David Umahi, the Chairman of the Southeast Governors Forum, endorsed Ali Modu Sheriff, the former governor of Borno State, as the party’s national chairman.
According to Umahi, Sheriff should be allowed to run unopposed for the position of national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, because he is the only man who can be reached at any time.
“One thing I know about this man (Ali Modu sheriff),” he said, “is that he is approachable and extremely humble. He is a good man, and if I were the party’s leader (APC), I would declare him unopposed. I want to reassure you that my father, Mr. President, as the party’s leader, has a significant role to play.
“He is the only one who has the authority to make the decision, but if we are given the option, he is my choice. We will always obey Mr. President if he says something in the interest of the party.
“Our prayers are with you, sir, and I want to reassure you that I have no regrets in stating that Mr. President is a good man. And it is for other leaders to have the same good heart, to be patriotic, and for the country to be a better place for all of us.
“No development can take place if one has a good heart but others are not patriotic. Because no one man can achieve anything on his own, I urge you to rally behind Mr. President. And he (Buhari) is a man who is aware of his own integrity, which no one can take away.
He insisted, “I have no regrets or apologies in saying that Mr President is a good man with a good heart.”
Sheriff previously stated that if elected national chairman of the APC, he intends to unite the party.
“In Southeastern Nigeria, the APC has only two strong states. As a result of what I’ve seen, I can now recommend that people visit Ebonyi State, because the governor (Umahi) has made the APC governors proud,” he said.
