2023 Presidency: Edwin Clark Endorses Peter Obi

Former Federal Commissioner of Information, Edwin Clark, has endorsed Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi in the upcoming election.

Mr Clark is regarded as a leader and a powerful voice in South-South Nigeria.

He told reporters at his Abuja residence on Tuesday that if Obi wins the presidential election, he would unite the country with his move to restructure it.

Mr Clark stated that the people of the Niger Delta want to see a Nigeria with true federalism, particularly in the areas of power devolution and resource control, and that PANDEF has presented this aspiration to Mr Obi.

He said: “That the vision statement shared by 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 60 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,” he said.

“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.”
