Did El-Rufai And His Deputy, Bantex Slap Each Other? Here Is The Story by erunz(m): 6:15pm On Mar 25, 2016
The Whistle has been monitoring reports that the Governor of Kaduna state Mallam Nasir el-Rufai and his deputy, Architect Barnabas Bala Bantex had traded slaps during an argument at a cabinet meeting in the state.

According to a reliable source via a telephone conversation, the Governor and the deputy have been having a cold war over the plans by the governor to sack top civil servants in the state.

The governor who is embarking on a civil service reform agenda had decided to retire these top civil servants, who still had some years left in service but the deputy was said to have been disturbed and deeply uncomfortable with the situation.

The deputy governor had confided in his close associates that the list of top top civil servants marked for this retirement exercise reflected a majority of up to 70 per cent from the Southern Kaduna extraction.

During the cabinet meeting, the deputy governor bared his mind and told governor El-rufai he is not in support of the exercise, he said that he cannot control the backlash that will arrive as a result of that action. Arc. Bantex was quoted as saying “I cannot go home, they will stone me”

The governor had insisted that the decision was without prejudice and in the best interest of the state but the deputy insists that on equality as his constituency already feels marginalized.

At this point the conversation became heated between the Governor and his Deputy and words were traded between both leading to Governor Elrufai landing a slap on the face of his deputy.

The deputy governor was said to have immediately taken his seat and told the governor that since having arguments and counter views has earned him a slap, he thinks the right thing to do was to let everyone know and resign.

Governor El-rufai was said ti have retorted that Bantex cannot resign and continued the meeting.

The Deputy governor who participated as the meeting continued however surprised most cabinet members present as the meeting ended.

The deputy governor was said to have caught Governor Elrufai unawares and landed him a slap and pinned him before landing another slap on the governor while the cabinet members restrained him from beating the governor up.

The security details who were not present at the meeting rushed in and restored calm.

The cabinet members also intervened and attempted to broker peace between both. According to one of them, Elrufai apologized and pleaded that the matter should not to be discussed outside the cabinet.

The SA Media and Publicity to Governor el-Rufai, Samuel Aruwan is unreachable.

First he tackled the lying commissioner, Osinbade. Now, he has began engaging in Slap me- i slap you, with his deputy. I am sure, that the media propaganda team will come to his rescue, to bury the story. But they will not address the key issue at hand, which is the temperament of the governor. One day, we will wake up, and hear that he stabbed the President. I wonder how the e-media team will spin that story

If this is true...El Rufai is biting more than he can chew especially on religous matters in the state. He had better tread carefully and maintain proper balance for peace to reign.

This EL Rufai days are number, he want to sack the Christian Top civil servant from Southern Kaduna. Christians just have to wake up like we did against boko Haram, A week after Bishop David Oyedepo declared war against boko haram, he said they should start killing each other and they started bombing mosque, infact they kill more Muslim than Christian at the end of the day.
Christians in Kaduna and even Nigeria should wake up and pray to our God let the Muslims in EL Rufai cabinet start FIGHTING each other till they impeach him in Jesus name.

This story is very true! I reside in kaduna and this is the news that has actually been trending in kaduna and guess what? Even the hausa muslims are very happy with the deputy governor right now because even the hausa muslims are not benefiting as much as they expected!!!


There is a little twist to the story we heard in our side, we heard that Hell-rufai tumbled and started somersaulting immediately (Bantex) his deputy slapped him.

The part of the somersault made me laugh my belle out. (May God have mercy on my soul)
