Running for 2023 presidency will end in disgrace – Asari Dokubo warns Jonathan
Former Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari Dokubo says former President Goodluck Jonathan will be disgraced if he allows himself to be fooled into running for the 2023 presidency.
Dokubo, who is a staunch Jonathan supporter, stated this in a video he shared on his Facebook page on Sunday.
He said those calling on Jonathan to contest the election were out to disgrace him.
The ex-militant leader also flayed the ex-president over his frequent visits to the Aso Rock Villa to see President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Goodluck Jonathan is now fooling himself running around to Aso Rock thinking that they are going to give him the presidency come 2023.
“They are not going to give you (Jonathan) anything. They will disgrace you and take away that small respect that you have and throw you in the trash can. But we are watching, let them prove us wrong and let us see,” Dokubo said.
Also speaking on the ongoing EndSARS protests, the ex-militant described it as a waste of time.
“There is nothing to restructure or remodel about Nigeria. Instead of wasting our (Niger Deltans) time in cooporating with the Yorubas and Ibos in EndSARS or restructuring protests, the only solution as Niger Delta people is to team together with the Ogonis and the Ibos and Efiks and reinvent Biafra because nobody can oppress the Ijaw man in Biafra.
“What we need to do is to seek ye first the political kingdom and every other thing will be added to you because you will control and hold your oil.
“Anything else is not going to work unless we stand up and fight for Biafra.
“Anybody talking about restructuring, Niger Delta republic or an Ibo Biafra is an enemy of our people because biafra most surely come whether you like it or not,” Dokubo noted.
