Asari Dokubo a former President of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) and the founder of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, has scolded President Goodluck Jonathan for condemning the attack on former head of state General Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking yesterday in Abuja Asari Dokubo debunked the speculations that he paid those that who tried to carry out assassination attempt On General Buhari.
According to Dokubo he said; “I think it is unfortunate that the President made such statement.”
“It’s very unfortunate that a President of a country will be promoting one or two individuals over and above 80 people and others who have been slaughtered by Boko Haram. For me, the President ought not to have made such statement.”
On issue that he planned to kill Buhari, Asari said, “I didn’t pay anybody. I have never paid anybody because I have no cause to kill Buhari. He is of no threat to me. He is of no threat to Goodluck. And I don’t operate a tweet account.
“I phoned the SSS Director of Operations immediately I got the report and drew his attention to what is going around. I told him that my lawyer and I are writing a petition. But he told me that there was no such thing. The person arrested never said so.”
Commenting on the claims that he was working to destroy the North, he said, “We all knew that in 2011, Goodluck lost in all the North-eastern and North-Western states except Adamawa and Kaduna States. Politically, Goodluck is not expecting the votes of these states if he is going to calculate. These states can be referred to states that are hostile to him.
“I’m an Ijaw man. An injury to one Ijaw is an injury to all. I will continue to defend Goodluck Jonathan because I’m an Ijaw man. I have no apology. I’m an Ijaw nationalist. You can call me an Ijaw bigot. I don’t care. But to say I work for Goodluck is the highest form of stupidity. I don’t work for Goodluck. I don’t belong to the PDP.”
