Chief Edwin Clark
Chief Edwin Clark, the Leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was biased and the worst leader Nigeria has ever had.
Clark who accused Buhari of failing to see the entire country as his constituency, also claimed that he marginalised and humiliated the people of the Niger Delta.
He also claimed that Buhari violated a vow he made to Nigerians during his inauguration in 2015 where he pledged to be fair to all parts of the country.
“Having just a few minutes ago swore on a holy book, I intend to keep my hope and same as President to all Nigerians. I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.
“In the past 8years, President Muhammadu Buhari has demonstrated in most cases that he did not belong to the whole country but to a group; his tribe and religion, which is contrary to what he said in his inaugural speech that he belong to everybody.
“For instance, he appointed fourteen out of seventeen security Chiefs from one section of the country. So, the declaration that “he belongs to everybody and nobody”, was a sham. I make bold to say that the reverse has been the case, “he belongs to some people”, but not the entire Nigeria.
“Even in simple matters like extending the good wishes of the government to notable personalities in the country on their birthdays or other landmark attainments, the Muhammadu Buhari administration was selective and biased in who it chooses to recognise or consider worthy of goodwill messages.”
