High quality management – Doguwa’s startling instance

High quality management – Doguwa’s startling instance

ONCE we consigned logic to the rubbish can, it adopted that Nigeria would maintain startling the world together with her management selections. Alhaji Alhassan Ado Doguwa of Doguwa/Tudun Wada Federal Constituency, Majority Chief of the Home of Representatives, is proof in case you wanted one.

He has our consideration not for any sterling legislative efficiency. It isn’t his fault that we refused to concentrate when he served us discover in 2019 as he was being sworn in for his fourth time period – he turned up along with his 4 wives and 27 kids. Extra was on the way in which, he assured.

The quantity has crawled to 4 wives and 28 kids. Many thought he would have achieved extra in 4 years to match the household file. Doguwa informed us his father had 40 kids and was productive into his 80s.

Age is on his aspect. He’s solely 57, and over two scores wanting his father’s age. He wants solely 12 extra kids to equal his father’s file, on his technique to a brand new household mark.

We must always rightly anticipate extra from Doguwa although we had been clueless that his conjugal prowess and the resultant numbers had been political instruments. Final 12 months he boasted that the APC presidential candidate Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Jagaban Borgu would have the votes of his family. It couldn’t have been 33 votes until you’re suggesting that Doguwa promotes under-aged voting. Allegations in opposition to him are completely different.

He’s on trial for allegedly killing 16 individuals through the run-up to his latest tenure within the Home of Representatives. His retort is not any simpler. “I’ve by no means killed a fly not to mention kill 16 individuals as alleged by the opposition social gathering”.

A person so variety to Kano’s disturbing flies can’t kill human beings, that’s his logic. Would a person with 28 kids be wanting serving to arms to kill flies?

Let it not be that he’s alleging that these of us who kill flies with reckless abandon are potential homicide suspects. He shouldn’t, in spite of everything, we aren’t his colleagues within the Home of Representatives.

Doguwa hangs his finest level about his management qualities on the administration of his household. 4 wives, no divorce, and 28 kids, who’ve tasked his temperament to no antagonistic penalties. No imply feat it doesn’t matter what else chances are you’ll not like about him.

We must always know that he’s one of the best candidate for the place. Which contenders posses these qualities? If there are, why are they in hiding.

Serial monogamists, divorcees, singles, these unskilled in managing 4 wives and the 28 benchmark of youngsters ought to go away the race for Doguwa. Name his stance ridiculous at your individual threat. He will not be a Senator however he’s distinguished and has created a definite benefit for himself within the race.

Doguwa, additionally known as Alhassan Ado Garba, received to the Home of Representatives in 1992, supporting Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso to be Deputy Speaker. In 2000 he was appointed Particular Adviser to the Kano State Governor on Atmosphere and later Particular Adviser on Governmental Affairs, and Political Get together Affairs to Senate Presidents Chief Adolphus Wabara and Senator Ken Nnamani.

He returned to the Home of Representatives in 2007 with re-elections in 2011, 2015, 2019, and 2023. His blooming relationship with Femi Gbajabiamila who he succeeded as Chief Whip crashed when Gbajabiamila misplaced the competition for Speaker to Yakubu Dogara. Gbajabiamila anticipated that Doguwa would hand him again the Chief Whip place. Doguwa refused.

Entitlement is a part of his credentials together with claims that he stepped down in 2019 for Gbajabiamila to be Speaker, and the succession sequence from Chief Whip to Speaker, favours him.

Why would Doguwa pitch his household measurement forward of his detailed expertise, rating, and his acceptable to his colleagues? Does he even do not forget that promoting himself as a terrific, loyal social gathering man was extra essential than his conjugal prowess?

Doguwa graduated with a first-class in Mass Communication from Bayero College, Kano. He wouldn’t challenge these high quality and there could possibly be explanations.

We have a tendency to understand seen “qualities” extra. Anybody who can get a household that measurement into a photograph body deserves commendation for organisation. Please return in time to how attempting household picture periods was once. These had been households nowhere near Doguwa’s measurement.

Solely a genius would muster names for 28 kids. I assume he remembers every of his kids by identify. And he can recognise them all the way down to their moms and their quantity within the flourishing household tree.

Does he use a household WhatsApp group to name household conferences. His expenditure on air time and knowledge may run some conceited households for a 12 months or extra.

What number of buses do they should journey? If they’re to fly, few airways wouldn’t run out of seats for them. Being a person of means, he could constitution an plane with ample seats for the household

Have you ever contemplated the logistics to ship meals, drinks, cooking gear, utensils, clothes, furnishings, bedding, education, medical care, monetary dispensations? No person ought to neglect housing.

Meal occasions would include their very own challenges. Think about, regardless of how fleetingly, the array of workers deployed to get meals prepared. Doguwa is a good employer of labour. Once more, he decides to not brag about such miniscule achievement.

Would Doguwa’s distinctive, family-centred expertise not translate to frothy legislative management?

There are extra considerations. How would Nigeria present for a four-wife, 28 kids and counting household? Doguwa would have privileges that embody medical journeys overseas for him and household. The Structure can’t anticipate all the things. We must always word that any try and disqualify Doguwa on foundation of his beloved household could be discriminatory, and unconstitutional.

It’s apparent that Doguwa’s household pedigree drains him. He has no cares or worries about households round him that can’t dwell their easy lives due to insecurity and the results of leaderships reckoning their achievements the way in which Doguwa does.

We, nonetheless, must reward Doguwa’s candour. He parades his household achievements and approximates his successes to the talent units he would want to guide the 360-member Home of various tendencies, stand as Nigeria’s quantity 4 citizen who beneath sure circumstances could possibly be the President.

Doguwa is a examine on issues of significance to a few of our leaders. The shock could be if his colleagues don’t elect him the Speaker.
