Mu’azu is misleading Pres. Jonathan – Edwin Clark attacks PDP Chairman

by Iyobose Omoregie

Ijaw nationalist, Chief Edwin Clark, says the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu Mu’azu, is misleading President Goodluck Jonathan on party-related issues.

He accused Mu’azu of a number of offences, which included his alleged imposition of a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, as the PDP governorship candidate in Adamawa State.

Clark stated that Mu’azu painted a false picture to the president, regarding the popularity of Ribadu, in his state.

Speaking while hosting members of the Northern Youth Vanguard at his residence in Abuja on Saturday, January 18, the former federal commissioner for Information, said: “Mu’azu and some people are misleading the President in the PDP. He imposed Ribadu on the people of Adamawa, saying he’s popular.”

“Two weeks ago, Ribadu came here with some people (names withheld) asking for my support. This is the same Ribadu that was arresting people indiscriminately when he was the chairman of the EFCC without following the due process. He was given a list with which to work with.”

“There is no justice. Those who parade themselves on newspapers are anti-PDP. Majority of them are working against the party and the President.”

Speaking further, Clark stated that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari was too old to be President of a country which “requires young men”, adding that the opposition is supporting a man who “wants to sleep”.

He said: “My sons and my daughters, I have gone to this very length to show you that the man called Buhari, you do not know him. You are knowing him at the age of 73. Why should they be supporting him when he wants to sleep?”

“Can the man stand firmly? I will be surprised that those who are catapulting him will not say, ‘ah, is this another game? Anyone of us can go any time but Nigeria requires young men, young governors whose hands are not soiled.”

“This is your country, we are building it for you. If you want to spoil it, spoil it. But for people like us who are waiting for boarding pass to rule the country for you, you will be in trouble.”
