After the Supreme Court sacked national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Mdu Sheriff said he has not congratulated Senator Ahmed Makarfi on his victory at the Supreme Court.
There are online reports that Sheriff had congratulated Makarfi on his twitter handle @senatorsheriff.
But in a statement by the erstwhile spokesman of the faction, Bernard Mikko, Sheriff said it is mischievous for anyone to say that he congratulated Makarfi on twitter.
Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State warned those he described as mischief-makers to desist from trying to exploit his huge political capital for selfish gains.
“Our attention has been drawn to a fake congratulatory message credited to an imaginary Twitter handle of Sen (Dr) Ali Modu Sheriff, the immediate past PDP National Chairman.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff do not have or own a twitter account and could not have tweeted any message.
“We therefore view the said message as fake and mischievous and should be discountenanced as that of evil doers,” the statement said.
