Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, debunks 2023 presidential ambition, says the report has its source in beer parlor gossips

We will like to stress that the Senate President’s preoccupation is with advancing the agenda of the Ninth National Assembly

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has released an official statement through his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, debunking media reports that he’s making plans for 2023 presidency. According to the news shared by Daily Independent newspaper and Sahara Reporters, the Senstr president Is gradually grooming is 2023 presidential ambition.

Press Statement
The attention of the office of the president of the Senate has been drawn to a rather puerile media report that the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, is making plans to run for president in 2023. The report was first published by the Daily Independent newspaper of Friday, 17tg July, 2020 and reproduced later by the Sahara Repoters.

It is easy to see that the report emanated fromtgesort of practice that drags the noble profession of journalism to the gutters as it only dresses up the lazy fantasy of its unimaginative authors as a fact. The report apparently has its source in beer parlor gossips and should be treated with contempt which it and those who concocted it deserves.

It is true that the Senaste President was involved in the consultation that President Muhammadu Buhari held prior to the last emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

But there was nothing extra-ordinary in his involvement in such consultations, given his status as holder of one of the highest political offices in Nigeria and on the platform of the APC. Such is required of any concerned member of the party. It is therefore sheer mischief for anyone to read ulterior motives to the Senate President joining hands with the President and other leaders in resolving misunderstanding in their own party.

We will like to stress that the Senate President’s preoccupation is with advancing the agenda of the Ninth National Assembly of focus governance on the pursuit of the best interests of the Nigerian people and to support President Buhari in delivering his promises to Nigerians. The Senate President does not suffer such needless distractions as imputed by the false report under reference. He believes that it is premature for anybody to be talking now about 2024 when all hands should be on deck against the myriad of challenges that faced our nation.

We advise the idle pseudo-journalists to look for another engagements and stop bastardizing this noble profession.
