My Boss Ali Modu Sheriff Will Certainly Destroy the PDP – Shettima
Agricultural economist, turned banker and now politician, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has said that the former governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff will annihilate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the greater glory of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ahead of his investiture as Vanguard’s Governor of the Year, 2015, Governor Shettima in two separate interview sessions in Maiduguri and Lagos spoke to Vanguard on his political development among other things including the role of his former boss Sherrif as the new Chairman of the leading opposition PDP.
According to him, “His Excellency, Senator Ali Sheriff is my boss and is someone that I am eternally indebted to. I always tend to shy away from commenting on issues directly involving him. He is a very consummate politician who is presiding over a dead horse, and I am absolutely certain that he will see to the total annihilation of the PDP.
“The PDP is an idea whose time has elapsed. The mind disturbing revelations about how funds meant to acquire weapons to prevent Boko Haram insurgents from their scales of murder, were siphoned is enough to erase the PDP from the minds of the party’s founding fathers, those who drafted it’s constitution and those who designed the party’s if they have conscience. I don’t see majority of good Nigerians ever accepting the PDP again except perhaps, a different political affiliation but certainly not PDP as it is known.”
Maintaining his initial point, Shettima said again, “My boss is a very consummate politician, he can survive in any political terrain. He will certainly find his way and will successfully destroy the PDP to the better glory of the APC.”
