Rivers elders, youths rejects Asari Dokubo’s Biafra by nairalandankrah: 10:24am On Jun 14
He is an attention-seeking joker, says Fed Govt

Kinsmen of the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, elders and youths from the Niger Delta have distanced themselves from the declaration of Biafra by ex-agitator Alhaji Asari Dokubo.

The Federal Government described Dokubo’s formation of Biafra Customary Government as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker craving attention’’

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on the development Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will not be distracted by the absurdity.

“I am sure you have heard of the theatre of the absurd, that is the best way I can describe it. If Asari Dokubo wants to form and run a fathom government, I think he is free to do so.

“This administration will not be distracted because we still have a lot to do. We are not ready to give any attention or time to a joker like Dokubo who is just looking for attention.

“We will just take it as one of these entertainment things. The beauty about Nigeria is that it is never a dull country, you must have one thing or the other to entertain you,’’ he said.

“The Ikwerre People’s Congress in its right along with other credible sociocultural organisations in Ikwerre nation are the only bodies with the legitimate authority to make representations and speak on behalf of the Ikwerre nation and her people on issues that affect our interest.

“On this note, we state categorically that although Asari’s forebearers owe their ancestry to Ikwerre nation, and whereas Asari is a Niger Delta son with his fundamental rights to his identity and affinities, he does not have the right, authority, permission and or legitimacy to speak on behalf of the Ikwerre nation or to speak solely for the Niger Delta under any guise either by himself or through his cronies or agents.

“No doubt we have disputation and aspirations in pursuit of the respect and demand for self-determination over our lands and resources including political rights as a people in the Lower Niger and the Niger Delta in particular which aspirations we share with our neighbours and ethnic counterparts,

no position, negotiation or consultations will be made over the Ikwerre nation without our voluntary consent and mandate.

“Ikwerre is too big for that foul play and this is trite knowledge. This view is sacred and undoubtedly includes the rest of the Niger Delta because nobody including Asari Dokubo can impose his personal Will or agenda on any ethnic block in our region. Therefore we ask that the Ikwerre nation be left out of Asari’s diatribe”.

Also, the Southsouth Elders’ Forum (SEF) said the zone would not be part of Asari’s Biafra.

Its Coordinator, Sarah Igbe, said the Niger Delta, including the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), were not part of his secessionist agenda

“We respect Asari Dokubo as a leader, but his purported declaration of Ijaw land into his proposed Biafra is his mere opinion that exists only on the faces of newspapers and not the resolve of our people.

Lai Mohammed : the govt will not be distracted but you are giving press conference about it. Truth be told, you and your useless govt are concerned.

I am also and Ijaw man, Asari is entitled to his aspirations but including the entire race into the delusional Biafra is a no no for me and my people.
Truth be told, he is speaking for himself and not for me.

Most of the shit these flatin0s write online doesn't mean anything, the SE/SS solidarity only exists online......most likely that even when you call for a referendum that most of these Niger Deltans would vote to have their own country separate from biafra.

The top brass leaders, youths and traditional leaders in the south don't support your biafran pipe dream, your cousin wike despite the initial support from flatskvlls treats ipobs like shit that they are and has on countless occasions used the army to attack them.....even on one occasion arresting dozens of ipob women for over two months......some were raped by the army while in detention and no outrage from you SS brothers.....tells you what you need to know.
