This gets more interesting. After former head of state, General Ibrahim Babangida deployed colourful words against “self-acclaimed elder statesman” and Niger-Delta leader over accusations that he (Babangida) is behind Boko Haram, Chief Clark – no shrinking violet himself – has returned fire.
Speaking yesterday, Clark challenged the former general to a public senility test.

Clark, who was reacting to Babangida’s description of the Ijaw leader as senile, said the test would determine the reasoning ability of both of them, Punch is reporting.
Babangida, who was reacting to some recent comments made by Clark, had said the Ijaw leader had lost focus and had become senseless.
Clark had attacked Babangida at a public lecture, where he accused the former military leader of having a hand in the Boko Haram insurgency.
However, his declaration was contained in a statement read at a press conference in Abuja by his lawyer, Mr. Kayode Ajulo.
Clark said both of them should sit at a public debate, without the assistance of aides, to debate issues so that Nigerians could determine whether Clark or Babangida was suffering from senility.
We would like ring-side seats.
