Former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South Leader, Chief Edwin Clark has endorsed the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi as his choice candidate for president.
He made the endorsement while addressing journalists at his Asokoro residence in Abuja.
The elder statesman said that Obi is the President that can unite Nigeria 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 the South East should be allowed to produce the next President because the zone has resourced and educated people to govern the country.
“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.
