The Chairman, Stakeholders Forum of the People Democratic Party, PDP, in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State and Sarkin Yaki Festac, Saleh Pashi has described the demise of former Deputy Governor of Kaduna State and former member of the House of Representatives, Late Hon. Arc. Barnabas Bala (Bantex) as “a monumental lost.”
The Aviation expert added, Bantex died when we needed him most. He was a fantastic politician and beckon of hope to his contemporaries and young admirers as well, his demise has created a huge vacuum in the context of Southern Kaduna politics.
His footprint is almost everywhere: in academics, politics, leadership, mentorship etc. Bantex legacies must not be left to die, they should be sustained to continue to aspire people from generation to generation.
On behalf of my family, the PDP family in Kaura LGA and the entire people of our Constituency, we pray that God in His mercy will give the family the fortitude to bear the great lost.
