Sheriff is banking on his Rich Political Experience, Deep Pocket and cordial relationship with Mai Mala Buni to achieve his National Chairmanship Aspiration. Recently, He has been consulting critical Stakeholders in the party to seek their support.
As One of the Few Politicians who have been serving since 1999, Akume has the required Political Expertise to lead the APC. Also, he belongs to the ACN Bloc of the ruling party.
