A former Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Arch. Bala Barnabas Bantex, said it is not possible to be a Deputy Governor to the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufa’i, and be finished.
Bantex stated this at the Zone 3 All Progressives Congress, APC, stakeholders Engagement Committee meeting to discuss on the success of the party registration, held in Kafanchan, at the weekend.
It would be recalled that the former Deputy Governor resigned as El-Rufai’s running mate in 2019 to contest the Southern Kaduna Senatorial seat but lost at the general election.
He said there was no way you can be a deputy Governor to El-Rufai’ and be finished, and stressed that it was not possible.
He said ” For some of you, you think I am finished for 2-years out of government, I am still kicking. Forget that the President is working about something.
” My interest is so minute and nothing can compare to the interest of Kaduna State.”
” I meet with the governor frequently and he makes sure that I am kicking.” Bantex said.
