According to Asari, the governor’s purported romance with the North to work against President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid, is akin to betrayal of the people of the Niger Delta.
Addressing a news conference in Abuja at the weekend, Dokubo, who is leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, NDPVF, said:
“Rotimi Amaechi has been making disparaging statements against the person of President Goodluck Jonathan. He went to Kano State and declared there that he would contest 2015 presidential election as a running mate to a northern aspirant. He is free to do so, but the South-South will not allow traitors among us.
“If Amaechi has singled himself out as a traitor, he will be treated as a traitor; there is nothing anybody can do about it. Now that we have come out of slavery, nobody can take us back into slavery, it is not possible.
“If they like, let them ‘settle him’ and Goodluck, but we, the people of the Niger Delta, will not ‘settle’ and allow a traitor in our midst.”
