But Sheriff said all the excuses given to remove him are laughable and lack any common sense.
Sheriff was removed from his position at the May 21 PDP national convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and replaced with Senator Ahmed Makarfi as a caretaker Chairman.
He was reportedly removed because his stay in office was dividing the party as many party leaders and key Chieftains were against him. It was also rumoured that he might be eyeing the Presidency seat in 2019.
He said he never mentioned to anyone that he wanted to run for the 2019 Presidential race, noting that even if he intended to, Fayose could never have been his running mate, as being speculated.
“I am eminently qualified to seek for the presidency of Nigeria, but I have never told anybody I want to be President, but even if I want to be I cannot offer such a sensitive position to a character like Ayo Fayose, who has exhibited gross disrespect for others,” Sheriff said.

He challenged any of the Governors, who alleged that he made promises to prove it, adding that do does not deserved the treatment he got from the party.
However, the former Borno state governor, and a few other executives who were also sacked at the convention are still contenting his removal in court.
