Plot against Tukur targeted at Jonathan –Clark

From GODWIN TSA, Abuja

Elder statesman and Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, has said the plot to remove Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Dr. Bamanga Tukur, is an attempt against President Goodluck Jonathan.

Clark assured that no amount of intimidation, manipulation or suppression from anybody or zone can stop the President from contesting the 2015 presidential elections.

In a statement issued in Abuja, the octogenarian noted that the recent crisis in the camp of the PDP culminating into calls for Tukur’s removal is targeted at frustrating President Jonathan’s second term ambition.

His position is in tandem with that of a political group, Congress for Good Governance (CGG), which accused some governors of plotting to replace the PDP Chairman with a surrogate who would frustrate the President’s second term.

The National President of the group, Dr. Princewell Utoma Ewubere, said “some ambitious governors are holding clandestine meetings with the aim of removing the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr, Bamanga Tukur at all cost so as to replace him with a surrogate who would stop president Jonathan from contesting the 2015 presidential elections.”

The statement alleged that the said meeting took place at a highbrow hotel in Abuja, before the grand finale of the PDP peace and reconciliation tours, adding “ topmost on the agenda was the issue of controlling the party machinery, a move which four governors present at the meeting described as a major challenge towards upsetting the President.

“A prominent leader of the group and a South-South governor, who has not hidden his disdain for the President, has put spanners in the works to ensure Tukur’s removal to pave way for his surrogate to take charge of affairs at the Wadata Plaza of the party.

Justifying why Jonathan’s candidature for 2015 cannot be negotiated, Clark said: “I wonder what makes the issue of President Jonathan contesting the 2015 Presidency a mere speculation, according to you. The 1999 Constitution provides for two tenures of four years each after two democratically-conducted elections.

“The practice in democratic presidential system of government is that an incumbent president remains the sole candidate of a political party at the party’s convention, if he or she is willing to contest for a second term in office, the Ijaw national leader said.

    Chief Edwin Chiagbodo Clarke, you are a useless ijaw leader without bearing, do you think we are running ijaw administration in this country ? are you the one to decide for GEJ to run for second term in office ? stop running your mouth for GEJ, simply because you are looking for favour, you are just an ijaw leader, but you are nothing in this country.

  2. Alhaji Dan,why are u condemning clark because he made his personal opinion ? remember north has been in power for over 30yrs plus but those leader cannot develop any where in north rather they choose to sponsoring B/H becos they are not siphoing their money for their selfishness.

    well i pity people like u who do not know his left and right rather u chooses to condemn others instead of u northerners to thinks ur leaders who do not develop any where in norther rather their immediate families sending USA and Britain to study but telling u people against western educations but their children are there schooling.

  3. Visitor Dan Azumi Gana, you are very stupid to insult an elder because he said the truth. Take this into your block head, after the 2015 general election GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN remains the president of this country, not all your bombs, monkey kwankwaso, babaginda m niger state number one monkey and of you that sposors boko haram can never stop this.

  4. Congratulations sultan. congratulations bo haram. Can you see, Jonathan has resigned the presidency? And from now on, let the sultan handpick the presidents of Nigeria from amongst his hausa-fulani moslems. Nigerians are scared of your bombings. Mission accomplished.

  5. Take it, or leave it. No amount of bombings will stop Jonathan from continueing as president come 2015. O’ sultan, and your Northern Daydreamers -Wake up! Or rather, come to Aba let’s teach you how to make the latest edition of ogbunigwe. Its cheap, and easy to transport. You dont have to spend so much money just to do your bombings. But note: For these boko haram bombings, its going to take 22 years for the presidency to come back to hausa-fulani Loosers.

  6. The issue here is not about hausa/fulani leadership. The question all conscientious lovers of the country should ponder is whether the PDP leadership of the country for close to thirteen years now has impacted positively on the lives of average Nigerians. If the answer is no, then it means that the party in power, not GEJ, lacks what it takes to rule Nigeria, and should be shown the way out for alternatives. This is the beauty of democracy. As for Dr. Clark, he has been playing the ethnocentric jingoist since the coming of GEJ. His abrasive and almost megalomaniac utternaces are not doing GEJ any good. As an elder statesman, his speeches ought to be spiced up with discretion and wisdom so that no one finds any excuse to insult him.

    President Goodluck Jonathan has proved himself to be a genius who has risen in response to societal needs. whether GEJ is a doer of good or the contriver of evils, somebody must emerge. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has RISEN.
