Leader of Niger-Delta Peoples Volunteers Force
(NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has
lambasted President Goodluck Jonathan for
allegedly placing more value on the life of former
Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd)
than other Nigerians.
Dokunbo-Asari was reacting to President
Jonathan�s statement in which he said Nigeria
would have boiled had Gen. Buhari died in a
recent bomb attack in Kaduna.
Saying that such comment was uncalled for, the
ex-militant leader also rejected insinuations that
he paid the mastermind of the blast N5m.
According to reports from Nation, the ex-militant
also denied working for President Jonathan.
Dokunbo-Asari said that the insinuation was
meant to tarnish his image as a way of shutting
him out of 2015 electioneering process. Speaking
in Abuja on Tuesday, he insisted his stance that
General Buhari has no good intentions for Nigeria
as a result of the support he (Buhari) gets from
foreign leaders and organizations aiming to
destabilize the country.
�I do not work for Jonathan. What the President
said was wrong. The life of Buhari is not more
important than 87 people that died in that blast.
It is unfortunate that the president made such a
statement. I wonder why the President will be
promoting one person above that of other
Nigerians. �That statement from the President
was very unfortunate. I do have the capacity to
tell the President to apologize, but I still insist
that he should not have made such a statement.
�Soon after the blast, a cross-gender person
came out and was arrested. Even the mother of
the person arrested said he was insane�.
On working for President Jonathan, Dokubo said,
�Social media reports said I gave them N5
million to carry out the attack. These things are
masterminded. The first one is against President
Jonathan and the other is against me. �I did not
pay anybody to carry out any assassination
attempt on Buhari. I do not have anything against
him. He is not a threat. He will fail in 2015.
For the records, I do not operate a
Twitter account and anyone saying I tweeted that
there will be more attacks is only using my
name.� �They want to silence me because they
know the role I will play in 2015. They have also
sponsored reports in Benin Republic that I am the
person financing Boko Haram. �Another islamic
scholar also said I am the one sponsoring Boko
Haram to destroy the north on behalf of President
Jonathan. �The Deputy Minority Leader in the
House of Representatives said I spoke on behalf
of President Jonathan. That means Buhari is the
commander-in-chief of Boko Haram in the north.
His allies came out and made inflammatory
statements during the 2011 elections.�
Dokubo said he can prove how Gen Buhari was
being funded by the late Leader of Libya, Col.
Muammar Gaddafi.
