Edwin Clark Endorses Peter Obi
Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has earned Chief Edwin Clark’s support as his choice for the elections in February. Chief Edwin Clark is a national Ijaw leader and the convener of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF).
According to Clark, who addressed journalists at his Asokoro residence in Abuja, stated that Obi’s efforts to restructure Nigeria will bring the nation together.
As he stated that the South East should be permitted to produce the next President because the region has the resources and educated people to govern the nation, Clark claimed that one who must be the next President of the country must be educated and experienced.
“I have since received a thorough briefing on the successful conclusion of the interaction held at that occasion,” Clark said. I have noted the following observations that were made during the meeting, among other things: That PANDEF presented to the presidential candidate the expectations and demands of the peoples of the Niger Delta, including the development of infrastructure, the devolution of power, resource management, effective and inclusive participation in the oil and gas sector, among other things.
“That the vision statement presented by His Excellency Peter Obi at the event is very commendable as it relates to making Nigeria more productive, utilizing the abundant resource endowment in every part of the country; reducing waste and combating corruption; and creating jobs for our teeming youths through innovative initiatives.
That his reaffirmed commitment to reorganizing and decentralizing power will foster harmony and peaceful coexistence among the states and other parts of the nation.
That his vision for greater equity and justice in the South-South, which over the past 60 years has contributed significantly to the national economy but has been neglected with little impact on infrastructure and social development, is admirable and convincing.
“Peter Obi’s dedication to environmental justice and the cleanup of the Niger Delta’s polluted neighborhoods is highly appreciated, especially in light of how slowly even the ongoing Ogoni clean-up has progressed.
If he wins the election, it will be very comforting to know that he is committed to including capable Niger Delta residents in the national governance process.
