The Vice President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Mr Issa Aremu has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to resign if he cannot call to order the Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta, Mr Kingsley Kuku and former Niger Delta Militant, Mr Asari Dokubo as he reacted to the inciting statements made by these men.

In Mr. Aremu’s words “It was regrettable that people of questionable character were the ones speaking for the president instead of those constitutionally empowered to do so”.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives have accused both the Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta, Mister Kingsley Kuku and former Niger Delta Militant, Mister Asari Dokubo of threatening the peace of the country following their incitiing statements insisting that President Goodluck Jonathan must be allowed to contest the 2015 presidential election for peace to reign in the country.

And considering a motion on the urgent need to check the utterances of some Nigerians which is capable of causing disaffection among the people, the House resolved to direct the Police to investigate the rationale behind the utterances of  Mr. Kuku and former Niger Delta Militant, Asari Dokubo.

And in reaction to the proposed investigation by the House, a group from the Niger Delta, the South-South Restoration Forum has vowed to institute a legal action if any of them is arrested claiming that this is not the first time such statements have been made in the country and have gone unquestioned and  wondered why  this one has attracted the attention of members of House of Representatives, seeking their arrest.
