Former militant leader, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari, has predicted that embattled Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, “will go the way he came.”

Amaechi broke a record in 2007 when he came to power without contesting election but by virtue of a Supreme Court verdict after the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) removed his name from the ballot at the late hour. Even though he contested and won a second term in 2007, Dokubo might have been referring to the manner he originally assumed power in 2007.

Amaechi, according to Dokubo, Founder and leader of the Niger Delta People’s Salvation Front/Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, is corrupt and does not deserve to remain in office.

“We will not hide under any other organization to fight the monumental mis-governance and corruption that goes on in Rivers State,” he wrote last night on his Facebook wall. “No person with an atom of morality will support a government that annually squander 3 billion dollars . . . Rotimi Amaechi will go the way he came,” Dokubo added.

His outburst came hours after an estimated 10,000 men, women, and youths marched in Port Harcourt to demand for the resignation of Governor Amaechi, who has irked the Nigerian Government by allegedly opposing President Goodluck Jonathan. During the march, held two days ahead of the election of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) in which Amaechi insists on contesting for a second term against the wishes of the Presidency, the protesters called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the governor for alleged corruption.
