Even before the 2015 presidential elections have held, former Niger Delta militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has already won.
Asari, who spoke at the burial ceremony of Late Princess Preba Abigail Prince Ekineh, the ex-militant’s grandmother, organized by his disbanded group, Niger Delta People’s Salvation and Volunteer Front, NDSVF, at Buguma in Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State, said it is not possible for the incumbent president, who also hails from the Niger Delta region, to lose the election that returns him for a second term in office.
According to VANGUARD, Asari insisted that Pesident Jonathan must win the election by whatever means, even as he disclosed that measures have been put in place for the success of the election in favour of the incumbent.
He also spoke on political developments in Rivers State, warning that the high level of injustice currently playing out will soon backfire.
According to him, power should not reside in one ethnic group only, advocating that it should be rotated among all the different ethnic nationalities that make up the state. He specifically called for power to be shifted to the Ogoni ethnic nationality.
Asari said: “2015 Goodluck Jonathan will win. In whatever way they want him, he will win. I am not afraid of anybody. My confidence is that he has already won, but in River state I don’t know because there is injustice in Rivers state.
“The injustice in Rivers state is that one set of People cannot rule. Rivers state is a multiethnic state and all the ethnic nationalities must have access to government. So whoever is encouraging this perfidy does not mean well for the people because it will explode one day. The only way out is for justice to be done in the state and that means an Ogoni candidate should be fielded in all the political parties”.
