I Have No Ambition To Become Nigeria’s Next President — Modu Sheriff


By John Ugo, Awka

A leading National Chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff, has dismissed insinuations in some quarters that he wants to be the Party’s Presidential flag bearer for the 2023 general elections.

He declared that his ambition is to become the National Chairman of the APC in order lead a campaign that could produce a president under the Party’s platform just like it in 2015.

Alhaji Sheriff made the clarifications during a press conference on Friday in Abuja on the state of the party ahead of it’s convention on February this year.

He said, “So many insinuations are going around. Ali Modu Sheriff is not looking for Chairman, he is looking to be Presidential candidate. Please, I want to put it on record today, I am not looking for President.”

“I am looking for a National Chairman so that I could lead a campaign like what we did to 2014 to make sure that our father and leader, Buhari, hands over power to another APC man as a President. If I want to be President, I am not afraid of anybody but I don’t want to be President but National Chairman.”

Speaking also on zoning, Sheriff explained that the party leadership, as of today, has not even constituted any committee on the issue of zoning.

“There were meetings in the last three or four days, to even come up with committees for everything including zoning, for the election, for everything. So, the party came up and said we have not even sat. There is no more questions to ask.

He said, “The party has not even come up with any committee. The party leadership said it had not even sat. There is nothing more to say.”

He said that the APC was determined to retain power in 2023 as nobody will build a party and allow it to die.
