Asari-Dokubo cries out, “Buhari will victimize Niger Delta”

Former Niger-Delta militant, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo
has threatened to return to to the creeks with other militants, following the
defeat of President Goodluck Jonathan at the just concluded presidential polls.

The Alhaji who hails from Bayelsa state described
the voting pattern which brought President-elect, Buhari in as a gang up of the
North and South West against minority South-South and South-East.
In a statement issued  by Asari-Dokubo’s spokesperson, Rex Anighoro,
he described the voting pattern as unfair because it majority ethnic group,
emasculated the minorities.
He also expressed fear of being victimized by the
government of the President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari.
In his words, 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 non-existent as regional
gang-ups and supremacy is symbolic with this victory.”
He further said, “While President Jonathan enjoys
his moments and basks in the euphoria of a new 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 is an establishment 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 for

“Yes indeed, to an extent, he was a mitigating
factor in self-determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical. This mitigation
he seems to have willingly repudiated. The days coming will be critical. We
shall study all the conditions and consult widely before determining the way forward
for our collective existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall
either drive the quest of integration or further separate us.”
