The NYM, in a statement by its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato, alleged that Sheriff and Senator Buruji Kashamu were agents of the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai ,and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi.
Sheriff, however, denied the allegation, saying the PDP governors should be held responsible for the crisis in the party.
He said if he was being used by the APC, then the governors that came to beg him to lead the party must have been sent by the APC.
Speaking through his deputy, Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh, Sheriff urged Nigerians and members of the PDP to ignore such a claim.
He said, “I was in my house when they came to lead the party. The governors came. Were they sent by the APC?”
