He said: “Apart from being my personal friend, he (Badaru) is also a major stakeholder in the party.

“You know that as politicians and friends, there is no way we meet that we cannot discuss politics.

“I’m in Jigawa for consultation. And as you know, this great project cannot be done without consultation.”

Tribune Reports that Sheriff, a founder member of the APC joined the PDP in 2014 and became chairman of the PDP National Working Committee in 2016. He later returned to the APC in 2018.
