Leader of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, NDVF, Alhaji Asari Dokubo has
said the victory of General Mohammadu Buhari as President, has re
energized the needs for militants to return to the creeks.
The days coming will be critical; we shall study all the conditions and
consult widely before determining the way going forward for our collective
existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the
quest of integration or further separate us,” Dokubo said in a Press
Statement issued by spokesman, Ekiugbo Anighoro.



The former Niger Delta fighter denied using a twitter handle, @asaridokubo
to say he supports any government in power.
According to Dokuboh, said the election of Muhammadu Buhari as president
“is a clear indication that the country is not united” and accused the
Yoruba and Hausa of collaborating to frustrate Jonathan, who hails from
the Niger Delta region.
“Nigerian union clearly reinforces the fact of self determination and that
Nigeria remains a very divided and separated entity whose claim to unity
remains a fraud of gargantuan proportion,” Dokubo said in a statement
issued on his behalf by Rex Ekiugbo Anighoro, his spokesman.
The statement said:
“The celebrated victory of Buhari is not the victory of the people but
victory of regional conspiracy and supremacy. The voting Partern has
clearly shown that the Gambari North and the Yorubas are United in the
conquest of the Niger Deltans and the Igbos of defunct Biafra with the
middle belt now used as pawns.
“The victory of Muhammadu Buhari is a historical reminder that we are a
conquered people who are mere appendages existing at the pleasure of the
supremacist and the regional overlords.
“We remain a people separated by our ideologies and interests, we are not
integrated nor reconciled.” He alleged that the incoming government could
attempt to undermine the interest of the Niger Delta and called for a
return to the creeks.
“The conditions that advanced the need to embrace the creeks have been
sadly re energised, it is clear that a vicious government who may maim and
murder the voice of the so called minorities may have just been birthed,”
he said.
“Indeed integration is nonexistent as regional gang ups and supremacy is
symbolic with this victory. “While President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan
enjoys his moments and bask in the euphoria of a now world renowned
statesman having congratulated Muhammadu Buhari his conqueror, we must
quickly remind that our struggle was never about Jonathan nor about
presidency.
“President Goodluck Jonathan was an establishment beneficiary of our
struggle, our sweat and blood that many bled and died for, he was never in
the struggle and he can never wish away our collective march forward for
statesmanship. Yes Indeed to an extent he was a mitigating factor in
self-determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical, this mitigation he
seem to have willingly repudiated.
“The days coming will be critical, we shall study all the conditions and
consult widely before determining the way going forward for our collective
existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the
quest of integration or further separate us.”
