Hands off Bayelsa Election Or Face The Consequences – Asari Dokubo Warns FG

by on December 11, 2015

The Leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo has given the Buhari led Federal Government one week ultimatum to hands off alleged plan to rig the governorship election in Bayelsa State.

Asari-Dokubo in a statement issued in Yenagoa, accused the Federal Government and its agencies of collaborating with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to rig the election and install the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Timipre Sylva, as winner.

He warned that  ex-militants have regrouped under a new formation known as the Reformed Ex-Agitators of the Niger Delta (REND), which he leads to press for a democratic process in determining the outcome of the election.

His statement read;  “If by next week the Federal Government does not hands off from the Bayelsa polls by allowing the people to freely choose their leader but still interfering through the observed various guises and deception, then we would have no option than to return to the creeks to press for our rights as patriotic citizens being unduly oppressed and dehumanized all in the name of politics”.

“We have said it before that President Buhari is executing an anti-Ijaw agenda and his aim is to steal our God-given resources to rebuild the north destroyed by Boko Haram. That is why he is hell-bent on manipulating the electoral process in Bayelsa State and hand it over to the APC. They are exploiting Sylva’s greed and desperation for power and therefore using him to carry out their evil agenda. But we want them to know that this country will go up in flames if they try it. Boko Haram will be a child’s play if President Buhari and his APC think they can upturn the people’s mandate. It would be a grave injustice which can never stand. We are Ijaw people and we have never been conquered”.

Dokubo-Asari also said that going by the results already declared by INEC, PDP’s candidate, Governor Seriake Dickson, had won 6 of the 7 local governments declared with a margin of 33,154 votes and has by this fulfilled constitutional requirement of 2/3 spread and popular votes.

Asari-Dokubo said the new group REND frowned at the role of the Joint Task Force (JTF) in the Southern Ijaw election saga, alleging that the military received direct instruction from President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the APC candidate, Timipre Sylva, was declared winner against the wish of the people.

He therefore called on the Federal Government to ensure the election is rescheduled and conducted in a transparent process.   He threatened that if the Federal government still interferes in the process till next week and, then REND would launch “a full scale agitation to save our people from modern day slavery of intimidation, oppression and dictators.

    when will dis guy learn to just shut up and respect himself. because you are not yet in jail for all your thieving in the name of agitation and treasonable statement, you still have the guts to come here and talk disrespectfully to our president.

    don’t worry, you day is coming then we will see what you are capable of. you talk so stupidly with a clear lack of common sense and threaten the entire Nigerian nation. i wonder why i’m even wasting data on you.

    you attempt at seeking relevance in this dispensation won’t work because even your ijaw brothers can see through your deception now.
