Prof. Dora Akunyili, a former Minister of Information, has denied speculations that she has plans to take a shot at the number seat of Anambra State come November 2013.
The former Director-General of the National Agency for Food, Drugs, Administration and Control (NAFDAC), described the claim as a distraction, saying she does not have the intention to contest the governorship election.
“Must I run for every election,” she asked. “It is an unnecessary distraction.”
When asked on her next political step, she said “I may eventually re-contest the senatorial position when the time is ripe.”
“When the time comes I will run for what I consider is best for me and will safeguard my vote,” Akunyili added.
She further pleaded with rumour mongers to desist from peddling such.
