2015: Jonathan WON’T win, if… —Asari-Dokubo


Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, leader of Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), is seen differently by Nigerians. For some, he is a troublemaker, while others see him as a sincere and outspoken Nigerian who would not keep quiet when things are not going the way he wants.

In a chat with newsmen, Asari-Dokubo clearly showed this stuff as he slammed President Goodluck Jonathan, who is considered as his benefactor. According to him, the President is losing focus and that may rob him of victory in 2015 if he decides to re-contest the top office.

Would you, in all honesty, say the incumbent administration is on track?

I want to start with an Ijaw proverb, which says that the eyes watched its seven children to death, instead of advising them it was just looking at them until they died while the mouth talked its only child to life and success. We have continued, as Ijaw people and the entire Niger Delta and South-South, to support the presidency of President Goodluck Jonathan, but a time has come when silence cannot be golden. We have to speak out on issues that are critical to the survival of our people, the survival of the people of the South-South and the South East, which is the political base of Goodluck Jonathan.

Jonathan is surrendered by very greedy people who are only in the presidency to enrich themselves at the expense of Goodluck himself. This brings us to another Kalabari proverb, which says: where there are elders, a goat cannot be allowed to deliver tied to a stick. If we don’t talk and we continue to brush it aside, tomorrow we will be blamed and people will say: Mujahid Asari-Dokubo was around when Goodluck Jonathan was president, and he didn’t talk; then I will be an accomplice and accessory after the fact.

I have benefited immensely from Goodluck Jonathan with my stake, but benefit alone is not enough to make me to keep quiet when the period is very challenging for our people.

What is your reaction to the face-off between the President and Obasanjo?

First, there was no need for Goodluck Jonathan whatsoever to disagree with Olusegun Obasanjo. I don’t like Obasanjo. I don’t like his face. I hate him, but he was instrumental in bringing Goodluck Jonathan to power. And the greedy people around Jonathan have not managed him enough, to the extent that the president and people around him will disagree with Obasanjo openly. And if you check, all the people who supported Goodluck Jonathan and fought to bring him to power have openly disagreed with him. What was the cause of these disagreements? This is a question for the president.

It is alarming because the South-South must have its uninterrupted eight-year tenure, which is constitutional, but with how things are going under Jonathan’s watch, we are afraid that we may not be able to have our eight-year tenure, because there will be no magic about it; if it is going to be one man one vote.

Some people say Obasanjo is manipulating Goodluck Jonathan; that is why Jonathan is disagreeing with him, and we ask: what has Goodluck Jonathan’s government achieved to show that it is a departure from other governments that have existed since 1956? For us, nothing has changed. It is still business as usual. So, what is the advice that Obasanjo gave to Jonathan that is so difficult for him to carry out, that made him decide to fall out with Obasanjo? Obasanjo manipulated the process that illegally removed Diepreye Alamieyeseigha as governor of Bayelsa State and installed Jonathan as governor, made him vice president, fought for him to become acting president and also fought for him to become president of Nigeria. Apart from Obasanjo, there are so many people who supported Goodluck Jonathan; some have been pushed out by those who were not there to give him any support, while some others are trapped and they cannot talk.

What would you identify as the main problem making the President not to perform?

The problem is that the president is surrendered by greedy people who do not want him to make any progress. I have known the president for more than 20 years, and I know he is a very simple, humane man, but he has allowed himself to be imprisoned by people around him, and this is what we are saying that this must stop.

After the election of the president, before his swearing in, I granted an interview, where I said that if Jonathan failed to perform in six months, he would lose all the goodwill, and today as we can see, the president is losing all the goodwill. The social media was one of the avenues the president used to come to power, but today, anywhere you go in the social media, he is being called all sorts of names, all sorts of derogatory names. We cannot continue to be taking punches for the president when he has refused to wear his gloves.

As at today, the president is removed from his own people; his people do not have access to him; so people like us who have access to him become target. When Joseph was sold into captivity in Egypt, from slavery to prison and from prison he became a prime minister, the first thing he did was to invite his family, from Israel to Egypt, to come and partake in his new found status. There is something wrong somewhere; the people around the president have fenced him out so that he cannot even see his direct family, and this is why I called this press conference. I have complained to Ijaw elders that I cannot keep quiet over things that I have seen, and they say I should wait. I am asking here, how long will we keep quiet? Our people now feel that we are at the riverside and yet use spittle to wash our face. That Jonathan’s last line of defence is sidelined in his government speaks volume of the presidency of Goodluck Jonathan, and our people have started to complain, and very soon the bubble will boost and the people will openly revolt. People are dying on the East-West road and Jonathan and Orubebe are doing nothing. Jonathan and Orubebe will account for the death in the East-West road.

I continue to be an advocate of eight- year presidency for the South South and eight years in the South East because the old Eastern Region is the most deprived region in this country, if you consider the number of people that have become president this country. It is not about Goodluck; it is about where we come from; my continuous support for Goodluck is because he is the standard bearer of the collective movement for change.  However, some of us are tempted to ask this question: why are all these things happening? Why has the president allowed some ministers, like Godsday Orubebe to continue in government? Every day people die on the East-West road.  If Orubebe is incompetent, he should be removed. Nobody voted for Orubebe. And why is Orubebe so important to the president that he can’t remove him?

Were you close to Orubebe before he became minister?

Orubebe was one of us. He was attending meetings with us, sleeping in the ground with us, entering night bus with us, and we nominated him to be appointed a minister; we have gone to him and complained that we didn’t like the way things were going in his ministry, and told him that if the president left in 2015 without the completion of the East-West road, we are finished. And the man keeps telling us there is no money. When Ibrahim Babangida was there, there was money. When Abacha was there, there was money. When other people were there, there was money. How come the money disappeared when Jonathan got there?

We call on the president to act. If it is spiritual, if they have bound him with spiritual chains and covered his face with spiritual blanket, we pray that the blanket be removed and the chains broken. If the East-West road is not completed, the president will find it difficult to come back.

What is your take on the proposed construction of a new banquet hall in the Villa?

Why making frivolous provision for building of a new banquet hall? How will the building of a new banquet hall affect the lives of the people outside the village? What is the necessity for a new banquet hall? This is misplaced priority, and it should be expunged from the budget.

What is your reaction to the ongoing constitutional amendment?

I believe that the National Assembly, as presently constituted, cannot amend the constitution, because the National Assembly is not standing on any moral high ground to amend the constitution. There are fundamental issues. The constitution can only originate from the people and this can only be done when a sovereign national conference is convened. Nigerian constitution is a fraud and that is why fraud cannot end in Nigeria. Even the grand-norm establishing the Nigerian state is a fraud.

The issue of onshore offshore dichotomy is still very much debated in the polity. What is your view on this matter?

The irritating call for the removal of onshore offshore dichotomy is laughable and that is why some of us don’t want to talk. Somebody from Niger Republic will come to my place in the Niger Delta and claim that they should have access to the sea at the coast. If the 1914 mistake did not take place, this wouldn’t be happening. People should stop irritating us because we are tired of being irritated.  They should not heat up the polity. And it is criminal and illegal that since 1999, when this constitution came into effect, the revenue allocation has not been reviewed, unlike before when it was being reviewed every five years. We also demand that the 13 per cent derivation should no longer go to the state governments. The money should go directly to the oil-bearing communities.

How do you think about the presidency’s reaction to the protest by Kalabari chiefs over the boundary dispute between Bayelsa and Rivers States?

On that issue, I don’t like the role played by the president. If Kalabari chiefs came to demonstrate, he shouldn’t have added salt to injury, by allowing that small boy they call Reuben Abati to refer to the action of Kalabari revered chiefs as primary school style demonstration. Will he say that about his kangaroo rulers? Why would he refer to Kalabari chiefs in that manner? Does he know the history of Kalabari people? Kalabari people have been trading with European since when his fathers were naked running after cockroaches and frogs. The president should remove this man for the insult because as a Kalabari, we don’t take such insult and we will react at the appropriate time to this insult and I know that when that happens, it will affect the president. Abati should be made to apologise to Kalabari chiefs for calling our chiefs primary school children.

    You have spoken well my brother. must times I think what is wrong with Jonathan, has he gone mad, what does he think and is he not really the worst president Nigeria ever produced. yes let’s call a spade a spade,Jonathan is really disgracing us in that Office.

    • Ashiwaju-D-Ole December 29, 2012 at 9:12 am

      Stop giving this useless murderer a space in your news paper.

      See his mouth evil bastard ASARI

      • Ejiofor777 December 29, 2012 at 11:39 am

        Boy you must be spupid to call Asari by such name ok stop it now.

    • Mayor December 29, 2012 at 11:35 am

      If Presidential election were to hold today, Mr Jonathan would not get up to 12% of votes. How can he win with spiralling unemployment, worst insecurity index since the civil war, worst corruption index since the amalgamation of north & south, loss of confidence in governance, grinding poverty & widening gap between the rich politicians & their hapless poor, perennial fuel scarcity, yearly mass failure of WAEC candidates as an index of rot in education sector. How, how can he win in a one man, one vote scenario? His approval rating has plummeted since the 2012 new year callous removal of fuel subsidy with its multiplier effects on the prices of goods & services. Nigerians are not against fuel subsidy removal if it will stop the massive corruption but it would have been better if it was done in a gradual process. The entire process smacked of sadism. His only chance is to start with massive cabinet reshuffle, immediate sack of non-performing ministers, advisers, assistants & political jobbers. He has 2013 to prove himself as he has said in many occasions.

      • Uzoh from lagos December 29, 2012 at 11:27 pm

        Mayor and Asari,Jonathan is only 1Year Six Months as President of Nigeria and still have Two and half Years to accelerate his performance in Office.He appears to be a slow starter and balancing Nigeria’s complex ethnic interests is not easy but that is not an excuse for him.
        I agree that Jonathan has not replaced very lithargic officials of his Govt like Orubebe,Dezzian,Abatti and host of others.I am surprised that Jonathan could not appoint Dora Akunyili to his Govt.I am also surprised after several Emails that Jonathan has not even visited East-West Road and issue of Second Niger Bridge appear not to be serious in his mind.Jonathan’ s Govt is not moving fast to repair the existing Refineries that are located within his Region but pays several hundreds of Billions on imported products.He is not moving fast on the Airport project in his home state,now people use Choppers to visit Bayelsa.
        My Brothers please let us exercise more patience with Jonathan but continue to worry him to deliver on his Govt promises.We must not play into the hands of those who do not want Jonathan to succeed and people who hate the Eastern Region..

  2. Wilson Godwin December 29, 2012 at 2:37 am

    As long as those greedy ministers who are not suppose to be there in the first place,are still around uncle Jona (without sounding imodest),we should not expect in change in this govt. I urged the ‘critical mass’ to stand up and challenged the situation otherwise,we will continue to lament.
    May God help Nigeria!

  3. Which Way Nigeria December 29, 2012 at 3:06 am

    Well spoken. Nigerians need action and not promises. Jonathan never act like ijaw man, he is just suffering and smiling. He has been pushed tied to the wall and he need deliverance else, south-south and south-east will suffer greatly.

  4. Julius December 29, 2012 at 3:07 am

    Johnathan will never change. I kp advocating a revolution by way of vote in 2015. Yes dis might jeopardise our complete eight year term as south-south people but we can not continue 2 sacrifice our collective destiny in d hands of a weak, non performer like Johnathan. Remember it’s not Johnathan dat will b judged directly after dis tenure but d south-south people. We can however support a competent south-south man 2 tk up d remaining 4yrs & there after our igbo brothers tk over.

  5. com. EGBE JEROME December 29, 2012 at 3:10 am

    That was a good expression of the wish of good people of NIGER-DELTA,please remind the president again about calabar-lkom road and calabar -ltu road.

  6. Osayomon December 29, 2012 at 3:19 am

    U are not serious in your talks,u are a Muslim and u are not different from the ones in the norths neither those in Pakistan or Yemen.U are boko haram In a very wrong place.U days are members,if IBB eigth yrs ,Abacha five yrs,OBJ,Goodlock Jonanthan is not different from them,I agreed with u but I disagreed with u in 2015,since all fail since independence according to u,President GEJ will complete his 8yrs and be like the rest which we nigeria managed before as a leader.For U,Asari u are only talking in favour of norths based on ur believed,but sooner or later u will join ur people in the north.

  7. Holyman-Togo. December 29, 2012 at 3:35 am

    Good talk my man,when ear refuse to hear words, when the head will be cut off the ear will be cut off along with the head,a word is enough for the wise,Jonathan is spending over N2 billion for banquet hall that does not have any possitive impact on Nigerians out side Ashi Rock(rock of liars) but everyday people are dying in South-East road.
    Jonathan is only there wearing and changing caps and hats everyday, i do not understand what is on his head that he is covering all the time.very funy and annoying sort of government.look at common China have commissioned almost 3000 miles speed train rail, but Nigeria government are not to complete second river niger bridge that is not up to 2 km for over 30 years now.he thinks that governance is all about laughing and wearing hats sorranding him self with short sighted and usless advisers and theives.greedy and selfish blood testy BHs,Jonathan you have faild is is clear to every body even a day old baby knows it, i rest my case.

  8. francis cole December 29, 2012 at 3:48 am

    Thank you very much Asari Dokubo, you have said the truth. To me I see your so call Ijaw son Presidentn Jonathan as very ungreatful idiot. When north were giving him horrors and intimidiating him after Yar dua dead, because of this, people came out enmass and voted for him. Even safe Nigeria group Bakare, Soyinka etc fought the northern cabals. But immidiately he crab the power he turn his back against every body. Before I do love him because the way northerners were treating .him that time. But, now I dont like him for penny any more. Hes a wicked man. He brought us sorrow and pains because we voted for him. He should just go by 2015. If he contest he will surely loose. Is opponet will give him super TKO. I hope the next goverment should probe him and the pdp too. He can never go free and must be probed. Let him continue to support and protect the rogues in the goverment. All of them can never go free.

  9. Toks December 29, 2012 at 5:00 am

    There is something definitely wrong with Jonathan.He doesn’t seem is like,he has been held hostage in a way by some power people/forces.Something definitely is wrong,he’s not in charge.GOD HELP NIGERIA!

  11. Chris Onyishi December 29, 2012 at 5:22 am

    Prof. David West once said that you have to be wise to understand a wise counseling. There is no gain saying that President Goodluck Jonathan is not performing because he is surrounded by greedy people.

    Is he not greedy himself? If he is chocked by greedy people and his integrity is at stake, can’t he relinquish power?

    Must he stay back and tarnish the remaining image of his, if any? He does not come off to me as a man who has good understanding of what a charismatic, charitable and proactive leadership is all about.

    It has been warbling and fumbling galore. Ad hoc kind of ruler-ship. Say one thing here do another there. He may just wake up on January 1st, 2013 to increase fuel pump price even as he has told us that “subsidy” was provisioned in the 2013 budget.

    The President cannot be trusted on anything. It is difficult for him to sack all the people who have messed up every thing since his assumption to power. The Petroleum Minister, The Finance Minister and to make matter worse, he is appointing Mr. Fix It into NPA board.

  15. Chris Adukwu December 29, 2012 at 8:50 am

    But Come oo, How come it was very few of us that knew Jonathan will lead like this? When we demonstrated (including Femi Falana, Bakare and Buhari) for him to become acting President when Yar’adua was hospitalized, not for his competence then, its just that that is what the constitution says, If all of you complaining now never knew Goodluck will lead as he is leading now, that means there are more fools in Nigeria than the thinking ones, no matter your reason for voting Jonathan then, you must be either unwise, blinded by sentiments or your are part of the problem of Nigeria! When Goodluck expressed his incompetence to former American Ambassador to Nigeria (Sanders) of which Weakileaks published you guys where blinded by sentiments to know that the man was saying the obvious, now all of you are complaining. My candid advice is instead of grumbling just think of how you are going to bear with him for 8 years, so that by 2019 maybe you will be wise to vote based on solution providing not on state of origin, religion, region, tribe or any of the dividing factors in Nigeria.

  16. tope ope December 29, 2012 at 8:55 am

    There is no iota of truth in Nigerian goverment…starting from GEJ to the bottom of all the greedy ministers, SA’s and people in his administration. He cannot manage his own team and at the end of the day, this will bite his ass. He promise heaven and earth during his campaign and what has he done since then? Zip…Who is going to save Nigeria!!!! Why can’t we try my other big brother Major General Buhari!!!..He’s gonna dive away those who stole our oil money to hell…and start eliminating those drug pushers also.

    We need a devine solution in Nigeria. may God help us.

  17. tope ope December 29, 2012 at 8:59 am

    Toks, I agree with you..he has been held hostage in a way by some power people/forces. That’s why former NSA was eliminated because he told GEJ what is going in his administration and in Nigeria.

    These power forces are in his administartion and PDP in particular.

    GEJ is a loser, we should not expect anything reasonable from him. This man has been very lucky all his life, he never achieved any reasonable thing. De only thing i can say he achieved is his PHD n who knows perhaps somebody esless did wrote de thesis for him. He has being at de head of this country govt for almost 3yrs, i mean 3yrs, can anybody honestly tell me one thing he has accomplished over de last 3yrs. U now got my point, GEJ is a time waster. There are lots of better candidate from IJAW or south south who are ten times better than this henpeck man that call himself GEJ. By de way, when he was de governor of his state, be honest what did he achieved?. GEJ four yrs will be yrs of locust in Nigeria. If south south want to complete there 8yrs term, they better look for people of substance, like “professor Tam David West”. GEJ has passed his sell by date time. Few words is enough for wise.

    It is Jonathan’s time. That is why criminals like Asari have big mouth to talk. Where was the stupid Asari when Babangida and Abacha were in power

    The advise would have been in camera, the open air address is a political campaign against SS & SE for 2015 If Godluck has failed his first 4year, where are the self made stakeholder from SS & SE? Can’t they constitute a forum and talk sense into him. Which of the past leaders have been so insulted by his people? Godluck is our son, if he fails, we have all failed wit him. Lets pray together for CHANGE. Ndeowo!

    Mallam Sari-Dokubo, Mr. President is not for Niger Delta people only. The President systematically in the name of Niger Delta militants sent all of your brothers and sisters over seas to study with Federal Government money yet you are not satisfied, what else do you want the President to do for you sir. How many Imo, Abia, osun states people are among those benefiting from the so called militants training overseas non, yet you are not happy.

  33. Simeon December 29, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    @ Anthony Etim, nice one. Dear GEJ utilise 2013. Short & long term programmes shuld b combind. Nigerians want imediate results. 2014 may b late. Gudluck.

    I quite agree with Asari. The goodwill of Mr. President has Plummeted in a negative direction since after the partial removal of the fuel subsidy and govt inability to create employment opportunity for her teeming unemployed youths. So many good people of this country advised Mr. President against the removal of the fuel subsidy but he acted following the advice of those who are anti people and he is yet to recover from the damage it has done to his goodwill. Save for NAS intervention, the minting of 5000 Naira Note and the introduction of coins would have further eroded the remaining goodwill that is left. The President must listen to his good friends who mean well for him.
    Let him remove all the non performing Ministers this year ending, he must complete the east -west road next year, the railway from Port Harcourt to Enugu to Kano must be completed and functional next year. The three refineries he promised the people of Nigeria must be completed next year, the power sector must begin to perform effectively next year, if he is able to successfully do this, then his goodwill will soar again and he can now ride smoothly through 2015 election. if Mr President wants to Win his 2015 election there must be no excuses in achieving these afore mentioned. Any hindrance and obstacles must be removed now. The President should gather his think tanks now to find solution on how to achieve this if he still believes in one man one vote. I’m still standing by you Mr President, it is not late to turn the tide in your favour but you must resolve that this is what you want to achieve, you have every thing you need to achieve it. You can achieve it, go ahead and achieve it. You have never been a failure and you can not fail at this time. See how you have broken the wings of the insurgents, You gave us the best election ever in this country. You made the trains to start operating again in some parts of the country just to mention but a few. In the issue of unemployment, you can use the agric sector and industrialisation to remove many from the unemployment market. I pray that the good Lord will send a divine helper Our beloved president. Long live the President, Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.Long live the good People of Nigeria.

    Years ago, we could not make imputs and respond to publications this fast. These online fora present a very great privilege for ordinary citizens like me to express themselves, and I cherish this very much. I look forward to a day in which a convergence of patrotic, intellectually and morally sound Nigerians, through means like this will spearhead an arm of the coming revolution. It is my considered opinion that a forum like this should be protected from people who have nothing to offer but insults. Issues raised should be tackled on their merit maturely and logically, by contributors. When we disagree , we should do so in sound arguements.. For instance , what has Asari’s religion got to do with the views he raised? What has he said to suggest that he supports the so called boko haram? Although This interview basically assessed The Jonathan administration, from the point of view of his kinsmen, the former militant equally spoke about other issues like constitution amendment, the Obj /GEJ quarrel etc. Let us agree to disagree with one another without abuses. It is time to take back our country from a ruling class which evidently has failed us. There are those in the corridors of power who mean well, and citizens jornalism could help provide the backbone they need. Others who are sleeping on duty will equally be checkmated , if they know that there is a growing power base in the people’s parliament . But when we throw tantrums like motor park touts, no one will take us serious . I appeal to the editing team of SUN online to sieve away postings which lack intellectual integrity. I am not a fan of Asari’s , but this interview surely raised salient points. I do not have to agree with everything he said.

    Please before a comment i want to give a note of warning to my fellow Nigerians, before get and understand the context of a message before you comment, Alhaji Dokubo has done alot for the south-south, but you commenting what have you. My contribution is for a job well done and am happy we still have people in Nigeria who serve our mother land not for what they get but for betterment of humanity n Glory of God. His Excellency should refer to the books and council of wisdom because 2015 will definitely turn out to be what happened in Anambra senatorial election 2012. Thnk you.

  37. Onyebuchi leo December 30, 2012 at 4:40 am

    Alhaji sari please i plead ensure that some of these comment gets to his Excellency, his first tenure is coming to an end what can we boost of at our age,all sectors of the economy keeps dwindling, not that we don’t have competent leaders but some of them needs checks and balances, political seminars should be conveyed to enlighten politicians of their responsibility bcos lots of them after eletions pop champange and lock their brains. Goodluck should be very careful bcos the mouth of the masses are wide open to swallow him and the elites wealth are sufficient to bid him farewell.

  39. Ikenna December 30, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Despite that Asari Docubo said he hated OBJ. Yet he acknowledges that he who contributed to your elevation deserves some attention, speaking without discrimination Infarct I respects his sense of reasoning, without discrimination. That is the true spirit and nature of a human right fighter; I so much thank him for speaking the truth and also recognizing his brothers the SE, my advice to the entire people of SS and the SE is that they should acknowledge the fact that they are brothers, they should forbid anything that will put asunder in between them. May God grant Asari Dokubo long life.
