Ali Modu Sheriff committee for Buhari campaign killed by FG
The Federal Government has issued a disclaimer to the notice announcing the appointment of Ali Modu Sherif, former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the Director General of President Muhammadu Buhari’s support committee for the 2019 election.
According to a statement by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the committee was “unauthorised” and should be “disregarded”.
Lawrence Ojabo, Director, Press, office of the SGF, who issued the disclaimer on Saturday said:
“The attention of the OSGF has been drawn to documents in circulation in print and social media purportedly issued by the SSA to the President on Political Matters as public notice, appointing certain individuals into different roles under the BUHARI SUPPORT COMMITTEE.
“It has become imperative to clarify to all Nigerians and in particular to APC members that the said documents are unauthorised, misleading and should therefore be totally disregarded.
“Appropriate administrative measures are being put in place to ensure that such lapse does not recur in future”.
Ali Modu Sheriff, two-time governor of Borno State was until recently the interim chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party. He recently switched to the All Progressives Congress, along with a bloc of the PDP.
