The Executive Secretary of Kaduna State Primary Health Care Agency, Dr Hadiza Abubakar-Balarabe, may emerge as the running mate of Governor Nasiru El-Rufai in the 2019 elections,barring any last-minute change.

The state deputy governor, Arc Barnabas Yusuf Bala, announced recently that he won’t be El-Rufai’s running mate again and has since clinched the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Kaduna Southern Senatorial District.

Dr Hadiza, a Numana by tribe, hails from Gwantu, Sanga local government area, in the southern part of the state.

El-Rufai’s spokesman Samuel Aruwan could not be reached for comment.

But insiders told Daily Trust that the medical doctor, who is currently attending a conference in Kenya, “was summoned yesterday by Governor El-Rufai over the same issue.”

If picked as a running mate and elected, Dr Hadiza will be the second female deputy governor of the state after Mrs Pamela Sadauki.

She’s a trained medical consultant on public health and primary health care. She obtained her MBBS from the University of Maiduguri in 1988.

She worked as a public health consultant, public health physician, Federal Capital Territory Primary Health Care Board, and director public health, Federal Capital Territory Administration.
