Kwankwaso Lashes Jonathan ‘Only Hawks’ll Vote You Again’

share on:

Kano state governor and presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rabi’u Kwankwaso, took a hilarious swipe at President Goodluck Jonathan during an interview session with VANGUARDNG on issues ranging from his presidential ambition to the state of the nation’s economy and other matters.

When asked ‘What gives you the impression that if you become APC’s candidate you can defeat the incumbent?’

He replied: “I don’t know why (President Goodluck) Jonathan and I collected our nomination forms the same day. Maybe the indication is that both of us are going to slug it out in 2015, and once that happens, I am sure you know the answer, he is going to lose.

“I don’t see anybody who will be happy to vote for him apart from the hawks in Abuja and of course, those contractors and others who are stealing crude oil and oil money. These are the ones that will be happy to vote for him again so that they can continue milking the economy of this country. But the masses, the talakawas of Kano, Enugu, Zamfara, and Bayelsa will be very happy to have a change, a change that will guarantee security of lives and properties of Nigerians, no matter where they live, no matter their religion or ethnicity. These are going to be the issues in 2015, security, economy, not minding the fabricated figures that come from Abuja, indicating that all is well. All cannot be well where you have crises, where you have insecurity, where people are scared of bringing their investments into the country. All these cannot help the economy anywhere in the world.

“We have all these issues on the ground and certainly, sentiments will not work in 2015. All the antics of dividing the country based on religion, based on North and South, based on ethnicity and class will certainly fail in 2015. And I want to advice INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission) to be cautious, because somebody was telling me about suspected tricks of INEC using computer to help a particular political party in 2015.

But we will keep our eyes open and make sure that every single vote counts next year.”



I am but your herald boy in the art of the pen.. An eccentric Environmental Biologist smouldered in the glorious epiphany of online journalism. If you ever find my article unduly insipid, sue me and i’ll refund you...


  1. Kwankwaso, I think my pride about you is that, you are somebody who hasn’t aggressive tendency; but give and depends on God mercy, to lead without an abuse acts, so said and learned from must people in/from Kano….

  2. Kwakwanso as a presidential aspirant who is this foul mouthed about the incumbent? Oga is that part of the morals you’d be passing on to both young and old and Nigerians in diaspora, seeking to emulate, you if God helps, that is if GOD helps you to assume that seat.

  3. Kwankoso is not aggressive, He is a good leader who is not afraid of anybody no matter how big or small, rich or poor, oga(boss) or servant etc. Gov Rabiu K is only telling the TRUTH.
