No region has better politician than Igbo region – Edwin Clark

No region has better politician than Igbo region – Edwin Clark

Elder statesman and Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark has said among all the regions in Nigeria, none has better politicians than the Igbo region.

Clark who turned 92 in 2019 has seen all of Nigeria’s politics having served under former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, as Federal Commissioner for Information. He made the assertion in a recent chat media chat where he said there is no politician in Nigeria better than Igbo the politician.

Prodded for his view on the forthcoming 2023 presidential election he said; “some argued that the Igbo have not played politics well to deserve it. How do they want them to play it? Have they not been participating in all the elections? Do they not have governors elected in the East? Do they not have National Assembly members elected in the East? Is it because they refused to vote for a particular party?”

 “What are they talking about? How does that affect them? During the 2019 campaign, we heard Mr. Babatunde Fashola and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo saying that if the South-West voted for Buhari en-masse, the presidency would come to them in 2023.

“The Secretary to the Federal Government went to the South-East to say the same thing. Labour Minister Chris Ngige also said same thing to south-easterners. These were mere campaign gimmicks. Let us face reality; most of them who are talking about it were not born when Nigeria got independence and they didn’t know how Nigeria developed.

“I am now 92. I saw Nigeria in the First Republic and the role the Igbo played. There is no politician better than the Igbo politician. The Sardauna of Sokoto and Premier of the Northern Nigeria, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello, played politics together with his Igbo counterparts.

“The Mbadiwes and Aja Nwachukwus were easterners who played leading roles in the development of this country. What of Nnamdi Azikiwe? Nigeria has qualified people from every region, every state. To say they have not played politics well is unacceptable. Is it because they fought the civil war they believed in?”
