ENDSARS Protest Is A Waste Of Time, Let’s Join Hands Together To Achieve Biafra – Asari Dokubo Tells Niger Deltans
Ex-Niger Delta warlord, Alhaji Asari Dokubo in a fiery 8:57 minutes video on his Facebook page on Sunday, addressed Niger Deltans participating in the nationwide #ENDSARS protest which he described as a waste of time.
He said: “There is nothing to restructure or remodel about Nigeria. Instead of wasting our (Niger Deltans) time in cooperating with the Yorubas and Igbos in ENDSARS or restructuring protests, the only solution as Niger Delta people is to team together with the Ogonis and the Igbos and Efiks and reinvent Biafra because nobody can oppress the Ijaw man in Biafra.
What we need to do is to seek ye first the political kingdom and every other thing will be added to you because you will control and hold your oil.
“Anything else is not going to work unless we stand up and fight for Biafra. Anybody talking about restructuring, Niger Delta republic or an Ibo Biafra is an enemy of our people because biafra most surely come whether you like it or not.
He also lamented the poor funding of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC compared to the North East Development Commission, NEDC stating that regard less of the debit owed the NDDC by multi-national oil companies for the development of the region, the Federal Government has failed to do anything in ensuring that the debts are paid to the agency.
Asari also cautioned former President Goodluck Jonathan not to fall for calls by emissaries beckoning on him to run for the 2023 presidential election.
Despite being a strong supporter of Dr Goodluck while in and out of office, Asari who expressed displeasure over his consistent visits to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, used unprintable words on the former president who he lampooned for consistently visiting the Presidential Villa.
He said: “Goodluck Jonathan is now fooling himself running around to Aso Rock thinking that they are going to give him the presidency come 2023.
”They are not going to give you (Jonathan) anything. They will disgrace you and take away that small respect that you have and throw you in the trash can. But we are watching, let them prove us wrong and let us see.
Radio Biafra Should Indeed Be Completely Banned And It’s Culprits Brought To Book – Opinion
In Nigeria, it is important to note that Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB), has been proscribed, however, this outlawed group still runs a radio station within the Nigerian airspace.
Going by the secessionist ideologies of the IPOB, the Federal Government deemed it necessary to completely disband this group, but it’s radio station, still sends it’s signals into million of homes in Nigeria, thereby selling their secessionist views to the public, while making use of every opportunity to speak I’ll of the Nigerian Government.
In my opinion, the Federal Government of NIgeria, the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation and the Federal Radio Cooperation Of Nigeria, should look into this menace and bring to book all the key players that may have allowed this situation.
Indeed, it’s quite saddening that some groups are still pushing for the separation of our dear country and I urge every Nigerian to follow after unity.
Dear friends, what is your take on this delicate issue of discussion?

October 1st: We Are Not In Support Of IPOB’s Sit At Home Order – MASSOB
Just a few days to October 1, Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has pulled out of the sit-at-home order handed down by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
It could be recalled that IPOB on Wednesday, September 23, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, ordered that all Biafranlands should on October 1 which marked Nigerian Independence day shutdown their markets, schools and businesses as a mark of respect to all those who were killed as a result of terrorism in Nigeria.
However, MASSOB group leader, Uchenna Madu, in a statement on Thursday, September 24, declared that the group would not participate in the protest over various killings and injustice done to the people of South East in the past years.
MASSOB noted that Nigeria as a failed state at 60, after independence and does not worth celebrating.
The statement reads; “We declare Nigeria as a dead state which has nothing to celebrate. At 60 years of independence, Nigeria is still struggling to stand up. Other nations, that got political independence with Nigeria at the same period like Malaysia, have gone very far in global recognition.
“Though the British colonial masters did not design Nigeria to flourish and progress as a reputable entity.
“Under President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigeria state has turned to Fulani empire where every other major and minor ethnic nationalities are not regarded. Fulani acknowledges their cows more than other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.
The group noted that any exercise that will derail the organised protest strike against the incessant increase of fuel prices and electric bills by the Nigeria Labour Union, Trade Union and Civil Society Organisations is working against the overall interest of the citizens.
According to MASSOB, “October 1 is a day of a national protest against the insensitivity of President Buhari’s administration.”
Madu added that “Biafra sit-at-home exercise is not significant on Nigeria’s special day. Whatever exercise Biafrans observe on October 1 will be viewed as supporting dead Nigeria. May 30 is Biafra day anniversary,”
In the same vein, the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL), an umbrella body of various youth leadership in the country has urged the public, especially youths to disregard the order in the interest of peace and harmony.
COSEYL in a statement signed by its President-General, Goodluck Ibem and Secretary-General, Kanice Igwe, noted that such orders had resulted to bloodshed in the past and, therefore, advised that it is not necessary complying with such again.
