Dokubo expressed deep frustration over the persistent neglect and opposition faced by the South-South region, particularly highlighting the long-overdue coastal road project.

He pointed out the economic benefits of such a road, noting that neighboring countries such as Benin Republic, Togo, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire have long enjoyed the advantages of coastal roads, while Nigeria has deliberately neglected its own coastal infrastructure.

“Let me tell you people, you cannot overrun South-South; you cannot subjugate us; if you try, we’ll overrun you. You already know that we are capable of overrunning you,” Dokubo stated emphatically. “Why this hate? My people will say, it’s not everybody that you will reply when they say something; these are very fundamental issues.”

He continued to stress the importance of the coastal road project for the South-South region, emphasizing the losses Nigeria has incurred by not having a coastal road. “The South-South needs this road, and it’s an all-important road, and Nigeria has been losing a lot for not having a road on a coast that Benin Republic, like Togo, like Ghana, like Côte d’Ivoire, like Sierra Leone, et cetera, they travel along the coast, Nigeria is the only exception. And it was deliberate,” he asserted.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
