Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has stated that he has no plans to run for Vice President alongside former President Goodluck Jonathan.
There have been rumours that Jonathan and Malami will run together in the 2023 presidential election.
On Monday, Malami, responding through his media aide, Dr Bashir Gwandu, characterised the allegation as a figment of someone’s imagination.
He made it apparent that he had never discussed his political ambitions with anyone and that he had exhibited no interest in any political position.
“2023 is still very far to even talk about it, the attorney has never indicated interest to stand for election with anybody. He advised members of the public to be wary of what they say or post on social media or anywhere, what the minister needs now is to focus more on how to deliver much needed services to the country and that he has been doing and will continue,” the statement said.
The Minister further warned that people should not force words into his mouth and should henceforth stop peddling such unfounded rumours.
