The South-West Consultative Forum has asked a former Federal Commissioner of Information and Ijaw National Leader, Chief Edwin Clark, to stop what it described as his ill advice for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The forum said Clark’s call on President Buhari to urgently appoint a chairman for the Presidential Amnesty Programme was “laughable, senseless and irresponsible from a former minister”.
In a statement signed on Friday in Lagos by its president, Mr. Osinowo Ibrahim, the forum asked the Ijaw leader to shelve his advice for Buhari, saying that “it was his bad advice that misled former President Goodluck Jonathan while in office”.
The statement read, “This is to remind Chief Edwin Clark that the way he has misled former President Goodluck Jonathan and the former Governor of Delta State, Mr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, with selfish advice on governance will not be tolerated this time around”.
Ibrahim said but for Clark’s bad advice that caused bad blood between Jonathan and his political benefactor, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the relationship between the two leaders would have remained cordial till today.
He, however, said Clark and a former Niger Delta militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, had also been making some treasonable statements by threatening to mobilise the Niger Delta youths against the government in case Buhari refuses to take care of the interest of the South-South in his government.
