Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, a two term governor of Borno and a national chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that he remains loyal to the party’s governors as its leaders in their respective states.
He said this in a statement signed by Hon. Bernard Mikko, Media Director of his campaign organisation on Tuesday in Abuja, while reacting to a negative media report concerning his aspiration.
“It has come to the notice of Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff Campaign Organisation that a former governor and a serving Senator who is also interested in contesting the APC National Chairmanship position is hatching a plan to use the media to course mischief and disaffection between Sheriff, APC governors and its leadership.
“The public and APC governors in particular, should note that such disinformation is baseless and untrue and cannot be coming from Ali Modu Sheriff.
“It is only to create friction in the polity”. Sheriff remains loyal to APC and to its governors whom he has good working relationship with over the years.
The statement quoted Sheriff as saying that he would never be in opposition to any APC governor.
It added that Sheriff also a former Senator, has great regards for all APC governors and the party’s leadership.
It assured that the former Borno governor would work amicably with all APC governors as leaders of the party in their respective states if he was elected as the party’s next national chairmanship at its coming National Convention expected to hold before the end of the year.(https://newsatlarge.ng)
