Former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo has been criticized for endorsing the Presidential aspiration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, while downplaying Peter Obi.
Some Nigerians accused Dokubo of fighting a Jihad by endorsing Tinubu, while antagonizing Obi and other South-East Presidential aspirants.
A few days ago, Dokubo said only Tinubu has the pedigree among all the 2023 Presidential aspirants.
Speaking with Arise Television, the former militant leader said only Tinubu has the right to urge Nigerians to vote for him because he is the only one that has ‘transformed a State.’
While applauding Tinubu, Dokubo claimed that Obi never recorded any achievement when he was serving as governor of Anambra State.
Stressing that Obi only provided boreholes and roads as governor, Dokubo insisted that Nigerians need someone better to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He challenged Nigerians celebrating the achievement of the presidential aspirant to travel to other countries to see real achievements.
However, Nigerians accused the former Niger Delta warlord of working against the South-East Presidential ambition.

@SodiqTade: “Asari Dokubo should consider a comic role. He dragged everyone but managed to praise Tinubu and he even made case for Yahaya Bello. This same Dokubo said Peter Obi didn’t no anything extraordinary in Anambra but said Tinubu laid Lagos foundation. Someone should give him Costume.”
@SundayOlasunbo: “People like Asari Dokubo will always support BAT because BAT knows how to empower criminal gangs to make them become more powerful.”
@truthzzzzzzz: “Asari dokubo is nothing more than a jihadist and he makes it soo obvious. Why else would He criticize non Muslims and praise Muslims even though data proves that Nigeria has faired best under Christian leadership and worst under the other? Asari should be quiet please.”
@EL_GEEZZE: “Asari Dokubo has been strategically positioned to antagonize the Southern Aspirants. Imagine thinking Yahya Bello and Tinubu will make better Presidents than Peter Obi.
‘Divide and Conquer’ in motion once again.”
@IykeTweets_: “Asari Dokubo’s bill won’t pay itself. The man needs the money to keep flowing to his side even without doing any reasonable job.
“And the only “president” to continue paying him is Bola Tinubu. Peter Obi wouldn’t dare give him anything. He is infact protecting his investment.”
@JOSEPHOSITA12: “What do you expect Asari Dokubo to say about Peter Obi when Peter has no Kobo to share? Of course he will sing Tinubu song knowing the man can throw stolen dollars around.”
