Overwhelmed by opposition to his candidacy, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff yesterday met with the former Chairman of Northern Governors Forum, ex-Niger State Governor Babangida Aliyu. He urged Aliyu to prevail on some party leaders to take it easy on the opposition to his candidacy.
The embattled PDP leader was shocked that the opposition against his return to office is more pronounced in the North. Sheriff arrived at Aliyu’s Mandara Close, Aso Drive Abuja home at about 6.01pm and left before 7pm. He came in the company of a Senator and three associates and thereafter entered into the inner recess of the mansion for a meeting with the ex-governor.
