The wife of a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Ahmadu Ali, has left her husband’s party for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mrs. Maryam Ali was received yesterday by the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, at the party’s national secretariat.
She was accompanied by the Delta State APC Chairman, Jones Ode Erue; Chief Frank Kokori; Chief Great Ogboru, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and other top APC stalwarts and supporters from Delta State.
Mrs Ali said she joined the APC to continue rendering services to her people and Nigeria at large.
“I know also a lot of people will wonder why I have chosen to opt for a political party different from my husband’s. The answer is not farfetched. My family is a unique family; it is a family devoid of religious and ethnic differences. You are all aware that Dr. Ahmadu Ali is a Muslim and I am a passionate Catholic. Also, Dr. Ahmadu Ali is from North Central and I am form the South South.
“We symbolise a people who want to serve a nation, a nation where oneness, love and peace reign supreme.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun, in his remarks, said Mrs. Ali’s adoption of the APC had added value and quality to the party and its leadership both in Delta State and at the national level.
