Throwback: How Asari Dokubo Has Adapted To Nigeria's Unity After Declaring Biafra Government

As the year is gradually coming to end, Nigerians have not forgotten how Asari Dokubo, the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, had unlawfully declared the formation of Biafra Customary Government (BCG) which he claimed was an opportunity for Biafrans to take their destiny in their hands and bring freedom to themselves & their unborn generations.

As gathered from a report given by the Cable News earlier this year, Asari Dokubo at that time, resolved to set up provincial structures for the government he created unlawfully.

Apparently, Dokubo's action of unlawfully declaring Biafra government, was a clear evidence of his opposition towards the unity of the country. It is quite believable that Asari's Biafran government was illegal and had no recognition anywhere in the country.

However, from his recent interview with Chukwudi Akasike, here are few reasons why Asari Dokubo has adapted to Nigeria's unity after declaring Biafra government earlier this year.

HIS SILENCE OVER THE HAPPENINGS IN THE COUNTRY

Notably, Asari Dokubo had been silent over a lot of things that has been happening in the country. Despite being an activist who should have been lending his voice to certain issues in the country, he chose to remain calm and follow the leadership of the Nigerian government. This clearly shows that he has adapted to Nigeria's unity.

HIS STATEMENT REGARDING TO POWER SHIFT

While Dokubo was asked if power should remain in the North or shift to the South, he made it known that he was not contesting for the presidency and also the people who want to benefit from power shift to the South are not fighting. This clearly entails that Dokubo would feel comfortable if the north or south takes over power in 2023. Hence, it can be inferred from his statement, that he has adapted to Nigeria's unity.

HIS OPINION TOWARDS THE PROGRESS OF NIGERIA

Asari's opinion after he was asked what was the way forward for Nigeria, clearly indicates that he has completely adapted to Nigeria's unity. He opined that the government should convoke a sovereign national conference where dialogue would be allowed.
