Asari Dokubo has issued a warning that the crude oil in Ijawland does not belong to Nigeria but the Ijaw people and warned the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo to stop coming to Ijaw land for peace moves knowing full well the right thing to do, Vanguard reports.

In his warning he described his tour of the region as none other than a meaningless jamboree adding that there is no basis for it.

According to him, “This jamboree by the vice president is funny. Are they our overlords or are we being colonized that they are coming to visit here and there? Don’t they know what is right?

“The oil belongs to us; it does not belong to Nigeria. Ijaw oil belongs to us. If Itsekiri say their oil belongs to Nigeria, that is their business and if Urhobo say same of their oil, that is also their business and same applies to others.

“But we, Ijaw, are saying that Ijaw oil belongs to Ijaw, they should leave our oil alone.


“That is the issue at stake and people are not addressing these issues as it should be addressed. So for me, they are only postponing the doomsday, they should do what is right because the oil of Ijaw people belong to them.”

Commenting on the Buhari-led administration, he score the government as zero which has only worsened the situation in Nigeria

He said: “Is there anything to appraise in the Buhari led government? What is there to appraise? Can you multiply zero? If you multiply zero, what would it give you?”

“From N200 a dollar during the time of former President Goodluck Jonathan, which was the highest, to a roving price of N450 per dollar to salary not being paid for months in all the states, this is a zero government and there is nothing to appraise.

“That President left and the people are not allowed to know the reason their president left? That fuel price was increased from N87 per litre when Goodluck left office to N145, what is there to appraise? You can’t multiply zero by zero because if you do, what you get is zero, so this is a zero government.”

Asari Dokubo further denied ever making any threat there would be war if Jonathan did not win 2015 presidential election and took urgent step to correct it.

He said, “Did anyone hear me say that? If there is nothing in the Niger Delta as they claim, why are they perambulating here? Watch that video where I was quoted to have made such statements properly and tell me where I was quoted to have said so.

“What I actually said was that if Goodluck win and they attack us, we would fight back, that was the statement we made, else, if there is peace in the region, why the perambulation?”
