Asari Dokubo slams Jonathan, accuses him of losing focus

From IHEANACHO NWOSU, Abuja

Leader of Niger Delta Volunteer Force (NDVF), Alhaji Mojadeed Asari Dokubo, yesterday slammed President Goodluck Jonathan, accusing him of derailing from the objective Nigerians voted him for. He said some greedy people who are both corrupt and ruthless cage Jonathan.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, Dokubo claimed that politicians, who have hijacked President Jonathan were responsible for his quarrel with people and regions that brought him to power. He picked out the president’s rift with his predecessor, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, as an example. According to him, it was wrong for Jonathan to quarrel with Obasanjo whom he said was his political benefactor.

He said: “President Goodluck Jonathan is surrounded by greedy people.” Dokubo explained that his reason for speaking out was because  “it will be unfair to keep quite in the face of impunity.” Insisting that it was a mark of ingratitude for Jonathan to strain his relationship with Obasanjo, he recalled that the former president helped Jonathan to rise from the position of a deputy governor to the Presidency. Dokubo accused him of not doing much to show that he is different from his predecessors.

He claimed that the president is sending a wrong signal about his person by allowing people of questionable characters to surround his government. He insisted that President Jonathan, by some of his policies and decisions, was far away from the people, adding that even Jonathan’s kinsmen have no access to him. He warned that people may be forced to revolt if the situation continues.

He said the implication of the continued poor performance of the government might be losing his second term bid, a development he said would be accepted by the South South. “The President has allowed himself to be imprisoned by some greedy individuals. His goodwill will soon go and that will affect his second term chances,” he said.

  1. dokibo tell him let him know is a foolish man to allow the ex-conflict to decide to him, now asking if the man is nt jail can he become govenor talkless of vice to president or did he blv aleymasia can make him gov even he was nt jail let him ask how many nigerian ex-govenor chose there deputy as a preccessor i pity you gej you are on greatful to those who put u thr and to nigerians that voted u in pack ur load 2015 ok

    • it baffles me the kind of media we have in nigeria the media will abdicate their duty in reporting very pressing issues and out laziness be focusing on mundane issues there by misdirecting the attention of nigerians from very pressing national issues to frivolities .i will be glad if the media focuses more on investigative reporting of our govts and there responsibilities e.g projects for which appropriation has been made and work is not been done ,contracts awarded for such and such and the progress of work is such and such,this corruption matter is in court for so so years and this is the progress made ,this road project has been awarded for so so years and the contract duration is so so years and this is how far the project has gone ,this gov or president this is what yu promised to do but so so yrs after this is what yu have done.if our media will start behaving in this form,they will put our leaders on the spot and things will start changing for good in this nation .for assari and his co travellers ,i am not suprised this man has started thinking of how to survive after jonathan since he is not so sure that jona will present himself for 2015 and for assari to survive on oil theft and arms merchant ,he must put his legs on the two sides of the divide in case of incasity bcs guy man must survive.assari na real guy man and trust this mba mmiri people they are like the yorubas when it comes to betrayal assari can even betray jona so that his illicit bizz can continue otherwise how can he maintain his numerous wives and concubines abi yu no know say assari na ijaw almajeri.

    • if not for the kind of legacy of fraud ,corruption and impunity bequeathed to nigeria by the likes of obj who misruled nigeria ,public felons like assari dokubo who has stolen our common resources ,who started this kidnapping for ransom and levied criminal war against nigeria and helped in no small way to put illicit weapons in the hand of criminal elements who are killing and maiming nigerians today,this very assari must be serving a deserved life sentence today,but instead what do we have ,the same character intimidating the govt and people of nigeria .well i am sorry for this nation ,a country led by fools and charlatans will have a very long way to go .may God save nigeria.

  3. Who knows what Dukobo wanted this time. He shld tell nigerians how much he has been collecting from GEJ and his gorvnmt in pretence that he and other millitants (who also collects large sum as much as some states budgets) guides our pipeline. Somebody shld pls ask GEJ what his army, navy, air force, sss, police are doing. Why must he waste tax payers money on millitants in the name of protecting pipeline. I refuse 2 concore 2 this idea. A millitant remains a millitant if you like give him the whole Nigeria he is what he is. Mr. President pls channel those resources you are wasting on this ppl 2 Niger Deltan states, use direct labour from FG 2 this states just as in ABJ you will see that your pipelines (our pipelines) will be better protected.

    • on a more serious note what does assari mean ,does assari mean that jonathan for fear of having misunderstanding with obj will continue to ignore to nigerias peril the budding house of fraud erected by obj in every facet of nigerias economy .look at objs privatization for instance ,are we saying we should allow objs partitioning of nigerians choice assets to himself ,cronies and concubines,look at the fraud obj did in power sector,look at this bi cortney saga ,look at objs fraud in road construction,niger bridge construction was flagged off by obj and his son in corruption andy uba without any design or any contract award.power stations were commissioned by obj with generator light, in fact for want of space to talk about objs castle of corruption i will just pray that God will not allow any govt in nigeria to be in good terms with that yoruba demon, for he is the real problem of nigeria and any time obj comes close to any one in power ,the evil following obj will captivate such a one and he will loose focus.obj is d cause of this hatred today bw the north and south south he perverted the smooth sail of power rotation bcs of his hatred of atiku his hard working deputy bcs obj reasoned that atiku will be a better president and in objs anger after nigerians has frustrated his 3rd term agenda ,he angrily sowed this seed of discord and left nigeria bleeding on all sides .assari is a big disgrace to his family and ijaw nation for foolishly preaching this kind of evil sermon to nigerians at this material time .shame to this foolish almajeri militant .

  4. Asari or whatever u call ur self…pls shut ur trap…..we didn’t ask for ur sermon. Ur talk no hold water…..hungry and greedy fool…wey dey call others greedy. God punish all these criminals looting the poor…both those wey dey accuse in pretence and those wey dem they accuse……NONSENSE!!!!!

  5. Asari Dokubo is simply angry because his kalabari community lost some oil wells to Jonathan Bayelsa state and therefore Jonathan must be pulled down. But Asari is throwing the wrong punches, Jonathan is as good as elected come 2015, we in the south-south and south-east does not need sermons from the like of Asari and OBJ to decide. It may not be Uhuru but we are better off under Jonathan than under Obasanjo

  6. @ easy you forget so soon that ibb free obj from jail and put him in power and what happend later ?stupid man like you. if you are even really a man to say, if obj is your god, he is not for me and my biafra ok

    • IBB did not have any other choice other than to accede to the Yorubas demand because of Abiola’s death. As for GEJ ascending the throne through OBJ, the latter had a choice. He didn’t have to do that. As for IBB and the rest of Nigeria, there is no other choice other than to ensure that a Yoruba man becomes the president. How can you quickly forget that, the two presidential candidates at the time were Yorubas. What other choice did Nigeria have at the time? None. IBB assisted OBJ because he thought the latter would be helpful to the North, rather than Falae. Wrong move. OBJ dealt with them.

      What Jonathan is doing now is part of OBJ script. To let others feel like he is against OBJ. This way, the north would trust him and to ensure that he wins the second time. You are not sophisticated enough to understand the politics of the Yorubas. We think like American politicians. It is a set up to deceive the north!

      • Anthony I Efobi on

        Ok, Akin Wale. But stop worrying urself about Biafra and do ur Yoruba thing. We believe in ourselves and people created srong by God.

  7. This man Asari is speaking from both sides of his mouth, last time he threatened he would go to war if Jonathan was not returned in 2015. He might decide to go to war again, for Jonathan, if the settlement is right. Bunch of rogues!

  8. Asari again? This man simply has lost it. He doesnt seem to understand that no one takes him serious anymore. Gone were the days when he[Asari ] speaks and his so called volunteer force shiver. In the first instance, the much touted stand-off between the Obasanjo and Jonathan is only in the media. Am yet to come across any response from the presidents camp to suggest a querrel is on. If Asari has come across any, pls make reference to it instead of making sweeping statements to further blur the minds of undescerning Nigerians. By the way, who made him a mouth piece for the south-south? Abeg make we hear worth. Its unthinkable that someone like him is walking free and even making press statements at the drop of a hat, after all the self confessed killings and illegal arms deal across the globe. I weep for our country.

    • May God bless you JERRY THOMAS for speaking the truth. My community alone is yet to recover from the sorrow this fool who called himself Asari left us. May he rest in peace Boon

  9. @Asiri Dokubo , you are a real confusion . Not even one articulated statement to your brother GEJ as an advise on how to handle this problem called Nigeria..You just made utterances of a fool, full of unprovoked anger and furry and yet signifying nothing.

  10. @Alex is only ure hopeless family will still vote for GEJ @Elijah since u dnt read any meaning in what assari said dat means u eat through ure nose and dat is abnormal,when are we going to cee dat dis GEJ is incompetent he has not done anything for south south people and south east dat voted for him massively, he should 4get our vote cme 2015 our region is far better of in hands of yar r’ adua dan dis man

  16. It’s sad that somebody in the caliber of Alhaji Asari Dokubo, one whom so many thought was fighting for an area, which produces over 60% of the survival of Nigeria, but lives in an unpredicatble poverty, is only interested on the differences between two very respected politicians, whom the Nigerian Populace are lamenting of their over-sights in office and while in office. The lost of focus of president Jonathan is it on not fulfilling the mandate Nigerians gave him or to follow the instructions of the very few, like former president Obasanjo mentioned by him?

  17. Asari the alhaji needs to keep quiet…! Hes lost his relevance and nusiance value of terrorising his own people with greedy passion. A man reaps what he sows…so noone should defend OBJ

  18. A thief is a thief, Likewise a terrorist no matter what is done to Rebrand such a fellow. Who gives Asari Dokubo the impetus to open his dirty mouth to talk to GEJ. is it because we nigerian are not like the Arabs? or the Amnesty that set him free after Robbing, kidnapping, and killing of those innocent people including children in their various attack. Asari is now rubbing his shoulder with the President. WE should not forget that making a slave a king does not make that slave the King. Asari is a terrorist no more no less.

  19. omotayo oyeyipo on

    What actually is Dokubo up to? There is no reason to accuse GEJ of derailing from the objectives Nigerians voted him for because there was never any objective in the first place, so he never had any focus from which he can derail. Did Nigerians consider any manifesto in voting for him? What sense is in saying that a king should not disagree with a kingmaker when the kingmaker becomes too greedy for power, especially a kingmaker who when he was the king never respected his own kingmaker(s). Dokubo is talking rubbish, he has his own agenda. Dokubo himself, like most Nigerians, know that Babangida was Obasanjo’s political benefactor. The rest is history.

  20. Dokubo asks Jonathan to stop fighting Obasanjo

    Why? because , there is “no need for Jonathan to disagree with Obasanjo simply because he (Obasanjo) is instrumental to Jonathan becoming the President”.

    This is how people reason when they have very little education and have too much money. That OBJ was instrumental to Jonathan becoming president should not mean that he should be in his pocket. OBJ as a former president has apple access to the president. If he has any suggestion over anything, he could simply pick up his phone and make a call to the president but what did he choose to do? Went to Warri and started calling the president all sort of names. Even though I have always found the man to be crude, I couldn’t believe he could go that extent simply because he has lined up Lamido to be president in 2015, the same Lamido whose son was arrested recently for money laundering. I dey laugh o.

    Therefore for Dokubo to come up with that theory means that apart from lack of proper education, the money he came by through militancy has completely taken over his common sense because one can be wise even without formal education.

    This reminds me the very crude ways of many Nigeria politicians. Remember Dr. Ngigie? That was how those who sponsored him wanted him to hand them the finance of Anambra State and when he refused, he was kidnapped. The same happened to Ladoja of Oyo State. When he refused to obey them, he was impeached by the Ibadan garrison amala politician Adedibu.

    For whatever any one has to say, there is something to admire in IBB. You can hardly hear that man running his mouth reckless like OBJ does and enjoys and this is simply because he sees himself as the Nigeria’s messiah. For him MKO was not the messiah. Jonathan is not the messiah. He is the only messiah around and yet his daughter could not win to go back to the national assembly. It was due to the crisis he generated for wanting Olurin to be governor of Ogun State that made Tunibu to take over that state. The earlier people realize that OBJ has no electoral value the better.

    You only have to go back and read his book, My Command and you will know the man is full of himself. In that book he arrogated the winning of the Biafra war to himself relegating and totally did away with the efforts of those who were in the war front before him, people like the Black Scorpion, Benjamin Adekunle, Shuwa who was recently murdered by Boko Haram and many others.

    Unfortunately however, there are many on this pages who appear as daft as Dokubo who want the president to fly to Ota Farm every morning to take orders from OBJ because he made him president. That we still have people reasoning this way, no wonder Nigeria is hardly making any progress.

  21. ONCE A MACHINERY, ALWAYS A MACHINERY.

    AMAECHI IS BEING APPROACHED TO BRING OUT ANOTHER N15 BILLION NAIRA FROM THE NIGER DELTA TO FUND 2015 CAMPAIGN WITH A REWARD OF BEING MADE THE V.P. AMAECHI CANNOT WAIT FOR THE ASKING TO MADE, HE IS TOO EAGER. NO LESSON LEARNT, NO HISTORY RECALLED. FACTUALLY HOWEVER, DESPITE THE N15 BILLION HE DOLED OUT FOR YAR’ADUA CAMPAIGN, POSTERITY HAS REFUSED TO SET IBORI FREE. HE IS COOLING OFF IN BRITISH PRISON.

    NOW, DOKUBO HAS HIS POCKET FULL WITH SOME OTHER PROMISES IN THE KITTY. LEOPARD CAN NEVER CHANGE ITS SPOTS. ONCE A MACHINERY, ALWAYS A MACHINERY.

  22. Dokubo what good hv u seen in OBJ nd wht relationship do u want GEJ 2 hv wt him??? The man(OBJ) dat turned Nija upside down… Ghana pple cries now bcus OBJ went there nd help d incumbent president Mr Mahama 2 ring their just concluded general election… Dokubo so u hv join them…? Now i knw…

  23. The floods of comment here did not reflect d true interpretation of d message Asari is trying to convayed or passed to Nigerians voters. He is just a forrunner to GEJ’s 2015 election. According to Asari,he said, “the president has allowed himself to be imprisoned by some greedy individuals. His goodwill will soon go and that will affect his second term chances”. What he is saying in essence is that, Jonathan should improve his performance and stop making unnecessary enemies in order to enhance his chance 4 2015 election. As usual,this is purely d work of foot-soldiers,by d away,he made statement in Abuja where GEJ resides.

  24. I HOPE GEJ IS READING THIS,WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT,OBASANJO IS STILL THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO NIGERIA.MOST OF THIS DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESSES WE ARE IN NOW,WAS KEPT BY OBASANJO’S REGIME. I WISH WE HAVE SOMEBODY LIKE HIM AS PRESIDENT OF THIS NATION AGAIN.WE ARE ALL WATCHING GEJ,I CANT SAY POOR NOW,BUT WITHIN SHORT PERIOD,I WILL ANALYSE HIS REGIME.

  25. The truth hurts, GEJ has failed everyone that cast his or vote for him. He now forms cabal that control the lives of all of us. Asari simply told him the truth if he like let him take it or leave it. Power dey sweet we know but it can also kill.
    As for my south easterner , our problem is that we forgive and forget easily, from every indication and the body language coming from Aso rock, second Niger bridge has been set aside for 2015 campaign and for sure we will fail to this trick with the help of some saboteurs among us .
    Some lives will be lost in the process because that bridge will not stand the next 5 years. Time has come when we should let the best rule even if he comes from Benin Republic. All we need is good life with good roads , good water, electricity, security. We can feed ourselves , I belive no government will ever feed us. Thats the work of the most high no human. .
    GEJ do not know anything about governance and if we fail to this tribal sentiment by 2015, for sure it will be another four years in prison with hard labour.

  26. unjoerated onwukeme on

    May God bless you for coming and speaking
    The truth, president Jonathan has been blind folded
    And if he’s not careful it may consume him!
    Beware GEJ!
    Nigerians re now wise! It won’t be business as usual!

  27. Which Way Nigeria on

    For me, I don’t see anything wrong in Asari’s comment. One of the problems in Nigeria today is people you want to rescue rather turns against you. Let keep dying in silence. Asari is in position to help solve some common problems. I personally love his comment. People should read articles post on site very well before making comment, don’t just join others and make unreasonable and nasty comment.

  28. I wonder the criterion on which people are defending GEJ. Has Nigerians had it so bad since 1960? The living standard of average Nigerians has deteriorated since the past two years of GEJ’s administration. Never have we had such a visionless administration that exhibits stack ignorance of the act of governance. Dokubo’s assessment of GEJ is correct whether or not he is a terrorist. Truth remains truth no matter who tells it.

  29. I have said it before and I will continue to say it. GEJ messed up. I voted for him during the last election but till this moment i still regret casting my vote for Jonathan.
    If we can tell ourselves the truth. GEJ cannot win councilor ship election in Utueke during his tenor as deputy governor in Bayelsa.
    OBJ did the unthinkable so should be grateful to him forever. Not only making an Ijaw man the president but the first man from the SS / SE to achieve such feat.
    Anyone who said it is easy should ask the Igbos who has been struggling to be at the position since the creation of this country Nigeria.
    Now he has seen himself we he never dream in this world, now he is ranking himself with OBJ.
    Well Nigerians knows better but the fact remain that, HE WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHERE THE RAIN STARTED BEATING HIM, WILL DEFINITELY NOT KNOW WHERE IS STOP BEATING HIM. Jonna there is still time for you to change and kick out people like Doyin Okupe, Dezieni Allison Maduke, Sanusi, AGF Adoki, and so many incompetent minister who is busy loading money as if money will soon finish out of your government you will live to regret it and least I forget. Do not try that you second term agenda because you cannot survive it, then all the money you park will be a waste.
    Be wise hand over to an Igbo man so that leadership will go round,

  30. Hey, what sort of comments are you wasting your time on this man. In his militancy activities, how many people lost their lives? If any life was lost, he is a murderer and must be ready to pay with his blood one day. I am surprised that people of this kind feels proud to talk in this country. Well shame to the government!

  31. Akin Wale you be Amebo,wetin concerned you with the Biafra issue now?.A typical Yoruba man busy body and pokenosing thats who you are Akin Wale,better follow the issue on ground and leave the Igbos and their Biafra Akin Wale.Nawaaa
