South-West, North ganged up against the South-South, South-East - Asari-Dokubo


Niger-Delta militant, Asari-Dokubo, has said that with President Jonathan's defeat in the just concluded presidential election, he and other militants might have to go back to the creeks.

Asari-Dokubo, who is from Bayelsa state as Jonathan, said the South-West and the North ganged up against the South-South and South-East geo-political zone.

Asari Dokubo in a statement through his spokesperson, Rex Anighoro, lamented  how unfair it is for the minorities to be emasculated by the majority ethnic groups.

He expressed fear about the government of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, saying he would be vicious.

Asari-Dokubo said: "The conditions that advanced the need to embrace the creeks have been sadly re-energised, it is clear that a vicious government who may maim and murder the voice of the so called minorities may have just been birthed.
"Indeed integration is nonexistent as regional gang ups and supremacy is symbolic with this victory."

You will recall Asari had in January said he and his colleagues would wreak havoc if Jonathan lost e election.

Asari-Dokubo said since Jonathan had lost the election, ex-militants would hold meetings to decide the next line of action.

He said,"While President Jonathan enjoys his moments and basks in the euphoria of a now world renowned statesman having congratulated Muhammadu Buhari, we must quickly be reminded that our struggle was never about Jonathan or about the presidency.
"President Jonathan was a beneficiary of our struggle, our sweat and blood that many bled and died for, he was never in the struggle and he can never wish away our collective march forward for statesmanship."
"Yes indeed to an extent he was a mitigating factor in self determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical, this mitigation he seem to have willingly repudiated. The days coming will be critical, we shall study all the conditions and consult widely before determining the way going forward for our collective existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the quest of integration or further separate us."
