The Punch - - PHOTONEWS - Ted Odogwu

Aformer State Gov­er­nor, mal­lam Ibrahim Sheka­rau, has re­futed ru­mour that the All Pro­gres­sive Con­gress is plot­ting to re­place him as the party’s se­na­to­rial can­di­date for Kano Cen­tral.

Dis­miss­ing the re­ports through his spokesman, Ghali Sadiq, Shaka­rau urged the Kano peo­ple of Kano to dis­re­gard the ru­mour, stress­ing that the for­mer min­is­ter of ed­u­ca­tion 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.’’

re­call that a na­tional daily (not re­cently re­ported that there was a plot to re­move Sheka­rau, link­ing the move to the al­leged crim­i­nal case against him by the EFCC.
