Asari Dokubo knocks Tinubu over appointments, says Nigeria not Lagos
By Matthew Atungwu
Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader in the Niger Delta, has criticized President Bola Tinubu’s appointments as being biased.
Dokubo bemoaned Tinubu’s biassed appointments and their potential harm to Nigeria’s security.
The former agitator questioned why Tinubu chose Bosun Tijani to be the Minister of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy in a widely shared video, given his history of abuses and complaints.
According to Dokubo: “Nigerians voted for the Muslim-Muslim ticket because they know who Tinubu is, I did not vote for Tinubu because he’s a Muslim but because I know what he’s capable of doing, even though today his appointments are one-sided.
“We must speak out; this is not Lagos. The president must know that the path he’s following in making appointments as if Nigeria is for Lagos is dangerous. We know he already has a lot of problems but we must point this thing out.
“Why should somebody like Bosun Tijani be in this government after all the abuse and criticisms? Mr President should look back at the appointments and balance it, this country belongs to all of us.”
