Election

Asari Dokubo confident of Jonathan's victory


The leader of Niger Delta People's Salvation Front (NDPSF), Alhaji Mujahbi Asari Dokubo, has declared President Goodluck Jonathan the winner even when the election is yet to take place.

Speaking at the weekend during the burial ceremony of his grandmother, Princes Preba Ekineh at Buguma in Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers state.

He said that it was not possible for the incumbent president who is also a Niger Delta indigene to lose the election irrespective of who his contender is. Asari Dokubo boasted that president Jonathan must win the election, even though he did not know how it would be done, he has simply given his own result ahead of the INEC's on the February 14 polls.

"In 2015 general election, Goodluck Jonathan will win, in whatever way they want him, he will win. I am not apologising to anyone. I am not afraid of anybody. He has already won. My confidence is that he has already won."

Speaking on the governorship race in the state, the Niger Delta warlord said a high level of injustice was played out in the Rivers polity, insisting there should be power rotation.

Dokubo emphasised that the state was made up of many ethnic groups and there should be equity and justice.

He warned that the consequences of the political injustice in the state, especially meted out on the Ogoni ethnic nationality.

"But, for River State, I do not know because there is injustice in Rivers State. Why I said that there is injustice in Rivers State is that, one set of people cannot continue to rule.

"Rivers State is a multi-ethnic state and all the ethnic nationalities must have access to government. So, whoever that is encouraging this perfidy, does so at his own peril because it will boomerang", he warned.

According to him: "The way out of this danger is to do the right thing. The right thing is to make an Ogoni the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and an Ogoni man, the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC). It must be an Ogoni man for all the political parties", he insisted
