Nigeria will break up soon: Asari-Dokubo
For the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, it is just a matter of time before Nigeria will break up.
He said that the country will soon go the way of Soviet Union and the rest that have broken up.
Asari-Dokubo is not alone in that thinking, as may just be echoing a prognostic report of US agency had projected that the Nigerian project may have crumbled by 2015.
The former militant was emphatic that he never believed in Nigerian project.
The NDPVF leader, who spoke to journalists in Abuja, berated President Goodluck Jonathan over his statement that Nigeria would have boiled if former Head of State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, General Muhammadu Buhari, had died in last Wednesday's bomb blast in Kaduna.
Asari-Dokubo said the President's statement was unnecessary, adding that placing the life of one Nigerian above another is wrong.
He said: “I do not work for Jonathan.
“What the President said was wrong.
“The life of Buhari is not more important than 87 people that died in that blast.”
Asari-Dokubo also dissed the insinuation that he paid the alleged mastermind of the blast N5 million to kill Buhari, saying that the former head of state posed no threat to him..
He said he will from next week lead a protest in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, to demand and ensure that Buhari is arrested by the Department of State Security.
He said: “I did not pay anybody to carry out any assassination attempt on Buhari.
“I do not have anything against him.
“He is not a threat. “He will fail in 2015.
“For the records, I do not operate a Twitter account and anyone saying I tweeted that there will be more attacks is only using my name.”
Asari-Dokubo raised the alarm that all the calculated attacks on him are geared towards shutting him up ahead of the 2015 presidential election.
He said: “They want to silence me because they know the role I will play in 2015.
“They have also sponsored reports in Benin Republic that I am the person financing Boko Haram.
“Another Islamic scholar also said I am the one sponsoring Boko Haram to destroy the North on behalf of President Jonathan.
“The deputy leader or deputy minority in the House of Representatives said I spoke on behalf of President Jonathan.
“That means Buhari is the commander-in-chief of Boko Haram in the North.
“His allies came out and made inflammatory statements during the 2011 elections.”
