Ali Modu Sheriff Will Work For APC – Governor Ganduje
Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that the new chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, will ultimately work for the APC judging from his antecedents, Leadership reports.
The governor was reacting to the PDP chairman’s recent utterances that his party will seize power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2019. The governor spoke when he interfaced with journalists in Abuja yesterday.
He said: “I wouldn’t like to engage in cross fire but what I would like to tell you is that it is the usual utterances of those who want to impress their followers but I believe it is an empty threat. Looking at the antecedents, looking at the history of the chairman himself, I think he is a cross carpeter.
“He is always on the move, changing from one party to another. Even when he was in ANPP for eight years, he was working for the PDP, and even the APC started with him and then he went back to the PDP. Infact we are happy because at the end of the day, he will work for us. That is what I believe, at the long run, he will work for us. Find out his history”.
When asked his thoughts on the possibility of the creation of state police in the light of the security situation in the country, he said: “ I think there is no better time to have it than now because the security at the moment needs a lot of intelligence gathering. It involves people who are conversant with the society, who are conversant with the tradition, who are conversant with the culture. They are in a better position to assist in terms of surveillance, in terms of collecting information, in terms of being effective. I believe that state police is something that should be pursued.”
