The two are both princes of the Kagoro Chiefdom in Kaura Local Government Area, with Bonat contesting against Gwani’s father, Jehu, for the first class traditional stool in 2006, after the death of Chief Gwamna Awan.
Gwani, of the PDP, defeated four others, including Mr Kish Adamu, former Kaduna justice commissioner, and Mr Yahaya Dadai, former Sole Administrator of Kagoro Development Area, to pick the PDP ticket in the primary elections held on December 6.
Bonat, on his part, was APC’s sole aspirant for the slot.
While Gwani has expressed confidence that the people would give him a fresh mandate having kept faith with them over the years, Bonat has insisted that there was a need for a change to make for quality representation.
Gwani told NAN in Jos on Monday that he had achieved much, especially in the area of water supply, schools repairs, youth empowerment, electricity supply and health centres.
“I was able to sink boreholes for 80 communities and that has minimized the consumption of bad water largely responsible for most of the health challenges among my largely rural constituents,” he said. -PMNews
