The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has revealed that he is not interested in running as the Vice presidential candidate to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Recall that there have been speculations that Jonathan and Malami will contest the forthcoming 2023 presidential election as President and Vice President.
Reacting hrough his media aide, Dr Bashir Gwandu on Monday, Malami dismissed the rumour, saying that it is a plot to distract him from his current official duties.
According to him, he never discussed such aspirations with anybody and had not shown interest in any political post.
“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.
Malami warned that people should stop peddling such unfounded rumours.
