The All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that the speculated 2023 Presidential ticket of the National Leader of the ruling party, Bola Tinubu, and the recently defected Yakubu Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, is a mere rumour, OBSERVERS TIMES learnt
The Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, made the disclosure on Thursday.
Governor Buni added that the APC would spring a surprise in the September Governorship election in Edo State.
Speaking in an interview on the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, he disclosed that the APC would coast to victory in the Edo poll.
When asked whether it is true that Yakubu Dogara joined the ruling party, so that Tinubu and Dogara would contest to have a Muslim/Christian ticket, he said: “These are mere rumours, and rumours strive in a democracy. That is 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 is 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.”
