”President Buhari Has No Direction For Nigeria”; Asari Dokubo Rants

Published

on

                     

The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Asari Dokubo, has opened up on his assessment of President Muham­madu Buhari’s administration.In this interview with the Sun,he says the government has no direction.

On President Muhammadu Buhari ‘s has spent 100 days in office

We are all here and we have seen that the government of President Buhari has no di­rection. The government so far has achieved nothing but to make noise. All sorts of lies are being told that power is stable. I do not know where power is stable because where I am staying, there is no power. It may be stable in other places but maybe it is a punishment to us.

Continue to read more from excerpts
Perhaps, we are among the seven per cent that did not vote for him, so we are being punished. He has not built anything and there is no policy thrust. There is no economic poli­cy and there is nothing in place to show that a government is in power. Somebody is manag­ing the country as a sole administrator. This is how Hitler came. Everybody who supported him was applauding him until it was too late.On the issue of appointments,,

I am not interested in the issue of appoint­ment and I am not expecting that he should appoint me. If he does not find his followers and those who supported him among our people worthy of appointment, why should I speak for them? They betrayed us. So, if it is the reward for their treachery, so be it. I am not interested. They knew him. They knew that this is what Buhari is before they brought him and said we should vote for him and they led him to power. So, whatever they are do­ing, they knew that this is the way he would behave. Why should I bother? If he likes, he should appoint his children. I do not care. That is their business and so how does that affect meOn the future of Nigeria under President Buhari
Nigeria has no future under President Bu­hari. There is no more rule of law since this administration came on board. So, because Akwa Ibom is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) state, the State Security Service (SSS) would invade the state Government House and do whatever pleases them. That is demo­cratic sacrilege. The tribunals in Rivers State, they would just go to the tribunal and find out that the chairman has been changed and that a new chairman has been brought in place of the former one. Just all sorts of things go on and people have no respect for the rule of law. The court would give an order and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under President Buhari’s nephew, Mrs Zakari would give a different order. So, these are the issues and I think that what Pres­ident Buhari is doing has vindicated most of us who said that this man is not even qualified to be a councillor let alone being the chair­man of a local government. And we are now talking about the president of Nigeria. It is an assault, an affront on Nigeria that a man like this is made the president of the federal repub­lic of Nigeria. We are becoming a laughing stock. When people are celebrating him, we just laugh. Seriously, Nigeria is becoming a laughing stock among the comity of nations. He goes somewhere and he calls somebody a different name and he commits all sorts of blunders and then people are saying there is progress in the country since he came. How can there be progress when the economy of Nigeria has almost collapsed. I saw it on CNN that the economy of Nigeria has shrunk by 25 per cent in the last three months. So, in four years, how would the economy be under Pres­ident Buhari’s administration?
As an Ijaw man, after the presidential election, how did you feel the day the former president, Goodluck Jonathan conceded power to President Buhari?

I did not support Goodluck Jonathan and I have never been a supporter of Jonathan. I supported something greater than Goodluck Jonathan. I have said it severally that if it is Goodluck alone, I did not support him. It is what Goodluck represented that we support­ed and that we will continue to support. And everybody is seeing it now. We do not need to be told. Goodluck represents the good light to the people while President Buhari represents darkness. Goodluck represents the downtrodden and disposed people of Kaduna, Adamawa, Borno, Plateau, Benue, Rivers and Akwa Ibom. They voted for the All Progres­sives Congress (APC) but today in Plateau State, they are demonstrating that the Gam­bari people are killing them. Why? You used your hands to kill yourselves, so why are you demonstrating? What are you talking about? You deserve it? In Benue State, they are also shouting; you deserve it. It is either you vot­ed or you assisted them to rig the election. I felt bad because it has taken us backward. We are way backward. I did not support President Goodluck Jonathan. Since he lost election and left power, yesterday (September 8) during Dickson’s declaration for a second term that I saw him for the first time. I felt bad.You are saying that you did not support Jonathan when they said you got a lot of security contracts from his administration to secure the oil pipelines?

Let them go now. I think that they are freezing people’s accounts. Let them go and be looking for my own bank accounts to freeze. I must tell you that Goodluck is a good man as a person. Let me tell you; the truth is that the Ijaw people ought to be abus­ing Goodluck, the Itsekiri people ought to be abusing Goodluck, the Urhobo people ought to be abusing Goodluck and all Niger Delta people ought to be abusing Goodluck. That is the truth of the matter. On the contrary, Nige­rians ought to be praising Goodluck because he did everything for Nigeria. He did not do anything for us. We stood because he repre­sented to us something greater than himself as a person. So, if Goodluck had handed over to somebody else, we would have built on this.
I am talking about a situation where Nigerians would be equal and where Nigeri­ans would have access to power. No group of Nigerians would feel that they would lord it over other people, saying they are born to rule. That was what we fought for and which Goodluck represents and not just because we were supporting him because he is Good­luck. But not when a leader considers him­self other than the people who are backing him, Goodluck was talking about his safety, he was not talking about the safety of Mari­lyn Ogar who stood firmly but lost her job. He was not thinking about all the military men who are being retired and the policemen who are being harassed. All these people stood for him based on principle. We stood for him based on principle because we know that he represents the truth and these people represent total darkness. And then we are all seeing it. We are reasonable bystanders. When they do anything, we clap hands.

Any man who doesn’t own a house or car before marriage doesn’t have a future, says Lilian Afegbai

Published

Nigerian actress and reality star, Lilian Afegbai has said a man who does not have a house and car of his own before settling down is not serious with his life.

She stated this on Toke Moments show while talking about how she desires to be with a man who lives comfortably.

According to the Big Brother Africa alumni, she is doing well for herself and would expect that her man can also afford to buy his own house rather than pay rent.

Lilian, however, said she is not looking for a billionaire because in reality that standard may be far reaching.

She explained that buying house in Nigeria does not really require having so much money as she is already making down payments for her own house.

The screen diva further said that any man who cannot buy a house for himself can’t be with her because it means they are not mentally inclined.

TikTok bans influencer for spreading fake news about Kiki Osinbajo

Published

on

By

A Liberian TikTok content creator identified as @Realcharley22, has been banned by the social media platform for spreading fake news about a daughter of the vice president of Nigeria, Kiki Osinbajo.

The TikTok influencer had posted earlier in the week that Kiki was arrested in the United Kingdom because she was in possession of large amount of money in dollars.

Although the user, who posted photos and videos to support the claim, had since come out to refute the news after Nigerian blogger, Tunde Ednut, posted that it was untrue.

Consequently Nigerians in their numbers rushed to report the page for deceiving the public and checks on the page on Saturday revealed that the account was no longer on TikTok.

@Realcharley22 barely 24 hours after sharing the false video, shared another video apologising to Kiki and Nigerians for the post saying his source confused the lady in the video for Kiki.

He said, “I want to apologise to Kiki Osinbajo because she never got arrested. The story is not true and my source deceived me and took someone else as Kiki.

“I want to make a disclaimer on the video I posted earlier, I am so sorry, my followers and Kiki Osinbajo, she never got arrested.

“Popular Nigerian blogger, Tunde Ednut just confirmed on Instagram that it is false, Kiki never got arrested. He asked me to take down the story and it is confirmed that the story is false.”

Kiki reportedly flew into Abuja with her father on Tuesday after the VP’s trip to Lagos, where he spoke at the UN World Tourism Organisation global conference.
