Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State, on Thursday, met former President Olusegun Obasanjo behind closed doors.
Sen. Modu Sheriff stressed the need for young politicians to tap from the experience and knowledge of Obasanjo.
According to him, “It is purely a private visit; you know Baba (Obasanjo) is an elder statesman.
“If Nigeria is a company, Baba is the Chairman and Chief Executive of Nigeria. So, I came for consultation and had 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.”
Inquiring if his discussion with baba was on the Nigeria project, the former governor replied, “I didn’t say that, it is a private visit.”
When asked about his views on the 2023 elections, Modu-Sheriff said, “Your view is my view, what is your view? What is my view? I want my party to win.”
Sheriff, a former national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), is now a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
