''I am a tribalist'' - Asari Dokubo

The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer
Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, on
Thursday stated that his controversial views on
the nation's contemporary politics were not an
indication of his hatred for the North.
The ex-militant leader, who said he had begun a
nationwide peace move, however, noted that he
was an "Ijaw tribalist."
This peace move started after a meeting he said
he held last week with Major Hamza Al-
Mustapha, Mohammed Abacha, Alhaji Shettima
Yerima, Dr. Fredrick Fasehun and Chief Ralph
Uwazuruike in Owerri, the Imo State
capital.Speaking with journalists in his
residence in Abuja, the former President of the
Ijaw Youth Council said having spent a greater
part of his life to defend the oppressed, it would
be wrong for people to consider him as one who
hates the North or any other part of the country.
He said, "I am a tribalist, and I have no apology
for that."
