Friends and family members of our Honorable Member of Parliament in waiting, Sherif Carew, I have a very simple task at this juncture to introduce him to this close group. He is our friend, son, nephew, brother, cousin and father. What a combination! Sheriffu is vying for the parliamentary seat in constituency 122 via the mighty APC party.
It’s going to be a vigorous and competitive campaign/race and I know most members in this close group in their personal ways are directly and or indirectly contributing towards Sheriffu’s campaign. I am humbly asking you to take our contributions to a potential new level.
I believe we are individually better in our deliberations, but I know our collective efforts will be immeasurable and next to none. Sheriffu needs and deserves our collective moral support, our undivided advice and our collective financial support.
At this point, time is not on our side, let us go to to work for our OWM! I look up for your frank and constructive suggestions, advises and inputs. Cheers!
