According to a Naij report, Shehu wrote to PDP Chairman Ali Modu Sheriff, demanding that the party retract their statement within three days and issue an apology upon receipt of the letter.

"We condemn your defamatory and libellous actions in the strongest terms and we state that this is least expected from an organization of your standing which produced past and present crops of leaders, expected to be role model in the country," the letter stated.
The PDP had earlier taken to its Twitter page to accuse Shehu of buying $800,000 from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at official rate and selling the money off on the same day at black market rate.
The party also claimed that President Buhari, his wife and aides, were beneficiaries of dollar allocations.
