Ibrahim who picked the the form from Sheriff on Thursday, said the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, was not legally qualified to assume the chairmanship position of the party.
He further explained that Sheriff is recognized by the law having succeeded former Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, who resigned as national chairman before the expiration of his tenure, adding that if elected, he would pay civil servants within the first 100 days in office.
His words, “I will restructure the state in the area of capacity building, good innovation and by putting the right thing in the right place at the right time.
“I will pay the workers within the first day of my 100 days in office.
“Non-payment of salaries by state government is the failure of innovation of states by governors.
