Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State, has denied interest in the 2023 Presidential elections.
The governor distanced himself from promotional activities linking him with the 2023 presidential election.
It will be recalled that in the last two weeks, campaign posters and fliers urging Governor Akeredolu to contest the next Presidential election have flooded social media.
The latest poster showed an Akeredolu/Buni joint APC ticket.
Mai Mala Buni is the Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and governor of Yobe State.
But Akeredolu’s spokesperson, Richard Olatunde, described the development as a “needless distraction’’.
“Undoubtedly, the development is no less a needless distraction. Even though Mr Governor’s constitutional right, qualification and competencies are not in doubt, this does not represent in any manner, his immediate political disposition.
“For emphasis, Governor Akeredolu who has just been re-elected wishes to be left to focus on deepening good governance in Ondo State.’’
