He said:

“For the avoidance of doubt, since my resignation from partisan politics in October 2022, which was widely reported, I have never made any statement to the media on any matter relating to partisan politics or the fortunes of any political party or candidate under any bear whatever.

“I faithfully worked and served my party for more than 20 years. In my time, I became one of the party’s most influential officials and helped and influenced the careers of many legislators, ministers and governors. I now seek to help and influence the affairs of citizens regardless of their political inclination”.

“There are so many areas to help the nation in addition to any pursuit of personal promotion and/or office.
