APC, PDP field brothers in Kastina by-election

Ahead of Saturday’s senatorial by-election in President Muhammadu Buhari’s Kastina North senatorial district, the two candidates of the two major political parties in the election, APC and PDP, are brothers from the same father.

A presidential aide, Bashir Ahmed, in a tweet said, Ahmad Babba Kaita (APC) and Kabir Babba Kaita (PDP), have same father but different mothers.

The by-election for the Daura Senatorial District was necessitated by the death of Senator Mustapha Bukar on April 4, 2018.

The PDP candidate is the elder brother and a retired Customs officer while the APC flagbearer is a serving member of the House of Representatives representing Kusada/Ingawa/Kankia Federal Constituency.
