Asari Dokubo responds to Hon. Samuel Nwanosike’s attack on him a fortnight ago. He said Samuel Nwanosike is a common criminal who has been eating the collective Commonwealth of the people.
He lacks the requisite qualifications to talk in my presence.
I dare him to an open debate even in his area of specialization, I will still defeat him. He said By law, only Ijaws, Ogonis, are Niger Deltans. Any Ikwerre, Urhobo, Bini, Ibibio or Itsekiri person claiming Niger Delta is trespassing.
Recall that on the 17th of March Samuel Nwanosike’s, in a press briefing said ”I was hearing one young man say he’s a former militant. He said his name is Asari Dokubo, a compound illiterate that don’t know where he comes from. He had the tenacity to come and say that Nyesom Wike is building ten bridges, that have no economic benefits for Rivers people, it’s only an illiterate that will talk about flyover, that it’s an economic waste. He has just fooled himself to the world, Asari Dokubo has just fooled himself.
The other day he declared customary country of the Biafra people in Nigeria. Well, we’re waiting for President Muhammadu Buhari if he will not do what he is supposed to do because enough is enough for that Asari Dokubo.
We are all Rivers people, nobody is more Rivers than any other person. Asari Dokubo, he say he’s a militant, he kills people, he do this and that. 419, he’s a complete 419, are you hearing me? He has misled a lot of youths for his own personal gain. Rivers people are wiser now.
He’s making noise that 2023 he’ll cease power by force. In Ikwere Local government here we are unmovable. Are we movable? We’re unshakable. We have lions and tigers in Ikwere local government. We don’t need to talk, when the time come for election, let Asari leave Asari Toru local government and come to Ikwere and face us so that he’ll know the kind of people he’s meeting with. Nyesom Wike no dey in level. Asari na toy to Nyesom Wike, Asari na Cockroach to Nyesom Wike. Asari dey learn work. If he wan see, make him learn work, Ikwere people, dem go teach am work. Nobody can intimidate Rivers people, nobody can intimidate Ikwere people.
Today in this Rivers state, the four Ikwere local government, the 16 Ikwere speaking communities are loyal to Nyesom Wike and we are ready to follow him anywhere he goes to. Whichsoever direction Nyesom Wike face we’ll follow him. Asari, listen and listen to me, my name is Nwanosike Samuel, we’re not afraid of you.
~ Samuel Nwanosike, Chairman Ikwerre Local Government Area daring Alhaji Asari Dokubo
Governor Nyesom Wike in his response said Asari Dokubo is only using Biafra to gain publicity, he is not Igbo
However IPOB backs Asari Dokubo’s Biafra Customary Government.
The IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, said the leadership of IPOB has no interest whether Asari Dokubo or any other agitating group forms Biafra government or not.
Rather, he said the formation of many pro-Biafra groups would make the work of IPOB easier, adding that IPOB would support any group that fights for Biafra freedom.
Full script, of Asari Dokubo That is causing uproar,
A former Niger Delta agitator and now a Frontline for the creation of Biafra, Asari Dokubo, ahead of the 2023 general election has warned that the Kalabaris will not beg to be handed power after Governor Nyesom Wike.
Asari said his people are poised to take power by force even as he described Wike as a “nobody”, saying that if the Kalabaris stand up, “the governor will run.”
Speaking at a meeting with Ogoni Liberation Initiative and Kalabari Unity Forum, Dokubo said the governor has insulted everything they held dear.
Standard Observers reports that others who attended the meeting include another ex-agitator and a critic of governor Wike, Sobomabo Jackrich.
The meeting, according to sources was centered around how the riverine areas would produce a governor of the state come 2023.
He said: “You don’t go and beg. Wike is nobody. If we’re ready to stand up, he will run. I have no preferred candidate.
“2023, this power, we will take it by the grace of God. Everybody should be prepared, whether federal might, state might, local government might. When the time comes, the happen will surely happen.
“Wike told us ntoorr and I decided to sell everything I have in Port Harcourt. I parked out of Port Harcourt. I said I will not live and sleep in Port Harcourt again. I came back to my home, made my small place comfortable so I can sleep in.
“The ntoorr Wike told us, we will give it to him. Wike has insulted everything sacred to us as Kalabari people. Kalabari people were sitting down and Wike insulted our father, he insulted the Amakrees and I told him, that is the line you will cross.
“From that day, the kingdom was taken from him. When I am going to war, I pre-inform the enemy of my coming. We know that Wike has all the money of Rivers State, he does whatever he wants with it. I’m not fighting Wike because he is an Ikwerre man. I’m an Elibrada man. I won’t deny that I’m Ikwerre simply because Wike is mad. Because even in Kalabari, we have mad people.
“Any Ikwere man who sees the madness of Wike and supports him, he will be blamed when Wike stones people and the people are retaliating and the stone goes and hit them. If Wike is not mad, how can he be building eight flyovers on one road? No economic value. How many of us can buy a car now?
“Julius Berger from Germany will collect our money and repatriate it back to their country. This is neocolonialism. People do not know the implications of the wickedness of Wike.
“We’re matching on this battle. Nobody in Ikwerre that is not eating Wike’s money is living as comfortable as I am living. Outside, Obio/Akpor, no other place is developed in Ikwerre land. This sick man is deceiving people.
“People are begging that Wike should give us governorship. Even if he gives us governorship, we will not accept it. We will take it from him by force. We will meet him man to man when the day comes. I will be alive to see the fall of Nebuchadnezzar”.
