Asari Dokubo and PDP Now Funding B/Haram Against Buhari – NCNDEA
The umbrella body of notable Ex-militant Leaders in the Nigeria’s South – South geopolitical zone, the National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A, has condemned what it described as Asari Dokubo’s tirades against President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing him of
being behind the blood thirsty Boko Haram insurgents saying; Asari Dokubo knows as well as every other Nigerians that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, under former President Goodluck Jonathan, funded the insurgents against the Nigerian state using it as an ATM machine to fleece the national treasury adding that Dokubo was one of the beneficiaries of the immediate past regime.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja over the weekend, the Coalition through its national President, Israel Akpodoro, lampooned Dokubo who is the Coordinator, Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, NDPVF, saying he’s paranoid because President Buhari has disappointed “Jonathan’s bootlickers” in the Delta Niger region who thought he won’t make headway in the region but has been able to open a new vista of development in the region.
The statement challenged Dokubo to name the achievements of his kinsman when he was in power other than brigandage, corruption of immeasurable proportion, oil bunkery, Kidnapping, gangsterism and gross official recklessness asking him – Dokubo to name the source of his wealth. “Who is Asari Dokubo? Where’s he coming from and does he do for a living? I know him as a dummy, unserious character who talks from both sides of his mouth, good at grandstanding and demagogry. We know him as one of the major forces who derailed Jonathan’s administration.”
In the contrary, the Coalition stated that President Buhari has shown his leadership qualities as a visionary leader and in clinical efficiency in less than two year has been able defeat the dreaded Boko Haram, NDA and other ethnic militias founded by Jonathan to thwart the efforts of the current administration.
While Jonathan held sway, the Urhobo-born pro Buhari ex-militant said the Boko Haram enterprise flourished like any blue chip industry with his Fat belly army of corrupt security chiefs smiling to the banks on daily basis at the detriment of the people and security. Weapons were procured for the insurgents by agents of state to prolong the war for officials of that unfortunate government to enrich themselves.
“In the Niger Delta, Jonathan and his kinsmen flourished in the business of oil and gas bunkery, sea piracy and sundry crimes in the region. In the thieving mechandise, the then Vice President and other senior officials of that government were all involved. We are unmindful of the fact that Jonathan led the worst government in the history of Nigeria.
Dokubo should cover his head in shame.” The die-hard Buhari supporter stated.
Akpodoro who described Dokubo as a dummy says he knows nothing other than criminalities and flippancy especially when he is broke added that, Nigerians arewitnesses to the fact that Dokubo was one of Jonathan’s attack dogs against President Buhari adding that he –Dokubo before and after the Presidential election not only threatened to cause chaos if Buhari won the election but went ahead to call on ex-militants to return to the creeks at a meeting in Yenagoa under the Chairmanship of governor Seriake Dickson, with senior officials of the then Jonathan’s administration in attendance.
Rather than dish out lies in the name of freedom of speech, Akpodoro alleged that Dokubo is one of the overseers of the notorious rag-tag ethnic militia; the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA who he said was founded by Jonathan and the PDP to sabotage oil and gas facilities in the Delta in vengeance for “his humiliation” at the polls adding that recent developments have shown that the Avengers are tied to the apron string of the former president, Chief E.K. Clark…With Dokubo and Government Ekpemukpolo, a.k.a Tompolo as field commanders.
“Aren’t these people ashamed that on assumption of office President Buhari commenced the clean up of Ogoni land a project that didn’t make sense to Jonathan while he held sway. Today, the second Niger bridge is under construction as against the bait status accorded it by the lip service regime of Jonathan. If Avengers come out to bomb a single pipeline this coalition shall recommend Odi treatment in such area.”
The Coalition further queried the moral rectitude under which Dokubo calls out the President at will without recourse to the honour and respect that goes with the office of a President of the federal Republic warning that should he be arrested, he should know that he may not be lucky like he was when in the gulag under the administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, saying he has shown enough disrespect for the office of the President of the federal Republic of Nigeria.
Akpodoro called on security agencies to go after Dokubo to forestall further reckless vilification of the president if only to put an end to incessant calls for war questioning the rationale behind the call on the people of Southern Kaduna to take arms in vengeance adding that the people of southern Kaduna are peace loving and won’t heed a call for war by a mere miscreant, someone with unfortunate history of demagogry and criminal grandstanding noting that allowing Dokubo to carry on unchallenged means encouraging more reckless attacks on the president and by extension insulting the sensibilities of the Nigerian people.
