Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni on Thursday described the much talked about 2023 presidential ticket of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former Speaker Yakubu Dogara as mere rumour.
Buni, who is also the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee, stated this in an interview with BBC Hausa Service on Thursday.
He also said that the APC would spring a surprise in the September governorship election in Edo State, adding that the party would coast to victory in the Edo poll.
Speaking on Dogara’s return to the APC and insinuations that Tinubu/Dogara would contest to have Muslim/Christian ticket, Buni said: “These are mere rumour and rumour 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 sitting President.
“People are surprised 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.”
