Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has given his reasons for appointing a Muslim running mate in the person of  Dr. Hadiza Balarabe for the 2019 elections

According to the governor, his choice was based on her competence rather than her religion.

“Muslim-Muslim ticket is not a religious ticket but a competent and performance ticket,” the governor said.

He added: “The people that have criticised me most on this are people who never voted me in the first place. So, are they not supposed to be celebrating it?

“In their own opinion, I have made a wrong choice. Then, why are they mourning?”

Also reacting to the appointment of Dr. Balarabe was the paramount ruler of Numana in Sanga LG, which happens to be where Dr. Balarabe originates from, Brigadier-General Aliyu Yamma (Rtd) said that the decision to pick the Dr was a sound one and one that would not be regretted

“The governor couldn’t have made a better choice than the selection of Hadiza.

“We now feel a sense of belonging in Kaduna government. We are just like Black Americans in Kaduna State,”

He was proud that she is El-Rufai’s running mate as he noted that administrations that had gone before had neglected that area when it came to governance.
