A group under the auspices of Arewa Solidarity Organization (ASO) has drummed support for the candidature of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s bid to vie for the position of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in their next convention.
The spokesman of the group, Abdullahi Risky disclosed this to newsmen in Kaduna on Tuesday.
He said the APC need a person with the credentials of Alhaji Modu Sheriff to move the party to greater heights.
“Having served as a Senator and Borno State Governor we understudied his commitment to progressive and party politics, as well as the enhancement of democratic tenets.
‘We are also convinced beyond all doubts and emotions that Sheriff is the best for the APC top job, he stressed.
‘ASO also believe to support his candidature because of the recent statement made by President Muhammadu Buhari that APC should not be allowed to die after his tenure.
To this end,’ ASO resolved to support Sheriff to emerge as the National Chairman because he is about the only one who has what it takes to check the PDP, which is desperate to oust APC from power in 2023.
“His enormous goodwill both within the PDP and other opposition parties will further deplete the size and fortunes of other political parties to the advantage of the APC,” he said.
Arewa Solidarity Organization added that the insecurity bedevilling the country today needs the attention of a competent and experienced hand like Modu Sheriff who was able to cool the waves of insurgency in Borno State during his tenure.
