Governor Mai Mala Buni, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee, has dismissed report that Ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, was been prepared to be the running mate of APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in 2023.
The Yobe State Governor who spoke during an interview on the Hausa service of the British Broadcasting Corporation on Thursday, noted said; “These are mere rumour and rumor strive in democracy. That’s not even our concern for now. It is not even proper to start talking about 2023 when we have a seating President.
“People are surprise when Dogara joined us (APC). That’s how we will continue to spring surprises. In democracy, people talk but 2023 is not even our priority now. We are working towards uniting the party,” he added.
Buni further noted that the APC would win the forthcoming Edo Governorship election in September.
