The man Femi Fani-Kayode said made him to
leave the APC, as he is the �known creator� of
Boko Haram is now in the same PDP with Fani-
Kayode and the man is now President Goodluck
Jonathan�s friend.
Ex-Governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff
came out of a meeting with President Goodluck
Jonathan at the Aso Rock presidential villa on
Friday, declaring that his decision to join the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was in the
interest of Nigeria as a nation.
�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,� he said.
He also suggested that to end insurgency in Borno
State and contain the activities of the dreaded
Boko Haram sect, a perfect understanding of the
terrain and political knowledge of the state was
necessary.
Speaking with state house correspondents after
the meeting, Sheriff claimed he is a strong
politician in Borno.
Asked to further on why he was abandoning his
party, the APC, Sheriff said, �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.
