Former Borno State Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff, has described former president Olusegun Obasanjo as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria.
Sheriff said, ‘if Nigeria were to be a company, Chief Obasanjo would have been its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.”
A one-time National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stated this on Thursday, during a private visit to the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
He said, “this is purely a private visit, you know Baba (Obasanjo) is an elder state man. If Nigeria is a company, Baba Obasanjo is the Chairman and Chief Executive of Nigeria. So, I came for consultation and have a private chat with baba.”
“If Nigeria is a company, baba is the Chairman, I’m the younger one, so from time to time, I must come and greet my father, discuss with him, privately and go back.”
Responding to what his view on the 2023 is, Sheriff jokingly told the journalists, “Your view is my view, what is your view? What is my view? I want my party (APC) to win” apparently drumming support for the presidential bid of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
