Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has explained why he picked Dr. Hadiza Balarabe, a fellow Muslim, as his running mate for the 2019 election.

The governor said she defeated 31 others to emerge as his choice, irrespective of her religious background.

El-Rufai disclosed this at the Government House in Kaduna, on Tuesday, when he hosted people of Sanga Local Government, where Dr. Balarabe comes from. They paid him a ‘Thank You’ visit over her choice as his running mate in 2019.

Her announcement as El-Rufai’s running mate has generated a lot of reactions across the state because it is a Muslim/Muslim ticket, the first of its kind in Kaduna state.

In a swift response to his critics, El-Rufai said Government House is not a place of worship but a place of work for the people.
