The former governor disclosed this to newsmen shortly after meeting with the Jigawa State Governor, Muhammad Badaru Abubakar.

Sheriff, who has since returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC), said he cannot fully kickstart his campaign for the party chairmanship race without consulting state governors.

According to him, “Governors of our great party, APC, are the engine room of the party and one cannot do anything tangible without consulting them.”

Sheriff further said, “Today, our party needs a resilient leadership that knows what it takes to salvage it and I’m a more committed person that would do just that.”

The former governor hinted that he was meeting with the Jigawa State Governor because he is one of the top respected chieftains of the APC, who is known for his dogged commitment to the betterment of party loyalists.

He added, “Whatever one is doing as far as APC is concerned in Nigeria, you have to consult Badaru because of his position among leaders in the nation and my ambitions could only be achieved if I consult governors.”

Sheriff, who held two hours meeting with Governor Badaru behind a closed-door, insisted that he is the best material to be the chairman of the APC
