Oct 8, 2015 – Ijaw Leader Edwin Clark: I Left PDP Bcos Jonathan Is Too Weak To Fight Corruption

Ex- Federal Commissioner of Information, Chief Edwin Clark, has hailed the anti-corruption crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari and knocked former President Goodluck Jonathan for lacking the political will to fight graft.

Clark, who said it was wrong for anyone to accuse President Buhari of fighting a selective war in his drive to return sanity into the polity, also declared that he had formally left the Peoples Democratic Party.
Clark called on Nigerians not to distract the President from achieving his goal, just as he appealed to the

President to remain focused in his determination to rid the country of corruption.
The Ijaw leader spoke in Abuja on Wednesday when a group, Think Nigeria First Initiative, paid him a courtesy call in his Abuja residence.

He said:

“Jonathan didn’t have the political will to fight corruption. He’s a gentleman. Drivers of yesterday are living in palatial buildings now under his government.
“In advanced countries, when you are living above your means, people query you. That’s not so in Nigeria. Former governors, lawmakers are now asking for immunity.”

Clark, who was a staunch supporter of former President Jonathan, however, said he had quit the PDP. But he said he would not join the governing party, the All Progressives Congress.

He said, “I no longer belong to the PDP. I won’t go to the APC either, but I will continue to talk as an elder statesman and leader of this country. I have left politics.

“If anyone comes to me to say he’s running for any elective position in the PDP or the APC, I won’t support you. I’m not a member of the PDP anymore.”

Some of us were worried when Jonathan conceded defeat. We were worried. If a man who contested election conceded defeat, who are you to say no?

“Elections had been held, winners had emerged and losers had agreed, what next? Buhari is now my President and the President of Nigeria.
“We should all try and support him, particularly in his determination to eradicate corruption in Nigeria. For eight years Obasanjo legalised corruption.

“Yet, he’s the one talking about corruption today. Nobody should distract Buhari from fighting corruption. People should stop talking about sectional or selective justice.”

Clark said those who ruled the country before Buhari, like the late President Umaru Yar’Adua and Jonathan didn’t have the political will to fight corruption.

  3. Chelf Edwin Clark is one of those political criminal that misled and took advantage President Jonathan clueless, low IQ,and bad judgment. This was the same man who got political appointment under OBJ administration and later condemned and banished Baba Iyawo on national newspaper and television in defense of President Jonathan administration . It is the peak of immorality and so shameful to see or hear a man of almost 80 years banishing Jonathan publicy for not being a strong leader against corruption that he was fully part of. Jonathan uasually refered to this idiot, old fool and agbaya as his own father. Wonder shall never end, I remembered when Edwin Clark was traveling everywhere with Jonathan during the election reason campaigning for him to get reelected against PMB. Now the agbaya old fool claimed that he has left PDP because there is no more goodies or national cake to share as a PDP members anymore . The fact is that Edwin Clark, FFK, Anyum Pius Anyum, some criminal pastors, and many political crooks misled president Jonathan because of his lack of experience, low mentality,and clueless about crucial national issues. These fools are the reason why Nigeria is so backward, underdeveloped, in choas and ridicule around the world. There is nothing for APC members talkless of PDP members under President Buhari. These Nigerian politicians are nothing but shameless, disgraceful and criminal animals in human flesh. They will say or do anything dishonest or dishonor to get back to corridor of power to continue their criminal looting of national treasure. But thank God for PMB for his principles and war against corruption.

  5. Baba Edwin Clark, you are too old to play the political harlot. I am not surprised by your recent ‘chameleonic’ comments because I’ve always been wary of the motives of your political activities and associations.
    You said that Jonathan didn’t have the political will to fight corruption because he is a gentleman. Tell me, is lack of political will to do what is right an attribute of gentlemen?
    You are just a self-styled elder statesman.
