Dr Cairo Ojougboh, Deputy Campaign Director, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff Campaign Organisation in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, said the report is fake and a blatant lie.

“Our attention has been drawn to a report that the Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff Campaign Organisation has joined forces with Malam Isa Yuguda Support Organisation to support the candidacy of Sen. George Akume as APC National Chairman.
“We which to disassociate ourselves from the report issued by Chief Ray Morphy, Co-ordinator South of the George Akume Campaign Organisation.
“The report is fake and should not be regarded, it is nothing but a figment of the imagination of those who planted it.
“We categorically state that the report which claimed that the Senator Ali Modu Sheriff Campaign Organisation is working to ensure that George Akume emerged as APC’s next national chairman at its forthcoming National Convention is a blatant lie from the pit of hell,” he said.
Ojougboh added that the report was ridiculous and completely unfounded, saying that it was from politicians who wanted to scam the APC.
