Daily Trust - - NEWS - From An­drew Agbese, Kaduna

Kaduna State Gov­er­nor Nasir ElR­u­fai has ap­pointed his run­ning mate for the 2019 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, as his Se­nior Ad­viser-Coun­sel­lor.

A state­ment yes­ter­day from the Govern­ment House, Kaduna in­di­cated that the ap­point­ment was with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

Balarabe is the ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary of the State Pri­mary Health Care De­vel­op­ment Agency.

The state­ment said Balarabe would work from the Govern­ment House over­see­ing key agen­cies re­port­ing to the gov­er­nor like the state Pen­sions Board, KADGIS and KASUPDA, ad­vis­ing the gov­er­nor on mat­ters of hu­man cap­i­tal de­vel­op­ment, and un­der­study­ing him and the deputy gov­er­nor in all as­pects of gov­er­nance.

“As Se­nior Ad­vis­erCoun­sel­lor she will be at the heart of govern­ment, at­tend­ing meet­ings of the State Ex­ec­u­tive and Se­cu­rity Coun­cils. This new re­spon­si­bil­ity places her within the sec­ond ech­e­lon of the govern­ment, next to the two elected lead­ers of the ex­ec­u­tive branch. She will join other se­nior of­fi­cials to drive the pol­icy and gov­er­nance as­pi­ra­tions of the govern­ment in the re­main­ing cru­cial months of the cur­rent man­date.
