Mujahid Asari Dokubo, an ex-militant who threatened to unleash violence on the country if President Goodluck Jonathan lost his re-election bid, has threatened a return “to the creeks” and accused the Yoruba and Hausa of working against Igbo and Niger Deltans.
He denied saying he was in support of any government in power, despite a tweet on his handle, @asaridokubo, on Tuesday.
He did not disown the handle but said he was yet to congratulate any winner of the presidential and parliamentary elections.
He said the election of Muhammadu Buhari as president “is a clear indication that the country is not united” and accused the Yoruba and Hausa of collaborating to frustrate Jonathan, who hails from the Niger Delta region.
“Nigerian union clearly reinforces the fact of self determination and that Nigeria remains a very divided and separated entity whose claim to unity remains a fraud of gargantuan proportion,” Dokubo said in a statement issued on his behalf by Rex Ekiugbo Anighoro, his spokesman.
“The celebrated victory of Buhari is not the victory of the people but victory of regional conspiracy and supremacy. The voting Partern has clearly shown that the Gambari North and the Yorubas are United in the conquest of the Niger Deltans and the Igbos of defunct Biafra with the middle belt now used as pawns.
“The victory of Muhammadu Buhari is a historical reminder that we are a conquered people who are mere appendages existing at the pleasure of the supremacist and the regional overlords.
“We remain a people separated by our ideologies and interests, we are not integrated nor reconciled.”
He alleged that the incoming government could attempt to undermine the interest of the Niger Delta and called for a return to the creeks.
“The conditions that advanced the need to embrace the creeks have been sadly re energised, it is clear that a vicious government who may maim and murder the voice of the so called minorities may have just been birthed,” he said.
“Indeed integration is nonexistent as regional gang ups and supremacy is symbolic with this victory.
“While President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan enjoys his moments and bask in the euphoria of a now world renowned statesman having congratulated Muhammadu Buhari his conqueror, we must quickly remind that our struggle was never about Jonathan nor about presidency.
“President Goodluck Jonathan was an establishment beneficiary of our struggle, our sweat and blood that many bled and died for, he was never in the struggle and he can never wish away our collective march forward for statesmanship. Yes Indeed to an extent he was a mitigating factor in self determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical, this mitigation he seem to have willingly repudiated.
“The days coming will be critical, we shall study all the conditions and consult widely before determining the way going forward for our collective existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the quest of integration or further separate us.”
