Former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has described ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nigeria.

Sheriff met with Obasanjo at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday.

The former governor told journalists that his visit to Obasanjo was a private one.

Sheriff described Obasanjo as the “Chairman and Chief Executive of Nigeria” whose wealth of knowledge in public administration would continue to be of benefits to other politicians.”

He stressed the need for young politicians to tap from the experience and knowledge of Obasanjo.

He said: “It is purely a private visit, you know baba (Obasanjo) is an elder statesman. If Nigeria is a company, baba is the Chairman and Chief Executive of Nigeria. So, I came for consultation and have a private chat with baba.

“If Nigeria is a company, baba is the Chairman, I’m the younger one, so from time to time, I must come and greet my father, discuss with him, privately and go back.”

On whether his discussion with Obasanjo was on the Nigeria project, the former governor said, “I didn’t say that, it is a private visit”.

When asked about his views on 2023 elections, Sheriff said: “Your view is my view. What is your view? What is my view? I want my party to win.”
