former President, adding that the latter was instrumental to his

instrumental to Jonathan becoming the President” alleging that “his
aides did not manage him well because they are selfish and greedy.”

Dokubo also condemned the inclusion of the
construction of a banquet hall in the presidential villa in the 2013
budget, saying that such project had no direct link with the welfare of

constitution because this exercise can only be done by the people
themselves. This is why a sovereign national conference is important.”
said further that “the 1999 Constitution is a fraud, going by its
preamble,” noting that “the constitution needs the input of every
Nigerian before it can be acceptable.”
