Chief Clark’s recommendation stems from his belief that the inclusion of these states in the NDDC was primarily a matter of convenience, rather than an accurate reflection of the oil-producing regions. He characterized this inclusion as a “political aberration.”

This call by Chief Edwin Clark raises questions about the original intention behind the inclusion of these states in the NDDC and the necessity of revisiting the legislation to ensure a more accurate allocation of resources and representation for the region’s oil-producing states.
