Former Kano State Governor, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau has declared that he is battle ready for the 2019 Presidential election.
He said that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar cannot stop him.
Shekarau had earlier informed the PDP and various stakeholders of his intention to contest for the presidency in 2019.
Speaking through his media aide, Sule Ya’u Sule, the 2011 presidential candidate on the platform of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, told Sun “We are battle ready.
“We ran in 2003 for governorship, we had no money, but we won. We ran in 2007 for a second term, and despite the odds against us, God made it possible.
“We have run for the presidency before and so we are not threatened by Atiku’s return to the PDP. Ultimately it is the electorate that will decide.
“We rely on God and not anyone else. We are in the race, there is no going back.”
