A former Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Tanko Al-Makura, has vowed not to withdraw from the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship race.
Infantng learnt that President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed Senator Abdullahi Adamu, also a former governor of Nasarawa, for the top APC job.
While some chairmanship aspirants of the party silently withdrew from the race, Al-Makura has intensified his campaign.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Sunday, Al-Makura, who currently represents Nasarawa South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, said the endorsement of his opponent by Buhari is a speculation.
“The sources of information were not authentic. They were not genuine. And I know what Mr. President stands for, he always stands for what is right and due process. And unless I have an authoritative source of information that is clear. I still have my doubts. I have many avenues through which I can reach Mr. President and people around him.
“And since those speculation did not come through those avenues, I consider them as a speculation. That is why as I speak with you, my campaign is going with a different tempo, to ensure that my campaign is going far and wide to await the next line of action as directed by the party leadership.”
