The deputy governorship candidate, Samuel Gomna, was a former executive Chairman of Tafa Local Government Council under the Suleja emirate council.
Kantigi, during his remarks, said the nominee was successful after due consultations and guidance devoid of sentiments or discrimination toward the progress of the less privileged people in the State.

In his reaction, Samuel Gomna accused the ruling APC Government in the country of paying lip service to ending insurgency and assured that his joint ticket with Alhaji Isah Liman Kantigi’s incoming administration in the state will bring to an end the current insecurity challenges bedevilling both the state and the country at large.
The State’s party leader, Senator Zainab Kure while congratulating the candidates, urged the party faithful to see it as a task ahead and the need to work hard to ensure the party’s victory come 2023 general elections.
