Introduction to Kowanne tsunstu ( a program that gives the people of katsina an avenue to air their opinions). i am kabob Sa’idu Bahaushe Dandagoro, the presenter.
Alhaji Tijjani Zangon Daura, aka Sani Dan Kawu, has aired his opinion about the reasons he stopped supporting Buhari and why a faction was created in Katsina State because some people have hijacked the government, and that Buhari too is infallible.
Tajjani Zangon Daura: My name is Tijjani Zangon Daura, aka Tijjanin Dan Kawu, I am about 71 years old. I did my primary school in Zangon Daura, we were the pioneer Secondary school in Daura that was established in 1958. I started my post-primary in Dustinma, after it was closed I came back to the craft school for 3 years then proceeded to the Technical College in Kano. When civil war broke, schools were closed and students were transferred to, some Nigerian railing, some P&T, some Nigerian Airways, but I declined, I then chose the private sector because I wanted to come back and continue my education. By then it was only UAC, they took me in 1967 to Lagos, that was my first time and there was only one bridge then, after working for like 2 years then went to Yaba College of Technology and I fought with a teacher then left and came back to the company and continued my job, at the end, the sent mew to England for 6 months and I learned advertisement, since it was a media company, because that was my work. During my stay in England I stayed in London, Coventry, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, leeds, Cardiff, I walked all those places barefooted looking for advertisement. I did 2 courses at Impororecial posters and mid and Alms, they taught me how to change black to white. That is my working life history.
In politics, I once joined NEPU in Kano at Technical college in 1964, during NEPU and NPC at the shop of Yakasai’s father writing poem for NEPU which they will give us 3 cents if we do it with a good handwriting. When I came back here I started clubs and associations which shocked some politicians, we will talk about that later.
Presenter: Thank you. You were among those that created a faction in Kaduna, criticism followed and you specifically was mentioned and insulted, why you?
Tijjani Yakasai: Everybody knows those that formed the faction, I wasn’t part of it. Those that did it are Senator Yar’adua and others. He called me telling me “ sir we have chosen you among those we want to come and greet at home to explain to you what made us do that. Then I asked him where are you? He said they were at Dr. Usman Bugaje’s house, then I said let me come then.
When I came I realized that those who were at the gathering were actually those people who have helped Masari at some point in his life. I have never helped Masari. In fact, in 2011, I left Buhari because of him. Because it was unjust to bring him at that time. So I said to them, are you trying to repeat by doing this/ we all smiled. Then I felt what they did is what I should have done.
