After several weeks of opposing the new government, the reality of Muhammadu Buhari as president might just have dawned on Ex- Niger Delta militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo.
Speaking during a chat with newsmen in Owerri today, May 31, Asari Dokubo slammed Ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan for ignoring his advice and relinquishing his duties as president to Buhari.
According to him, the recent 2015 general elections is “the most rigged election Nigeria has ever experienced, as it was not free and fair”, Vanguard reports.
Alhaji Dokubo who was in Imo to be part of the Biafra Day celebration with his Biafran brothers and sisters, said the results of the 2015 general elections were manipulated.
“The figures were self-evident. The figures clearly showed the manipulations. The elections were not free and fair. Also, the stage was set to manipulate the elections.”
He also noted that Boko Haram came into being after the leaders from the Northern section of the country (mostly the Northern Muslims), made the statement that they would make the society ungovernable and crisis laden for Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
The ex-Niger Delta militant also said the National Assembly rejected e-voting and but accepted the card reader idea when it came up.
“Our brother Goodluck Jonathan refused to listen to us. To him, the life of any Nigerian was not worth his election or ambition. For us, that was an abdication of his duties as President because we were also involved in the elections and we wanted a free and fair elections”, Dokubo said.
Dokubo recalled that Jonathan was roundly humiliated on the day of the election, stressing that four card readers were brought as he stood waiting and all of them rejected him.
“That was the time Dr. Jonathan ought to have taken action and stopped the fraud that INEC called an election. He did not do it. It was in the middle of a crucial match that the referee, Professor Attahiru Jega , who is from the same place with Muhammadu Buhari, issued a statement that if card readers cannot confirm your finger prints, then you can go on and vote”, Dokubo fumed.
This attack on Jonathan, comes after the ex-militant leader earlier warned President Buhari against undermining the interest of the Niger Delta.
