2019 election: El-Rufai names Hadiza Balarabe as running mate


Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has announced the selection of Dr Hadiza Balarabe as his running mate for the 2019 governorship election.
The governor’s spokesperson, Mr Samuel Aruwan, told newsmen on Friday in Kaduna that the choice of Dr Hadiza Balarabe as running mate continued El-Rufai’s deliberate policy of promoting women in his government.
“There are five female commissioners in his 14-person cabinet, a feat not attained even by governors that had much larger cabinets.
“This is the first time in the history of Kaduna State that a major political party will select a woman as running mate.’’ Aruwan said.
