Former Kano State Governor Ibrahim Shekarau has denied rumours that the All Progressive Congress (APC) is plotting to replace him as the party’s senatorial candidate for Kano Central.
Speaking through his spokesperson, Ghali Sadiq, the former governor said he was fully prepared for the 2019 election and would emerge victorious.
He said: “There have been funny insinuations on the Internet by certain individuals, especially opposition party members, who are not happy with the candidacy of Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau.
“Shekarau is still the APC senatorial candidate for Kano Central senatorial district and by the grace of God, we are going to win the election, in 2019.”
A national daily had recently reported that there was a plot to remove Shekarau, linking the move to the alleged criminal case against him by the EFCC.
