Jonathan has already called to congratulate Sheriff who he allegedly described as the right choice for the position.
Jonathan’s was said to have queued behind Sheriff because of his belief that the former governor has the guts, influence, native wisdom and the wherewithal to lead PDP to displace the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
