Edwin Clark has again endorsed the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi in the forthcoming February, 2023 general election.

 

Clark endorsed Peter Obi, saying the latter’s move to restructure the country will promote national unity.

 

 

FORMER  Federal Commissioner for Information and South South Leader, Chief Edwin Clark has endorsed the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi as his candidate for February Presidential election.

 

Clark addressed Journalists at his Asokoro Residence, Abuja said that with Obi as President, Nigeria will be become a united nation with his move to restructure the country.

 

According to Clark, one who must be the next President of the country must be educated and experienced, just as he said that South East should be allowed to produce the next President because the zone has resourced and educated people to govern the country.

 

Clark said ” I  have since been fully briefed on the successful outcome of the interaction held at that occasion. Amongst other things, I have taken note of the following observations which came out of the meeting: That PANDEF presented the expectations and demands of the peoples of the Niger Delta, comprising infrastructural development, devolution of power, resource control, effective and inclusive participation in the oil and gas sector, amongst other things, to the Presidential Candidate.

“That the vision statement shared by His Excellency Peter Obi at the occasion, as it relates to making Nigeria more productive, using the rich resource endowment in every part of the country; curbing waste and  fighting corruption; and creating jobs for our teeming youths through innovative initiatives is very commendable.

 

“That his restated commitment to restructuring and devolution of power, will promote harmony, peaceful coexistence amongst the states and constituent parts of the country.

 

“That his vision for more equity and justice as it pertains to the South-South region, which  in the past sixty years has produced much of the revenue for the national economy, but has been neglected with little impact in terms of infrastructure and social development, is convincing and commendable.

“Peter Obi’s commitment to environmental justice to the clean up of the Niger Delta polluted communities is most welcomed, given that even the ongoing Ogoni clean-up has been rather slow.

 

“His commitment to inclusion of qualified persons from the Niger Delta in the national governance process in the future government if elected into power is very reassuring.”

This is coming barely three days after the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo had publicly declared support for Peter Obi to win the 2023 presidential election.

 

Obasanjo made the declaration on Sunday in an open letter to the youths in Nigeria.

 

The letter coincides with the New Year celebration and comes eight weeks to the general polls.

 

He said though other candidates have the capacity to rule, Peter Obi is the needed needle and thread the country needs.
