NIGERIA: Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso Biography And Profile

Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was born on 21st October 1956 at Kwankwaso town in Madobi Local Government Area, Kano State. He had his early primary education in his hometown before moving to Wudil of Craft School (1970-1972) and from there to Kaduna Polytechnic where he did his National and Higher National Diploma.

From there he went on to Middlesex Polytechnic (1982-1983) and Loughborough University of Technology (1983 -1985) in the UK where he got his Masters Degree in Water Engineering.

Engr. Musa Kwankwaso served as a civil servant for 17 years in various capacities in Kano, especially at the Kano State Water Resources and Engineering Construction Agency (WRECA), where he rose through the ranks to become Principal Engineer.

His active party political life started with his election as a member of House of Representatives in 1992 representing Madobi Federal Constituency. His 1992 subsequent election as Deputy Speaker in the House brought him to the limelight of national politics. This was of course truncated by military coup.

In 1994 Muhammad Rabiu Musa was elected delegate to the constitutional conference which fashioned out the constitution that later ushered in the Fourth Republic.

Under that dispensation, he contested and won the governorship of Kano State which he governed from 1999- 2003. He failed to win re-election in 2003 and was subsequently appointed Minister of Defence under President Obasanjo. Advisor to President on Darfur and Somalia and member NDPC representing North West.

In spite of everything, he went back into the ring in the 2011 gubernatorial poll and won the election, thus staging a comeback to the governorship seat in the populous and sophisticated state of Kano.
