Kaduna - Two brothers – Rep Gideon Gwani and Chief Charles Bonat - are contesting for the Kaura Federal Constituency seat.
The contestants are both princes of the Kagoro Chiefdom in Kaura Local Government.
Bonat had contested against Gwani’s father, Jehu, for the first class traditional stool in 2006, after the death of Gwamna Awan.
Gwani, of the PDP, defeated four others, including Kish Adamu, a former Kaduna Commissioner for Justice, and Yahaya Dadai, a former Sole Administrator of the Kagoro Development Area, to pick the PDP ticket on December 6.
Bonat, on his part, was the APC’s sole aspirant for the slot.
While Gwani has expressed confidence that the people would give him a fresh mandate, Bonat insists that there should be change.
Gwani said in Kaura on Monday that he had achieved much as a House of Representatives member, especially in the area of water supply, schools renovation, youth empowerment and healthcare.

"I was able to sink boreholes for 80 communities; that has minimised consumption of bad water largely responsible for most of the health challenges among my largely rural constituents,’’ he said.
However, Bonat said that if elected, he would represent the constituency better and improve the well-being of the constituents.
Meanwhile, Dauda Peter, the Waziri of Kagoro, said that there was nothing to worry about the contest.
"The two of them are brothers; so, whoever wins is a son of the palace.
"The chiefdom has no official candidate; they are both our children, and we can say it is a family affair.’’ Peter said.
