El-Rufai Confirms Dr Hadiza Balarabe as Running Mate

Governor Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna State has confirmed the Executive Secretary of Kaduna State Primary Health Care Agency, Dr Hadiza Abubakar-Balarabe, as his running mate for the 2019 governorship election.

El-Rufai made the confirmation via the official Twitter account of the Governor of Kaduna state, @GovKaduna Friday, saying the choice of Dr Hadiza is consistent with the governor’s policy of promoting women.

The medical doctor, who is currently attending a conference in Kenya, “was summoned yesterday by Governor El-Rufai over the same issue.”

This comes as the state deputy governor, Arc Barnabas Yusuf Bala, announced recently that he won’t be El-Rufai’s running mate again and has since clinched the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Kaduna Southern Senatorial District.
