A presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso on Wednesday said President Goodluck Jonathan is the easiest president to unseat.
In an interview with journalists in Ilorin as gathered by PUNCH Newspaper, the Kwara State capital after his arrival for the APC governors’ meeting, he stated that the country is not being well governed.
He said insecurity, corruption, religious and ethnic cleavages had taken centre stage in Nigerian politics.
Kwankwaso who is currently Kano State governor said Nigeria needs good leadership at all levels of government.
He added that it is necessary to have in 2015 a leader who will instill discipline and demonstrate the capacity to effect needed changes in the polity and national governance.
He also said he was not intimidated by other APC president aspirants such as a former Head of State, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) and a former Vice President, Alhaji Abubabakar Atiku.
He stated that the APC will defeat the Peoples Democratic Party in 2015 general elections.
Kwankwaso said, “Jonathan is the easiest president to unseat. Many people are not happy. There is pervading poverty in the land and insecurity is another factor.
“As I speak with you some people are on the hills, in the forest, under mountains taking refuge; they are internally displaced. On Monday we sent six trucks of relief materials to our people in refuge camps in Niger Republic.
“Unfortunately we have leaders in this country who have divided the county along religious and ethnic lines. All other countries are making progress but here we are being fed with statistics that cannot be verified. I think Jonathan should be happy if we unseat him because it will help him to go and rest.
“Change is possible once you get the right agent of change. What has happened in Kano state for instance has never happened and what made it possible was that the people had a new governor in 2011; it was that simple. We need people who are disciplined in Nigeria; people who mean what they say and stick to it.” raves over this.
“But in any case I have said it before that PDP will rule for only 16 years and that 16 years will lapse by May 2015. They will pack out by 2015 and that is it.”
