Buhari Wished To Give Niger Delta Region Zero Percent In Petroleum Act — Asari Dokubo



Former leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Mujaheed Asari Dokubo has opined that Buhari seeks to cheat the host communities in the Niger Delta region over the equity shareholding in the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB..

According to Asari Dokubo, the three percent equity share given to the Niger Delta host communities is an insult to them.

He stressed that President Buhari does not have any connection with the people of the Niger Delta so he chooses to do whatever he likes with their lives. Dokubo called Buhari a weak president who does not have the power to restructure anything in the country.

He said, “It is one of the greatest insults that have ever befallen the region. I am not surprised with the character of the (President Muhammadu) Buhari regime. Even the three per cent earmarked for the region, I am sure Buhari is not satisfied with that. If he had his way, he would have wanted us to have zero per cent.

”That is his antecedent. That is the way he behaves. I am not surprised. Anybody can read him perfectly. The so-called political elites are totally captured. They are so afraid and lily-livered that they cannot say anything.

”He (Buhari) has sent it back for an amendment, (admitting) that it doesn’t have geographical spread. Do his appointments have geographical spread or respect Federal Character?

“So, in the midst of these things, one does not want to talk any longer, because the people you are talking to do not even appreciate what you are saying. The analysts will come and call you all sorts of names. I am now part of the ‘siddon look’ group.”
