The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has disclosed that he is reaching out to members of the party who left for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties.
The Senator, however, maintained that he was not going to mention their names yet.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Inuwa Bwala in Abuja on Saturday, Sheriff noted that the controversy that trailed his appointment was as a result of alleged panic in the camp of the ruling party.
He observed that the APC leadership was aware of his capability to unite the members of the PDP and also bring back those who defected to the APC, hence the controversy on his appointment.
Bwala said, “We have started reaching out to those who left the PDP and we are discussing already.
“We are getting positive results from them, but we won’t go to the pages of newspapers to announce their names.
“The APC and its leadership are aware that Sheriff has the ability to unite the members of the PDP and also bring back those who have left the party.
“This was why we had the initial controversy on the appointment. But now, we have thrown that behind us as we have resumed work fully.”
The former governor of Borno State refused to reveal if he had met with the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, on whether he would return to the PDP or not.
