The Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Architect Barnabas Bala Bantex has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai as well as his colleagues from Zone 1 and Zone II, Suleiman Abdu Kwari and Malam Uba Sani respectively, for their emergence as the APC flag bearers at the just concluded primary elections across the Country.
In a statement he issued after his victory as the APC Senatorial Candidate for Kaduna South (Zone 3), he appreciated the delegates who made his victory possible, his colleagues in government, stakeholders and all those who supported him before, during and after the primary elections.
He also congratulated his opponent, Senator Caleb Zagi for his uncommon display of political maturity throughout the exercise and wished him the very best in his subsequent political endeavours.
“I am looking forward to an issue based political campaign and engagements with my opponents based on my past political antecedents in the last 25 years and the uncommon track record of the el-Rufai’s administration in which I’m a major stakeholder for the past three and a half years,” he said.
He assured his supporters and the entire people of the Senatorial Zone that his passion to deliver parliamentary democratic value to his people is his driving force in the race.
“I wish to sincerely appreciate everyone for your relentless efforts and sacrifices ever since I threw my hat in the ring for this political race,” he said.
