“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”, says Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state in an interview with Vanguard.
Having made the above statement, one would think he’d actually keep to his words, but then, a politician has to take advantage of every opportunity to score political points.
The governor further stated that Sheriff, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party will successfully destroy the opposition party.
With all certainty, Shettima said his former boss will annihilate the PDP ‘to the better glory of the APC’.
“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.”
“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.”
