Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Front (NDPSF), a group led by Muhajid Asari-Dokubo, has insisted that the Sovereign National Conference is the only avenue that would give the various ethnic nationalities in Nigeria the platform to discuss the future of the nation.

Besides, the group stated that it is only when people are allowed to bare their minds and articulate issues based on their convictions that a solution to the Nigeria question will be found.

This was the position of the group during its 10th anniversary at Ughelli town in Delta State, on the theme, “Dr. Jonathan Goodluck Presidency – National Conference/Dialogue – A fluke or the expected reality?”

Asari-okubo, who spoke through a conference call on the occasion, called on the youths of Niger Delta to stand up and resist what he described “as slavery by the elite”, who he stressed have ‘’mortgaged the future of the people of Niger Delta and other minorities within the contraception called Nigeria.”

He demanded, ‘’ total freedom and independence from the Nigerian Enterprise as Nigeria remains the mistake of 1914; a mere geographical expression; an artificial creation of the British Empire and a failed union.’’

He declared that the ‘’North remains a parasite, who feeds fat from the God given wealth of the South and yet sees and treats the South as a conquered territory, seeing the people of the South as slaves, whose land must be occupied in furtherance of their expansionist and neo colonialist agenda.’’

He called on the youths of the Niger Delta not to be afraid of anyone but to take their destiny in their hands and free themselves from ‘’slavery as enough was truly enough.’’

He warned that except that the National Conference is genuine and outcome subjected to a referendum, a revolution might occur in the country, as according to him, the National Assembly lacks legitimacy to right the wrongs of the past.


  1. We hav a democratically elected President who has many advisers. Our Presidend has spoken and we all heard him loud and clear. D outcome or decision or resolution of d nat dialogue WILL BE SENT TO NASS. We are not sure any Nigerian is competent to override d President’s proclamation. We advise pple who claim to be specialist advisers to our president to kindly advise him well b4 he issues his presidential proclamations. Even at dis moment we plead with pple who are trying to override d president to tell CinC how to circumvent or avoid d provisions of d Constitution, to be able to leapfrog d NASS in a democracy and arrive at a new structure for Nigeria. We think there is still time to do so. God bless Nigeria.

    I don’t agree with Asari Dokunbo, on what he said about the north. No region is a parasite to this nation Nigeria. We all have some thing to offer, is true that some region have more to offer then other, but that’s not to say that any region is a parasite. Our problem is the few greedy fools that feels like they are gods to the nation. On the issue of confab, I support Asari 100% on it. We don’t the have the kind of NASS that have political will power to rewrite the wrongs of the pass. For me any thing let then the confab passing through referendum I urge the youth of Nigeria, especially the south east to resist it at all cost. We can’t continue in this slavery enough is enough.

  3. Asari should first relocate his house and university in Benin republic back to the Niger delta to develop the place and the people he is fighting for rather than instigating them to struggle while he is at the same safeguarding himself and his properties in a foreign land.

    • Hummeee! while I stand to support any move to bring sanity, equal right and justice for all in Nigeria, am also of the opinion to admonish persons who may have developmental assets in far away lands, to institute same on the Nigerian soil as such is the Economic globalization theorem.
