There are indications that a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Sheriff will, on Thursday, return to the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State, was a founding member of the APC before he defected to the PDP and served as a national chairman.
His tenure in the PDP was controversial leading to the factionalisation of the party.
It took a Supreme Court verdict to declare his opponent, former Kaduna Governor, Ahmed Makarfi, as the authentic leader of the PDP.
A top official of the APC said the former governor would be visiting the National Secretariat of the party by 12 noon to formally announce his return.
