I was not edged out of APC chairmanship race – Sheriff

A former governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has dispelled claims in some quarters that he has been edged out of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairmanship race.

Sheriff also dispelled claims that he was interested in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023. 

Addressing newsmen Friday in Abuja, the former governor said he couldn’t have been edged out of the race when the top echelon of the party had not yet decided on zoning.

Sheriff said his emergence as national chairman would prepare the party for victory beyond 2023. 

“So many insinuations are going around that Ali Modu Sheriff is not looking for chairmanship; that he wants to be presidential candidate. Please, I want to put it on record today that I am not looking to be the president.

“I am looking for the post of national chairman so that I can lead a campaign like what we did in 2014 to make sure that our father and leader (Buhari) hands over power to another APC man as president,” he said.
