Sheriff, who spoke through the former spokesmen of his National Working Committee, Mr. Bernard Mikko, said that he will address a world press conference on the way forward, after studying the Supreme Court judgment.
He said, “Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was neither in the country nor invited to the assemblage at Wadata Plaza yesterday evening.
