The mouthpiece of the Lagos State House of Assembly and Chairman, House Committee on Information, Strategy, Security and Publicity representing Epe Constituency II, Hon Segun Olulade has called on President Goodluck Jonathan to call the leader of Niger Delta Peoples Volunteers Force Mujahid Asari-Dokubo to order over continuous issuance of inflammatory statements by Asari Dokubo.

According to Olulade, the perpetual issuance of inflammatory statements against anyone who does not align with political position of Mr President by Asari Dokubo is unbecoming. He noted that Asari does not even spare elder statesmen and national figures in his array of insults against them.

“Asari has demonstrated attitude capable of disuniting the nation by overbearing his ethnic sentiments in addressing national issues. I cannot imagine statements uttered by Asari in view of life-threatening attack on General Muhammadu Buhari in Kaduna last week”. “If the attacker had succeeded, I don’t think Asari will have a ground to be saying what he said because by now, the nation might have been drifted into serious ethnic crisis capable of consuming the unity of the country”, Olulade said.

Olulade said he is more worried that each time Asari makes inflammatory statements, President Jonathan looks away from the damaging effects of Dokubo’s statements. The lawmaker said he is even surprised that sometimes the militant leader takes to the pages of social media to threaten President Jonathan to dare national figures and take to hard measures on them particularly in the opposition.

“My message to Asari-Dokubo is that Nigeria is a nation of ethnic variables, but the status of President of the country or any national political office holder transcends ethnic interest, and the earlier Asari realises this the better. With the magnitude of challenges the nation is facing, and the general elections getting closer, I think the President needs to douse all ethnic excesses beginning from his kinsman so that Mr President will be dissociated from Asari’s utterances since many Nigerians insulted by Dokubo have perceived that he is speaking Mr President’s mind.

While concluding, Olulade said Mr Asari-Dokubo has taken a flight away from peace building, noting that his recent pronouncements over Chibok schoolgirls abduction, bring back our girls advocacy group and attack on General Buhari are all condemnable and unpopular.
