Former leader of Ijaw Youth Movement (IYM), Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari,  has advised Northerners to forget the Presidency in 2015, insisting that the exalted position will remain in the South or go to the Middle Belt.

Dokubo-Asari, who gave the advice at the Enugu residence of late Biafran warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, during a courtesy call on her widow, Bianca, by coalitions of organisations of Nigeria.

He regretted that Biafra, which was the brain child of Ojukwu, was not  actualised, calling for convocation of Sovereign National Conference with a view to restructuring the country.

He added that Nigeria needed true federalism.

On the activities of Boko Haram, he said it was a ploy by a cabal in the North to shift power to their region, but assured that the group would not achieve its aim.

In her response, Bianca thanked the coalitions , led by Miabiye Kuromiema, for their solidarity.
