I Do Not Work For Jonathan, The Life Of Buhari Is More Important To Me – Asari Dokubo Laments
Militant leader Asari Dokubo has called out Mr. President over a recent statement he made showing support to Buhari. He also denied sponsoring the bomb attack on Buhari. Speaking with news men in Abuja today, July 29th, he said;
“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. It is unfortunate that the president made such a statement. I wonder why the President will be promoting one person above that of other Nigerians.
“That statement from the President was very unfortunate. I do have the capacity to tell the President to apologize, but I still insist that he should not have made such a statement.
“Soon after the blast, a cross-gender person came out and was arrested. Even the mother of the person arrested said he was insane”.
“Social media reports said I gave them N5 million to carry out the attack. These things are masterminded. The first one is against President Jonathan and the other is against me.
“I did not pay anybody to carry out any assassination attempt on Buhari. I do not have anything against him. He is not a threat. He will fail in 2015. For the records, I do not operate a Twitter account and anyone saying I tweeted that there will be more attacks is only using my name.”
“They want to silence me because they know the role I will play in 2015. They have also sponsored reports in Benin Republic that I am the person financing Boko Haram.
“Another islamic scholar also said I am the one sponsoring Boko Haram to destroy the north on behalf of President Jonathan. “The Deputy Minority Leader in the House of Representatives said I spoke on behalf of President Jonathan.
That means Buhari is the commander-in-chief of Boko Haram in the north. His allies came out and made inflammatory statements during the 2011 elections.”
