Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo is not happy that President Jonthan said Nigeria would have boiled if Gen. Buhari had been killed in the Kaduna bomb blast.
Former militant warlord and leader of the Niger-Delta Peoples Volunteers Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has come down hard on his town’s man, President Goodluck Jonathan, calling him a big coward over statements credited to the President where he allegedly said that Nigeria would have boiled if former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari had been killed in the purported assassination attempt on his life in Kaduna State last week.
Asari said he is not happy that Jonathan should say such a thing when there are many Nigerians who are killed by the day by the dreaded Islamic insurgent group, Boko Haram, wondering why Nigeria would be at war just because Buhari is involved.
Describing the President’s comment as unnecessary, Asari who has always supported the President’s rule and has even vowed to wage a war if Jonathan fails to be re-elected next year, stated that placing the life of one Nigerian above the over 15,000 persons who have died through Boko Haram bomb attacks is very wrong and cowardly.
Hear the angry Asari Dokubo:
I do not work for Jonathan. What the President said was wrong. The life of Buhari is not more important than 87 people that died in that blast and the 0ver 15,000 souls that have been wasted by Boko Haram.
It is unfortunate that the President made such a statement. I wonder why the President will be promoting one person above other Nigerians.
That statement from the President was very unfortunate. It is an act of cowardice for him to have said that. I still insist that he should not have made such a statement.
