The All Progressives Congress national leadership has urged former factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and others that wished to join the party to do so at the ward level.
Malam Bolaji Abudullahi, the APC National Publicity Secretary gave the charge in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.
The statement was in reaction to reports in some section of the media that Sheriff planned to defect to the APC today.
Abdullahi said: “Our attention has been drawn to reports in some sections of the media that the former factional chairman of the PDP, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff plans to defect to the APC today.
“While we are aware of such intentions, we wish to restate our earlier position that anyone who wants to join the party should do so at the ward level.”
He added that the party was however, happy to welcome new members to its fold, but stressed that membership cards were not issued at its national secretariat in Abuja.
