What Asari Dokubo Said When Asked If Presidency Should Remain In North Or Shift To The South

Popular Niger Delta activist, Asari Dokubo was recently interviewed by Chukwudi Akasike. During the interview, Asari Dokubo spoke about various issues affecting the nation as a whole including the National conference that was held by president Goodluck Jonathan during his regime.

Speaking about the conference, the Niger Delta activist said he was opposed to it and he is still opposed to it. Asari Dokubo noted that anything that is not sovereign can not produce anything that would be satisfactory to everybody. 

Asari Dokubo is a major political figure of the ijaw ethnic group in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. He founded the Niger Delta people's Volunteer Force; a group that became one of the most prominent armed groups operating in the Niger Delta region.

During the interview, the activist was asked if he thinks the presidency should remain in the North or shift to the southern part of the country. The former Niger Delta militant responded to the question by saying; "I am not contesting for the presidency. For the sake of justice, the people who want to benefit are not fighting; their children are not fighting. Why should I be the one to fight for them?"

This is a funny one from Asari Dokubo but it should not be overlooked. Asari Dokubo has made it clear here that he has no interest in the presidency and he is not ready to fight for those who will benefit if the presidency shifts to southern Nigeria.

What do you have to say about Asari Dokubo's response to the question he was asked?
