Dora Akunyili, former minister of information, has debunked rumours of her ambition to contest the governorship election in Anambra in November 2013.
Akunyili, who made this known when he addressed newsmen in Awka on Thursday, described the rumour as a big distraction.
“Must I run for every election, it is an unnecessary distraction”, she said, noting that she might eventually re-contest the senatorial position “when the time is ripe”.
Akunyili, who is also a former director-general of the National Agency for Food, Drugs, Administration and Control (NAFDAC) added, “When the time comes I will run for it and safeguard my vote”.
She warned rumour mongers to desist from their action.
