Niger Delta Activist and ex-militant, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo on Sunday threatened fire and brimstone if President Goodluck Jonathan does not return as president in 2015.
Speaking on Politics Today, he said “2015 is already a settled matter; Goodluck Jonathan will be president in 2015. Whether they contest or they don’t contest, Goodluck Jonathan will be president,” he said adding that he would be ready for violence if needed.
Replying to comments made by former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, he warned that that “if they say the blood of the dogs and the baboon will be soaked in water on the street, in blood on the street, in salt water on the street, we will help them soak them in blood”.
The former Head of State was reported to have said that “If what happened in 2011 (alleged rigging) should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood,” in May of 2012.
Buhari spoke in Hausa while addressing members of the CPC from Niger State, who paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna. He also warned that 2015 would be bloody if the elections were not transparent, just as he dismissed reports that he would not contest the 2015 presidency.
Buhari who painted a gory picture of Nigeria as that of a hound and a monkey engaged in a battle for survival said, “God willing, by 2015, something will happen. They either conduct a free and fair election or they go a very disgraceful way”.
Declares Intention To Join PDP
The fiery-speaking Dokubo while making public his decision to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), also explained the reason behind dumping the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
Dokubo, who claimed to own the party secretariat in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State, noted that “somebody cannot stay in Lagos and decide for Rivers people” adding that it is an insult on Rivers people, we will be our governor, we will be the governorship candidate of our party”.
He said the situation “is an insult on me, insult on the people of Rivers” warning that “it is not going to be possible”.
He then said “we will not leave Goodluck (Jonathan) alone, I will declare for the PDP” noting that “we will fight, because this battle, there is no retreat no surrender”.
