POLITICAL NOTES

Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari wrote to former President Olusegun Obasanjo on January 2, purporting to be replying the ex-president’s open letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, incidentally dated December 2 last year. But Asari missed the point. His focus, unfortunately, was the person of Obasanjo and not the message of the former president.

If there were any points Asari proved in his letter, they were the very ones made by Obasanjo against Jonathan, whom the Kalabari-born activist had set out to defend. The ex-leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force is neither an aide of Jonathan nor his information minister. Asari is in no position to reply the president’s letter.

Jonathan should learn to caution persons in the corridors of power and supposed political friends whose utterances and actions can only serve to diminish his office and isolate him within the country’s political class.
