The Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to caution former Niger Delta warlord, Alhaji Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari on his recent comments on the 2015 elections and threats of war if President Jonathan does not win re-election.
Afenifere noted that Dokubo was doing more harm than good to the President.
National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin who made the organisation’s position known, said: “People like Asari Dokubo are doing more harm than any good to President Jonathan.
“For the Ijaw nation that Asari speaks for, they are only located in Bayelsa State out of 36 states in the country and I don’t see how the Ijaws can make somebody the president of Nigeria. Asari Dokubo should know that when they are talking about the election of the President of Nigeria, it is not the election of a militant group, where guns are what wins the presidency.”
Odumakin rather advised that “getting the president of Nigeria is about negotiating with other groups within Nigeria, getting consensus and not threatening.”
