It was reported further that to ease the movement of his campaign team, the incumbent chairman has acquired some vehicles, among which was a Honda SUV, which was spotted at the party's national secretary in Abuja.

It was further reported that Ali Modu is leaving no stone unturned in vying for the exalted position, which is keenly contested by other members of the party.

The ex-governor of Borno State and a member of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, joined other political parties to form the All Progressive Congress, APC, but was lured to the PDP, by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan while running for his second term.
