According to him in the context of Nigerian politics is hardly you find a straight forward person who level of integrity is not questionable.

“I’m not happy of the development because our country is corrupt to the extend that  the people who are good will be blackmail of doing the bad thing. Our Politics in Nigeria is a game believe in the outside world you must be bad, evil,becoming partner in crime to commit all sort of crime against humanity and most a times is even the most unqualified that will call upon to contest for  elective positions.

It’s on record for the first time Adamawa state produced the SGF,on record for the first time Christian in the whole of Northern Nigeria to be called upon for this noble assignment. I think some people are playing with our intelligence and we are losing the rare privilege. ” Said Leneken

Kanwe has been the Original and principal tribe and language in Michika local government which was created in 1976. It is located in the northern axis of the state and is bordered on the East by the Republic of Cameroon . Journals written by Dr Usman Aliyu an ABU historian,that Michika is the corrupted word for Mwe-ci-ka which is the Kamwe Language for "creeping in silently". Oral history has it that Michika was founded around the late 17th century by Kwada Kwakaa who was a hunter hunting on Lions, leopards in the Michika hills. "Mwe" in the Kamwe language means heaven or hills. While "Ci-ka" means creep. Kwada Kwakaa was a heroic Kamwe prince from Kuli in Nkafamiya.

The town was seized by the Boko Haram Islamic terrorists with the connivance of some Michika residence in September 2014 but the town was re-captured by the Nigerian military on the 29th of January 2015. President Goodluck Jonathan happily announced re-capture of Michika Town from Boko Haram Islamic terrorists on Thursday the 29th of January 2015. He made the announcement while on campaign tour of Adamawa State. It is a special privilege for Michika and shows the President's concern for the Kamwe Land in particular.
