Maiduguri - Former Governor of Borno, Ali Modu Sheriff, has stated that he defected from the All Progressives Congress to the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in order to help put an end to the numerous security problems facing his state.
He said his decision to join the PDP was a personal sacrifice for the Borno people, reports NewsDay.
He noted that changes are better made when you are with the government at the center.
He said there is no sacrifice too much for him to make for the people of Borno because they have done so much for him.
Sheriff, who was recently named by an Australian hostage negotiator, Stephen Davis, as one of the main sponsors and financiers of Boko Haram, said it was a great disservice to link him with the scourge of Boko Haram in Nigeria.
