Niger Delta activist, Mr. Famous Daunemigha yesterday cautioned the leader of Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, over his recent comments inciting youths in the region against the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Speaking on the deadline for amnesty programme with journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, the former youths leader said Goodluck Jonathan was president for six years but could not review the terminal date of the amnesty programme.
He noted that every known ex-militant in the region had embraced the new leadership and also expressed their willingness to work with him.
Daunemigha, who is the former vice president of Ijaw Youths Council, IYC, when Dokubo was the president of the council, said his recent comment would amount to nothing as the Niger Delta region could no longer be a battle ground only for his selfish benefits.
Still, he said the IYC and Ijaw National Congress could not compel their son to extend the terminal date of December 2015.
According to him, the agitation for the betterment of the Niger Delta region has gone beyond physical confrontation and is now more of an intellectual engagement.
He said Dokubo should accept the realities on ground after Jonathan conceded defeat and congratulated President Buhari.
“I expect the likes of Asari to follow the example and accept the realities on ground, instead of mourning more than the bereaved,” he stated.
He warned that youths in the Niger Delta region should not make themselves vulnerable to the antics of Dokubo by calling for the resumption of militant activities in the region.
He also called on all well-meaning Ijaw elders and youths to give their support and encourage Buhari as he meant well for the region.
