The demise of the immediate former deputy governor of Kaduna state, Arc. Bala Barnabas Bantex came to me as a real shock.
Though death is inevitable, it’s always to man unbelievable when one closed or so dear to you passes away to the great beyond. The news of the death of Arc. Bala Barnabas Bantex was one and as usual, became real that the lecturer, former Executive chairman of Kaura local government area, former member, House of Representatives and former deputy governor of Kaduna state from 2015 to 2019 has gone forever.
Late Arc. Bala Barnabas Bantex was a member of the Constitutional Conference that took place in 1994. All his experiences, exposure and contributions were meant for the the growth of humanity stood him out as a great asset not only to his family, locality, local government, state but the country as a whole.
Looking at the lifestyle of late Bala Bantex, he was a man who stood for the progress of humanity and peaceful coexistence of the human race. We have really missed a real son of the soil whose dream was to contribute meaningfully to the survival of all irrespective of any political difference or affiliation.
Arc. Bala Barnabas Bantex, as you leave this world of uncertainty to the great beyond, my prayers sincerely to God Almighty that your soul finds eternal rest with the Lord, the KING of GLORY.
Till we meet to part no more. We are really going to miss your natured and sincere contributions to issues around us that continue to beg for answers.
Rest on Brother,
Honourable Timothy Adamu Kaura.
