ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has unleashed scathing criticism on the government led by President Bola Tinubu, declaring it as the worst in history.
In a viral video clip on Wednesday, Asari expressed the discontent of some Niger Delta people, particularly the Ijaw ethnic group, towards the present administration.
As a once staunch supporter of Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the election season, Asari lamented that his earlier assurances to the Ijaw people about the government’s performance have proven inaccurate.
He accused the Tinubu administration of becoming a nightmare for the Ijaw community.
Asari highlighted the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State as a significant indicator and a test for President Tinubu’s administration. According to him, if any consequences arise due to alleged bad governance, the spark would originate in Rivers State.
In the video, Asari stated, “This is the worst government. Ijaw people feel this is the worst government.
“This is a nightmare for them. When we were campaigning for you, many Ijaw people called and said, ‘Presido, Tinubu is your friend oo, we hope he is not going to look the other way.’
“And I assured everybody that if Tinubu fails, they should hold me responsible. Now they are asking me if I am still sure.
“Rivers State is a litmus test; if there is any fire, it will start in Rivers State. I cannot stop them. As an individual, I cannot stop them; I cannot even stand in their way.”
