We are still in PDP, says Mikko

Contrary to insinuations that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff’s recent visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was to pave way for his eventual defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC), erstwhile spokesperson of Sheriff group, Bernard Mikko, insists they are still members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mikko also denied any meeting with APC national chairman, John Oyegun, stressing that Sheriff’s visit to Osinbajo “was purely on national state matters and had nothing to do with politics.”
Meanwhile, the APC chairman, Odigie-Oyegun has also distanced himself from Sheriff’s visit to Aso Rock. Some reports had claimed that both Odigie-Oyegun and Sheriff met with Osinbajo, in connection with Sheriff’s purported moves to rejoin the APC.
On the nexus between the visit and recent defection of the former Deputy National Chairman of PDP, Cairo Ojougboh, who was a staunch supporter of Sheriff, Mikko explained that Ojougbo informed him of his intention to join APC in Delta State, adding that as a politician he took what he considered his best decision.
