Kaduna Dep Gov Dumps El-Rufai’s 2nd Term Bid
Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Arch. Barnabas Bala Bantex on Thursday declared his intention to contest for the Senate in Southern senatorial zone.
By his declaration, Bantex has dropped his position as Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s running mate in the 2019 governorship race, which his principal had since declared for.
The Deputy Governor said his decision was taken to give his people quality representation and address national issues affecting them.
Bantex, who intends to contest on All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket, said he took the difficult decision due to what his people have gone through in the area of insecurity in the last 10 years and the inability of their leaders to rise against it, when it could have easily been done, coupled with the need to give good leadership that would drag the zone from quagmire into greatness and progression.
