Forum condemns attack on Dokubo

A civil society group in the Niger Delta, The Foundation for Peace and Non-violence in Nigeria (TFPNVN), has condemned the attacks on Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Prof. Charles Dokubo, by some Ijaw indigenes.

A statement by the group’s president, Onengiya Erokosima, said Prof. is an Ijaw son and any insult to him and the office he occupies is an insult to the entire Ijaw nation.

Erokosima, who described Dokubo as a decent and honest son of Ijaw, lambasted the critics of the don, and accused them of having sinister motive.

The statement reads: “The Foundation for Peace and Non-Violence in Nigeria condemns the spate of mudslinging against Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs and Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Prof. Charles Dokubo.

“The Ijaw nation is being embarrassed by the attempts to soil the reputation of the Special Adviser by some Ijaw sons, either jostling for his position in the Presidency or having an interest to protect.

“Prof. Dokubo is a decent man; he does not deserve such mudslinging. Nemesis will catch up with the perpetrators and peddlers of such lies against him.”

Erokosima urged the naysayers to allow Dokubo focus on his responsibilities instead of distracting him with frivolities and unsubstantiated allegations.
