The leader of the Niger Delta People’s Salvation and Volunteer Front (NDSVF), Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has said the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), President Goodluck Jonathan has already won the 2015 general elections.
Dokubo, who is the founder of King Amachree African University, Republic of Benin, said this at the burial ceremony of late Princess Preba Abigail Prince Ekineh, who happened to be his grandmother.
Vanguard reports that he expressed optimism that it is not possible for Jonathan who is also from the Niger Delta region to lose the election that returns him for the second term in office, while speaking further at the burial ceremony which was organized by the NDSVF, at Buguma in Asari Toru Local Government Area of the sate.
Asari, who insisted that Jonathan must win the presidential poll, went ahead to described the election as a walk over, adding that he does not know how it will be done but maintained that measures have been put in place for the success of president Jonathan in the election.
Asari while speaking on the happenings in Rivers State noted that there was a very high level of injustice playing out in the state’s politics, because the political power in the state is supposed to be rotating among the different ethnic nationalities that make up the state.
The freedom fighter, who stated that power should not be static on one place alone, advocated that power should be shifted to the Ogoni ethnic nationality.
“2015 Goodluck Jonathan will win, in whatever way they want him he will win. I am not afraid of anybody. My confidence is that he has already won, but in River state I don’t know because there is injustice in Rivers state. The injustice in Rivers state is that one set of People cannot rule. Rivers state is a multiethnic state and all the ethnic nationalities must have access to government. So whoever is encouraging this perfidy does not mean well for the people because it will explode one day. The only way out is for justice to be done in the state and that means an Ogoni candidate should be feed in all the political parties,” Asari said.
Meanwhile, on the contrary, the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, has revealed to Nigerians why President Jonathan-led administration should not be re-elected in 2015.
