Ali Modu Sheriff, former governor of Borno state, says ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo would be the chief executive officer (CEO) of Nigeria if the country were a private company.

Sheriff spoke on Thursday after he held a closed-door meeting with Obasanjo.

The meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes, was held at the private residence of the former president in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.

Sheriff, while addressing journalists afterwards, described the visit as “private”.


“My coming here is for a pure private meeting,” he said.

“Baba Obasanjo is an elder statesman and I, being a younger one, it is important that from time to time, I come and greet my father, discuss with him and go back.

“You know, if Nigeria were a private company, Obasanjo would have been the chairman/chief executive officer. So I have come for consultation and private chat.”


On the forthcoming 2023 elections, Sheriff said he wants the All Progressives Congress (APC) to emerge victorious.

“I want my party to win,” he said.

Sheriff was one of the contestants for the APC national chairmanship position.

He, however, stepped down due to the party’s zoning arrangement.
