Controversial Ijaw leader, E.K. Clark, has hailed the corruption fight of President Muhammadu Buhari and knocked former President Goodluck Jonathan for lacking the political will to fight graft.
Clark, who said it was wrong for anyone to accuse President Buhari of fighting a selective war in his drive to return sanity into the polity, also declared that he had formally left the PDP.
His words: “Jonathan didn’t have the political will to fight corruption. He’s a gentleman. Drivers of yesterday are living in palatial buildings now under his government.
Clark called on all Nigerians not to distract the President from achieving his goal, just as he appealed to the President to remain focused in his determination to rid the country of corruption.
He spoke in Abuja on Wednesday when a group, Think Nigeria First Initiative, paid him a courtesy call.
Clark, who was a staunch supporter of former President Jonathan, said, “I no longer belong to the PDP. I won’t go to the APC either, but I will continue to talk as an elder statesman and leader of this country. I have left politics.
“If anyone comes to me to say he’s running for any elective position in the PDP or the APC, I won’t support you. I’m not a member of the PDP anymore.”
It is suspected that Clark quit PDP because of the defeat suffered by Jonathan in the hands of Buhari.
