Modu Sherrif Visits APC Secretariat, Eyes Party Chairmanship

The former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sherrif rumoured to be eyeing the office of the National Chairmanship of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday paid a surprise visit to the national secretariat of the party in Abuja.

Sherrif who arrived the party office at about 4.15 pm went straight to the office of the National Chairman, Caretaker Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, where he held a brief meeting that lasted for about 15 minutes.

Efforts by newsmen to inquire about his mission to the party secretariat met a stone wall as the former Governor dashed into his black G-Wagon car and drove off the party Secretariat.

The chairman of the caretaker committee, Gov. Buni also left the Secretariat.

A reliable source in the office of the chairman of the caretaker committee said the two leaders had to leave the office for an undisclosed venue for a meeting.

The names of two former Bornu State governors, Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Kashim Shetima as well as the former Lagos State military governor, Gen. Buba Maruwa are been touted for eyeing the national chairmanship seat at the National Convention of party later in the year.

More to come…
