We Are Holding Nigerians As Our Slaves, Asari Dokubo Says

In the heated conversation that lasted over 20 minutes, the pro-Jonathan militant was non repentant and aggressively supported his campaign for the continued reign of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

Asari DokuboI told him that at a time I had respected him (Dokubo) but now he has lost all my respect; asking how much money would make him support a killer leadership. I asked how insensitive he was witnessing how Jonathan’s corruption had undermined the army and how the president’s failures (not complying with the Paris summit agreement to station 700 troops to defend the border) directly led for instance to the death of over 2500 defenseless Nigerians at Baga.

He mentioned Fulani.

I asked what the poor Kanuri fishermen and farmers of Baga had to do with a so-called Fulani thing.

He responded that the killings were in the north and he had no business or care about that. He further cited wars in other places and the example of Libya and the sack of Moammar Gaddafi.

I told him that in those cases there was not an inebriated and cluelessly corrupt government that caused the preventable wars and asked him why then does he support Jonathan who disgraced Africa being the first African leader to support the NATO destruction of Gaddafi and Libya in effect, while great leaders like Jacob Zuma stood behind Libya.

He said something about having trained in Libya and accused General Buhari, chief opposition candidate of receiving funds for his presidential campaign in 2011 from Gaddafi.

I did not understand his point, because I supported Gaddafi and Libya against the colonialist sponsored invasion and have no grouse with Gaddafi.

I insisted; that why will he support a Jonathan who aided the hegemonists destroy North Africa by sacking Gaddafi, now leading to the proliferation of arms and instability in the entire region.

I went on to ask him how much he had been paid and what this money was worth, that it made him sell his soul for a hopeless candidate.

He continued a tirade against the North, the “Gambari’s” and the Yorubas, saying all were traitors and that why am I interested in the Fulani ruling me.

I told him that this conversation had nothing to do with Buhari; that if he wanted he should not support anyone, or should have brought out a responsible candidate from his family, but how does his conscience feel supporting someone who was killing innocent people across the country.

He responded again accusing Yorubas, the group to which I belong, of being traitors and bragging of all the bombs his terror group had detonated across Yoruba land.

I told him that his desperation for a penny had made him betray the true struggle of the Ijaw people; I pointed out that Bayelsa was the most polluted piece of land on the planet with terrible suffering.

He challenged my stats and asked me what I knew about Bayelsa.

I responded that I lived there for a year and that the sky there is still red with burning of natural gas. I told him how oil spillage has destroyed their ecosystem under Jonathan.

He asked how long Jonathan had been there.

I retorted that 6 years was long enough to effect transformation.

He said I lied and that I had never lived in Bayelsa.

I went ahead to describe Bayelsa to him.

He was very angry and continued to curse Yoruba people as traitors who betrayed in the past and threatened that the Yorubas will feel the wrath of the Ijaw.

I told him he was a coward, that if he was not he would have liberated his father’s house and kept the oil under its soil for himself.

He laughed and responded that we (Nigerians) are their slave; that they will support Jonathan to rule till 2019 after which they will then take “their” oil and go.

He said they were just punishing us for now.

I asked him if Jonathan was supervising the Boko Haram pogrom of the north as some sort of “revenge” for Nigeria’s past errors.

I asked him why Goodluck Jonathan had not restructured the country so he can preside over Otueke and leave other people alone and not continue to finance and supervise our suffering and deaths. Telling him about the failure of the national conference when only the Yorubas in attendance and Northerners like the Lamido of Adamawa had asked for their own sovereignty, but his people had failed to make such push and Jonathan had failed to use the avenue of the conference to bring about change.

He asked me why I was not invited to attend it.

I asked where his conscience was and how he felt about the deaths of thousands of innocent people because of the little change he got from the corrupt Jonathan government.

I told him that the money does not pass the fourth generation and that the little money he gets that has made him betray the Kalabari kingdom and great King Amachree and the people of Ijaw land will be finished before he knows it and shame will remain to his name.

He went on a tirade about some stuff I could not really understand. It had to do with killing and bombings and stuff.

I told him he was a coward.

He was very upset throughout the interview. I really wish he pays attention to his blood pressure.

Interestingly, he has a Chief Security Officer, CSO; his CSO named Commander George believes in Nigeria.

The Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi on Wednesday jokingly thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for not converting him to Islam, saying he was misunderstood and criticised for associating with the president. He spoke when members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday expressed appreciation to the President for the opportunity he gave them to serve in his cabinet. At the valedictory session of the council, ministers in the cabinet took turns to narrate the lessons they learnt from the president as members of his cabinet. Amaechi narrated how he was almost chased out of Christ the King Catholic Church in 2014 for supporting the president, whom they alleged was trying to Islamise the country. “Mr President, let me thank you for not converting me to Islam. I say that specifically because in 2014 when I walked into Christ the King Catholic Church, I was literally chased out of the church as a governor because I was accused of supporting a man whose agenda was to Islamise Nigeria. “And in Rivers state they began to call me `Alhaji Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi’. I thank you because they have dropped the `Alhaji’ and back to Mr Chibuike Amaechi,’’ he said. Amaechi said some persons initially thought that the president would be an autocratic leader only for him to turn out to be an “extreme democrat’’. “I was told in the course of the campaign that you were autocratic and therefore you would not be democratic. “Most of us are not happy that you have moved from your autocratic nature to an extreme democrat that everything puts to test of the people, to the extent that the people now feel that the only way things can go on in this country is by the rule of law. “We all know that the rule of law is the beginning and the end of this government. Talking about the financial impunity that we saw before, people were making money without having any productive capacity for that,’’ he said.
