Nigeria Will Be History If I’m Arrested – Dokubo-Asari

I have ignored Asari Dokubo in hopes that all the hot air he is blowing will somehow just dissipate and we can all get on with the business of facing other challenges but apparently that is not even about to happen so…sigh…here it is. I trust we all remember this is the person championing President Goodluck Jonathan‘s cause at the moment, the same person who has said there will be hell to pay if the President is voted out in 2015? Notice that in the article he specifically dares the “…leaders of NORTHERN NIGERIA…” is this what we are deteriorating to? Is President Goodluck Jonathan Nigeria‘s President or President of the Niger Delta? What is going on? Where is this man getting his guts from?

Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer ForceAlhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has dared the  House of Representatives and leaders of northern Nigeria to arrest him if they can.

Dokubo-Asari, who spoke with journalists on Wednesday evening in Abuja, said he stood by his words that there would  be no peace if Jonathan is not reelected in 2015.

He was responding to calls by members of the House, Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State and northern leaders, saying the leaders were cowards if he was not arrested.

The former President of Ijaw Youth Council  also added that any attempt to arrest him would make Nigeria “a history”, asking why those calling for his arrest turned deaf ears when some northern leaders like former Military Head of State Maj.-Gen Mohamadu Buhari, Alhaji Lawal Kaita and a former member of the House of Representatives, Farouk Aliyu, among others.

He said, “I stand by my statement which I made in my early press conference. There will be no peace, not only in the Niger Delta, but everywhere, if Goodluck Jonathan is not president by 2015.

“I want to refresh your memories with comments made by these northerners, who had in the time past threatened war and break-up of Nigeria.

“In 2010, one Lawal Kaita said and I quote: ‘Anything short of a Northern President is tantamount to stealing our Presidency. Jonathan has to go and he will go. Even if he uses the incumbency power to get his nomination on the platform of the PDP, he would be frustrated out…The North is determined, if that happens, to make the country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan or any other Southerner who finds his way to the seat of power on the platform of the PDP against the principle of the party’s zoning policy’.

“Today insurgent groups, in furtherance to Kaita’s call a’re wreaking havoc, attacking military barracks and seizing weapon, but we will not sit and watch. Kaita made this statement, nobody arrested or call for the arrest of this fellow,  today he is walking free.

“Buhari made this statement in 2011, he was never arrested and nobody ever called for his arrest. In other countries, former leaders are being tried, but here, a man who overthrew a legitimate government, continues to threaten us with blood and nothing has happened.”

He added, “I am not afraid of arrest. I am saying it bold and clear without mincing  words, that the consequences of my arrest, Nigeria will be history.

“The last time Obasanjo arrested me, my arrest reduced Nigeria oil production to 700,000 barrels per day.  This time, it will reduce it to zero barrel, and we will match violence with violence, intrigues with intrigues. We are ready for them. Goodluck Jonathan will complete his tenure of two terms, whether they like it or not.

“I am daring them to arrest me if they can. If they don’t, they are cowards and shame on them.”

  1. If there were democracy in Nigeria statement that Asari made cannot be given any degree of concern,but there is increased awareness so let us wait till 2015,Who nows,it is only God that knows tomorrow.God bless Nigeria.

    • Asari is nobody, an emty illiterate, reprehensive in person & character who came to limelight at d adventure of d confused Jonathan as president and his ill-humored illiciness is escalating to alarming propotion without any reaction, making him; Asari to believe that he has d monopoly of violence which is false, time shall tell. By 2015, by God’s willing, Jonathan will be defeated head and tail, Nigeria will still be one, and this thing call Asari shall not risk a word. He will be cut 2 size & his furnaces will be quenched as well. Let him get d hint. That is my position, and time a great healer of all wounds shall soon uncover who lies. Asari or myself. For now the matter rests with the president.He is the man with a sense of restraint. As according to John Ruskin; ” The man who says to one, go, and he goeth, and to another, come, and he cometh, has, in most cases, more sense of constraint & difficulty than the man who obeys him.”
