N’Delta, Clark Can’t Be Coerced To Vote Buhari – Ijaw Group


Ijaw Peoples Development Initiative, IPDI, yesterday said the people of Niger-Delta region and South-South leader, Chief Edwin Clark would not accept intimidation and blackmail by the Federal Government and its security agents to support the second-term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Spokesperson of the group, Ezekiel Daniel, in a statement, asserted: “We wish to state unequivocally that the invasion of the Abuja residence of Niger Delta leader, Senator Edwin Clark by a police team to cow him and people of Niger Delta with false information to support President Muhammadu Buhari second term bid is inimical, criminal, barbaric and poorly crafted.”
“The invasion of Pa Clark’s residence is politically motivated. We foresee a plot to arrest and embarrass Pa Clark to frighten him to support Buhari re-election, such is an act of witch-hunt, intimidation and defamatory. “As a people, we cannot fold our hands and watch our father, Pa Clark being humiliated by some errand boys. We make bold to state that President Buhari and Inspector General of Police, IGP should stop forcing people to support Buhari’s re-election bid “What happened is also an attempt to send the elder statesman to early grave, and we will hold Buhari and IGP responsible if any bad thing happens to our father, Pa Clark. It is our appeal that Buhari and his errand boys should stop blackmailing Pa Clark.
“He is not involved in any stockpiling of ammunition except the current government is suffering from dementia we will not accept such embarrassment of the national leader of South-South anymore.
