INTERVIEW: How we will give Jonathan the “Malawi” treatment in 2015 – Kwankwaso

Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

“Any government that cannot provide basic needs of its people means it is simply not there”.

———————————-

Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano state has stated that the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, will ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan loses the 2015 presidential election just the way President Joyce Banda of Malawi recently lost to Peter Mutharika in the general election held in May.

The governor, who spoke recently with PREMIUM TIMES Managing Editor, Musikilu Mojeed, and the Head of Northern Operations, Sani Tukur, in his lodge in Abuja, also traced the genesis of the problem between opposition governors and President Goodluck Jonathan to the outcome of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum election.

Excerpts of the interview:

PT: What is your view on how the Federal Government is handling the state of insecurity in Nigeria, especially in the north?

Kwankwaso: The issue of security is key. Any government that cannot provide basic needs of its people means it is simply not there, that is why even the International Community feels like there is no government on ground in Nigeria.

A leader from America said his government has wasted too much time waiting for a government in Nigeria that is almost non-existent. He is not a Nigerian, and that is exactly the fact of the matter.

So many people have advised this government, especially on the issue of the North East . The North East should have a special Marshall Plan to support them. Every leader has his particular challenge, when President Yar’Adua came to power he had a challenge from the South-South, in the Niger Delta and he did his best to tackle that challenge. By the grace of God the situation is much better there.

Today whether you are from the South or North, Christian or Muslim does not matter; what really matter is how to get peace back. We have seen a situation in this country where some people are raising their own flags, It doesn’t help anybody. Every square inch of this country belongs to Mr. President; it doesn’t matter what religion, culture or people they are. People are being killed, maimed and even taken away on daily basis, like needles, people just disappear.

As we speak we have thousands of Nigerians in Niger Republic, Cameroun and Chad as refugees and nobody is even talking about them. They are just there at the mercy of their hosts. These are the issues on the ground that must be tackled instead they are going from church to church to bring in sentiment on the issue.

The people being killed and stolen are both Muslims and Christians, but it took them 18 days to agree that over 270 Nigerian children were stolen. They never wanted to believe that it happened. The woman leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was even asking for their pictures, asking what their names are? They were being mischievous over the matter.

A government in a blessed and rich country like Nigeria cannot protect its citizens. Any government that cannot protect Nigerians doesn’t deserve to be in office.

Being a president is not about personal enjoyment, it also does not mean protecting some and ignoring others. Once anyone is elected as a President or a Governor, you are no more the Chairman of your party, you are no more Edwin Clark, who is the leader of the Ijaw nation, but you are the President for both who voted for you and those who did not, those who like you, and those who do not like you.

We are seeing a situation where people are at the helm of leadership but still feel that they are cheated.

PT: Let’s talk politics now. Are we likely to see more governors joining the APC?

Kwankwaso: Of course, it is possible but what I know is that whether governors join us or not, the people are already with us. I have not taken the time to go to the South to study what is happening, but I had time to study the North. In the 19 states I don’t see any state where under free and fair election, people will go and vote for the status quo. The status quo is not good for anybody because they have failed to provide the basic services to justify why the people voted for this government.

They may think they are still popular, not only do they lack the capacity, the people around them are even worse, because they don’t tell them the truth, and that is why things keep getting worst by the day.

Funny enough, they don’t even have the true position of things. As far as they are concerned, everything is ok and the country is moving in the right direction. That is what they tell the President.

Well, of course, that is not good, but politically, I think that is good for our party. They will be shocked. Nigerians will do to them what the Malawians did to their government. We will Malawi them in 2015.

Jonathan will be number three. I hope APGA and Labour will stop deceiving themselves. If they can get a good presidential candidate, he will be number three. He will be number three pursuing third term.

PT: During the controversy generated during the appointment of the new Emir of Kano, we understand the president planned to go to Kano, but when the current emir was the one who emerged, he changed his mind. As governor, were you informed that the President was visiting?

Kwankwaso: Well, someone called me and told me he was coming. But, when they realised that they were inducing crises, he refused to go.

PT: On this allegation of inducing crisis, did you on your own reach out to the president, since it became clear to you that he had a hand in what was happening?

Kwankwaso: Well, I am yet to get in touch with them, but I will get in touch with them. I am sure they will know my position even through you. I keep on advising them that in democracy, governors are not important. Who are important are the local government chairmen, councillors, press men and the ordinary people.

They should open a channel of communication. That is the responsibility of the leader. In Kano for instance, it is very easy
for me to communicate with anybody, and if I don’t want to communicate with you, there is no way you can communicate with me. The same thing applies with the president.

The mistake started long ago, but reached its peak when we had our election at the governors’ forum and elected Rotimi Amaechi to be our own chairman. The Governors forum is like a club, an association, and at the end of the day, Amaechi won by 19 votes. But he and his party, recognised the man with 16 votes. That was the beginning of our problem. We have never seen something like that. That association is not even constitutional. It is just a union of group of friends, but under this administration, even governors cannot choose their monitor. They will have to decide for us. That was the genesis of the crisis and at the end of the day, everybody was kicked out except the 16. They are the ones getting billions of naira in the name of ecological fund. He just dashes them the money and that is unfortunate.

PT: But are you protesting?

Kwankwaso: We did and we are still protesting. We can’t allow them to continue getting billions, while we get nothing. Even the appointment of an emir which is ordinarily the job of the Local Government, the President wanted to hijack it. When it comes to appointment of persons at the federal level they put our enemies who are their friends. That is not fair.

      Maybe you and Kwankwaso will impeach him abi. The greatest mistake the APC and people like you are making is under rating and underestimating the capacity of President Jonathan. You and the APC will be shocked in 2015 that when one close to you calls your name you wont hear it because you will be so shell-shocked to believe it.

    I have a dream, That one day they will tell us what they will do better if elected.
    Even if it is in just one sector.
    Yet day after day, all we get is ‘Jonathan is bad’, as if that makes them better or even good.
    A man who refused to vote for Jonathan in 2011 PDP primary, based solely on parochial sentiment that power must go to north, now pretends, it was governor’s forum election that was beginning of his tribal malice against the president.
    A lot of lies he told in this interview do not bear repeating. At the end he is inconsequential, just like he was in 2011.

    the north you are talking about is your kano and maybe sokoto or jigawa otherwise you are dreaming,Tinubu boasted more but Ekiti is now PDP,a lot of talk about free and fair election as if you believe in that phrase,com gov how was the LG election done in Kano free and fair abi?.if there is anyone or anything that is hated by people, it is the arrogance that people like you and many others in your closet display making it look as if others do not matter,you have just stated it by saying that you do not have the time to check what is happening in the South but you have done so in ypur north meaning what happens in the south does not matter,the same way buhari refused to campaign in the south believing that the northern votes alone is enough to make him the president.come 2015 we shall place a few arrogant people where they belong.Dustbin of history

      stop been silly. Buhari went to PortHarcourt, he was in Owerri etc. He went to Ibadan and the hall he had booked long time before was said to have been double booked by Dame Patience. There was serious agitation, it took intervention of GOC 2nd Mech Div to whisk him away with two truck loads of soldiers. The GOC was summoned and would have been dismissed by so called Ihejirika as if he does not know military tradition. It was Azazi that saved him by insisting he did nothing wrong. Anywhere a retd Gen faced threat the nearest barracks MUST send reinforcement. The same Nyako that is talking today was contacted by Buhari when he was not allowed to use the state house in Yola (not govt house) and he did nothing. He was entitled as a former head of state but a mere state director of SSS refused. Most of you from Southern part of Nigeria (SW,SE,SS) that are standing truth on its head will face it when the chips are down. I am yoruba, christian but hates what you guys are doing in the name of emotion, sentiments and religious bigotry.

      • paul preston

        your ranting does not vitiate the facts of the matter beeing that Kwankwaso your mentor and the said buhari are arrogant,when did buhari visit ph he may have gone to ibadan yes, but the fact remains that he caredless of southern votes,the issue is not south and north but the insults by a few northerners as if others do not matter.What is standing truth on its head did you read kwakwa interview and have you seen today’s nation is that a man who cares about you and which you should defend?Imo is apc kano is apc but the man is retaliating instead of calling his fellow party member to order,when the chips are down it is the Ekiti result that will repeat arrogance takes nobody nowhere if you care about apc tell them to comen down from their high horse we know better and we will proof it one way or the other

            And those who you claim killed Abiola and Kudirat are accepted into your fold now ( Almustapha and Mohammad Abacha). This is to show that you have the same ideology. Thanks to OBj for exposing Jonaharam’s agenda. Now also the one you always claim to be the creator and sponsor Ali Madu Sharif of Boko Haram has identified with you. This is another indication that you are all birds of the same feather. Your frustration is not helping you to see and say the truth without any bias or sentiment. You are too blinded with the love of the Dumbo Jonaharam who has nothing to show positively in terms of provision of developmental needs tothe citizens. “Being a president is not about personal enjoyment, it also does not mean protecting some and ignoring others. Once anyone is elected as a President or a Governor, you are no more the Chairman of your party, you are no more Edwin Clark, who is the leader of the Ijaw nation, but you are the President for both who voted for you and those who did not, those who like you, and those who do not like you.” RM KWANKWASO

    Nigerians at home died for lack of adequate medical attention from mere malaria infection.Nigerian graduates and youths are wallowing about our major cities streets looking for non-existence employment and ethnic/tribal/religion sentiment higher strenght nationally as Nigerians do not see each one another as brothers and sisters as Ebele Jonathan promotes massive corruption practices and disunity among Nigerians pitching South-South/East against Northerners and Yoruba people.

      (RUSSIAN security experts are worried over the possibility of the All Progressives Party (APC) taking over the reins of government in Nigeria next year, branding the party a coalition of Muslim extremists.

      The thinking in Russian political and security circles about the future of Nigeria was made known by a former presidential and Kremlin adviser, Alexander Nekrassov.

      Nekrassov, regarded globally as a political analyst and commentator, made the disclosure in a celebrated editorial opinion written for the respected Al-jazzera news channel.

      He noted that the thinking in Russia was to support President Goodluck Jonathan to continue in office and, if necessary, to extend emergency rule in the North-East base of Boko Haram and postpone the forthcoming general elections.)

            I hate to reply because your folly is appalling. There is ample evidence that Russia is complicit in the downing of Malaysia Airliner. The pictures and movements of the missile launcher, pictures showing four missiles on the launcher before, and pictures showing three missiles on the launcher after, the trajectory, the time, communication intercepts between the separatists and their Russian handlers bragging that they have shot down a plane and their regrets having discovered the fatal error and many more. Putin openly said that SE and SS Ukraine is the new Russia and will do all it takes to redraw the map. Russia stand to gain a lot because the people in those regions of Ukraine are ethnic Russians. I am not a member of any party but I am for good governance which PDP has been lacking in its 14yrs at the helm. Only idiots will buy your concocted story line whereas the whole world is furious with Russia. Nigerians don’t give a f–ck about Russia. The British and the Americans knows that GEJ is an ineffective leader who does not know what he’s doing. It took a 17yr old secondary school girl to awaken GEJ, a Port Harcourt Degree holder, and ghost president, to his responsibilities. If your brain is correct, you should have known that the only way to solve the Boko Haram menace is to see it as a collective enemy. Anything short of that will always be a disaster in progress. Does Boko Haram bombs and bullets differentiate between Christians and Muslims or between APC and PDP members?

YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING POSITIVE AND CONCRETE TO CONTRIBUTE IN THIS FORUM. IT’S ALWAYS THE SAME STUFF – APC, OBJ, BUHARI, ATIKU, SUNUSI, TINIBU, HAUSA-FULANI AND NOW TURN TO GLORIFYING THE RUSSIANS. YOU ARE A FRUSTRATED BIGOT!

      You were this close to making a good point. But, as usual, your obsessive phobia for Jonathan gets in the way of your thinking. When you say that “healthcare is archaic and at the same time Mr Ebele Jonathan & his wife,Dame Patience Jonathan frequently travel to Germany to obtain adequate medical attention on Nigerian public expense.
      Nigerians at home died for lack of adequate medical attention”, you come across as parochial and misguided into believing that the comatose state of health care in Nigeria was caused by Jonathan and Patience. Awusa people misruled this country for 38 straight years, you know.
      Where do you think Obasanjo goes for his healthcare……LUTH? What about David Mark, Nyako, Kwankwaso, Sule Lamido, Banbangida Aliu, Lamido Sanusi, Sultan of Sokoto, Tambuwal, Ibrahim Babangida, Abdulsalami, Modu Sherif, Ali Ndume, Tinubu, the late Emir of Kano and the rest of them; where do you think the go. Even, late President Yar’Adua -an awusa man- went to Saudi, but not Jonathan or Patience. It kind of eats you that President Jonathan goes abroad to see a doctor. He was inches away from dying ther before he was smuggled back in the wee hours o the fateful night. A case of what is good for the goose is not good for the gander, isn’t that?

    You suddenly remember the option of “MALAWI TREATMENT” because you found a noose hanging round your sorry neck. Obasanjo would says, “I de laf”. The love of so-called leaders like kwankwaso to wait for things to copy explains their lack of creativity and innovation. Arab Spring came and went; we are yet to have a Nigerian Spring awusas rooted for.; Tunisia came, Tunisia went. Libya came and went; India came and went. Out leaders, especially those of the awusa-north extraction, want to be copy cats of happenings in even lesser nations like Benin, as long as it promotes rapacious awusa agenda.
    But, the awusa man would always put the mayhem in immediate practice the carnage in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and re-import their genocidal export to Rwanda and the Balkans. They want to copy Sudan, but not the South-Sudan bit. Kwankwaso sees a sterling example in Malawi, where a sitting president was ousted in a vote. But that’s just as far as his myopia can lead him. Malawian almajiris were not unleashed by the losing Malawian candidate in the manner awusas would love to do for love of barbarism and bloodletting. That is not what Kwankwasos would acknowledge; it does not work for the awusa man’s power-grab mentality..
    Is Kwankwaso aware of the CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC? Could he be considering the C.A.R. TREATMENT something we should try on an accursed, wild, barbaric clan whose cup of evil is more than full? Does he think the CAR TREATMENT is overdue? Should he be the one to cherry-pick treatments we need? Kato’n gamnbari’n banza!

    ” I have not taken the time to go to the South to study what is happening,
    but I had time to study the North. In the 19 states I don’t see any
    state where under free and fair election, people will go and vote for
    the status quo.”

    Making the same mistake Buhari made. Not remembering that you want to govern Nigeria, the whole country, not just the north, which is already divided anyway. He won’t get 19 states nationally; not even in his own party’s primaries

  • jossy

    President Jonathan should run for senatorial seat in 2015. Since he has obviously lost the presidential election in advance.

    • redeem

      u do not need a sooth sayer or T B JOSHUA- to TELL YA that Zonathan has already won the 2015 election–

      • jossy

    GOVERNOR RABIU KWANKWASO IS SUFFERING FROM ACUTE MALARIA FEVER

    When a Governor is suffering from malaria …….. he should go to the hospital and get treatment !!!

    Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso should go and get treatment for malaria so that he can grant interviews that make sense … this particular interview is clearly a product of malaria hallucination.

    It is only a Governor that is suffering from malaria that will pretend that he does not know that President Goodluck Jonathan has already won the 2015 Presidential election landslide.

    • Shehu

      THANK GOD IT’S MALARIA NOT BRAIN DAMAGE LIKE YOU AND YOUR MASTER JONAHARAM HAVE. THAT’S WHY YOU CAN’T THINK WELL.

    It is Yoruba that need to (RONU) think ,what pdp have in stock for this nation for the past 15years, what can they call changes that they have made. Everybody should check their family, for the past 15years how many Graduate do they have and how many are underemployed,then what is pdp doing at the center,they are planing to bring religious into politics i am a Christian but with look of things pdp is worst party i have seen in my life they were not after development but chop -i -chop and where will this lead us ,up till today we are still importing fuel and we are among the best oil producing countries. in 2002 during my NYSC i served with NNPC ABUJA one of the director said if each state has a Refinery each, they should not praise the country but our Govt derived pleasure in importing fuel instead of building Refinery,Nigeria youth should think of the Govt that will develop the country ,provide employment for youth, provide amenities for the communities not Govt that will not see anything bad for just a minister to spend 10billion to move round ,not Govt that will be using tax payer money to rig an election or bribing law maker to impeach Governor.If all can remember ,It was Jonathan that got people sympathy Vote not pdp, but now the man is power drunk ed he forgot all his campaigned worlds.may God help Nigeria. They can not send military to go and bring back our Girl”s but they can deployed 30,000 military to Ekiti, Can any body talk of one pdp development in Yoruba Land ? do they have manifesto ? .I used to know Eleleye – Eleshin loye road in Ibadan since 1991 as a bad road, if not for Present Governor that think development is important tt could have been same.Our brother,immediate past Governor constructed a road just 2month to his exit you may not belief it 3month of new administration the road is no more motor-able again yet they want to come back to goverment .Nigeria Youth Please wake up

    “being a president is not about personal enjoyment” RM Kwankwaso. That is enough for GEJ to reflect on.

  • Mosaku 147

    Why are most people thinking APC will field a northerner as it candidate? What if,just what if they present a candidate from the south and a Christian?

  • GbemigaO

    Lol. They gave your enemies who are their friends juicy appointments. Do you, Kwankaso gives your enemies juicy appointments. #double talk

  • Face the truth

    Then you will wonder why the insecurity in the north will not end when the leaders of the North are capitalizing on it??? GEJ is doing his best. The other day he comissioned a RICE plant in Nassarawa state, GDP of Nigeria is on the steady rise, more the Federal Government is sponsoring more Nigerians to further their education abroad to make Nigeria a better place, Google Nigeria on the internet and u will see a lot of improvments. If these govt like, let them continue sponsorin insecurity in their varrious states, if they dont know, they r only fooling themselves. GEJ has good intentions and needs our support to make Nigeria a better place. The insecurity in the North can only be resolved if govts like this one fights against it and not use it as a fault of GEJ. Afterall, GEJ is ruling all of Nigeria and there is calmness in other parts. If some northern states refuse to support the FG to fight against terrorism then no success will be eveident there. These govts should be rest assured that the seed they are planting today to cause confussion will only grow up to be a monster to hunt them 2morrow.

    This Man Kwankwaso is delusion. You had time to study the 19 northern states but no time for the southern states and you want to Malawi the President come 2015, you are really delusional and you need cure.

    It is simple but some blind, dumb and deaf always uses their Mogalue to support an incompetent President who came with the Devil face covers with religious and become a disaster, disgrace and betrays the trust of Christian families in the North. Our vote is only for a northerner, be it Christian, Muslim or pagan. We understand without bias what President Yar’adua did was for all with no sentiment and we also understand that Boko Haram totally quenched by his authority. What brought it again? only in the north especially north east that we can not go to school, we can not go our farms, we can not go to our markets, we can not sleep in our houses, we can not move freely on our streets, we can not associate among our religious like before, we can not go to our churches/mosques to observe prayers like before, both our Christians and Muslims brothers can not have a breathing space in the south-south/south-east, to cut it shot, what a deadly human being is GEJ? Kwakwaso is 100% right and I urges all Nigerians to join hands with him to save this country from the hands of this Terrorist (Gej + Asari Dokubos).
