The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai has finally addressed the rumour that he is planning to contest for president in the 2023 general elections.

El-Rufai on Saturday, August 8, in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service, dismissed the speculation that he is aspiring for the presidency, Premium Times reported.

El-Rufai insisted that he does not want to be president and has never shown interest in the presidency.

It is a baseless speculation. I don’t want to be president; only God decides someone’s future whether you like it or not, I have never shown interest for the presidency," the governor said.

Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the purported 2023 presidential ticket of a former Lagos state governor, Bola Tinubu, and former speaker, Yakubu Dogara as mere rumour.

The chairman of the APC caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, made the statement during an interview with the BBC Hausa service on Thursday, July 30.

According to Vanguard, Buni who is also the Yobe state governor explained that the purported Tinubu/Dogara presidential ticket was mere hearsay which usually occurs in a democracy.

He said the current focus of the party is how to foster unity among its members and not the 2023 presidential election.

In another news, the former chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel (SPIP) Okoi Obono-Obla, has said that with the way the APC is going presently, it may lose the next general elections. Obono-Obla claimed that the ruling party's leadership is becoming more selfish with no credible register for most of its members, Daily Trust reports.

The former presidential appointee said that unless the APC rebrands, reforms and repositions itself, winning the next presidential poll will be very difficult, if not impossible.
