affects the nation. So, my coming to visit the president was purely on personal grounds. Yes, there is this issue that I might join the PDP, but that was not the discussion that brought me.On why he was leaving APC, he replied;
“Our interest should be on what makes the nation move forward. My decisions will be guided by the interests of the nation first. My thinking of moving to the PDP is also in the interest of the nation. We believe that every time, as a leader who leads people, you should advise them on the right course of action.”PDP Rocks!
