leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, has
described Rivers State Governor and reelected chairman of Nigeria
Governors Forum, Rotimi Amaechi as a “traitor.”
programme in Port Harcourt on Saturday, Asari said Amaechi’s political
ambition did not tally with the ambition of the people of the state.
“Amaechi and his commissioners
can go back to slavery and continue to serve the northerners, who claim
to be born to rule. We will never go back to slavery. We know the
quality of those who are commissioners in Rivers State.
“Amaechi is a traitor and he will be
treated like a traitor. Amaechi is not more Ikwerre than me. It is about
liberty to rule. Amaechi wants to take us back to slavery. It will not
be possible. The era of northern godfathers is gone.
“Amaechi and his ambition must be tied
to the ambition of his people. In Kano, Amaechi said he would run as
vice-president, if invited. I speak with all sense of responsibility.
The oppressed people of the Niger Delta, through President Jonathan,
will win in 2015. We will win clearly and convincingly.
“President Goodluck Jonathan will win in
2015. If they do not allow him to win, they will not be able to handle
the consequences. An end must come to the suppression, oppression,
repression and marginalisation of the people of the Niger Delta.
“The South-South and South-East people
have been brushed aside for too long. People of the North said they
would make Nigeria ungovernable for Jonathan, if he won in 2011, which
they are doing.”
