Why Should I Die Because Jonathan Lost Election? Clark Queries

Edwin Clark 

“Jonathan was the one who contested election, I didn’t. So, why should I die?”

These were the words of the former Nigeria Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark, who campaigned vigorously for President Goodluck Jonathan for his second term bid as President of the country under Peoples Democratic Party.

President Jonathan lost to opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, General Muhammadu Buari in the March 28 presidential election.

Clark, who spoke to airport correspondents in Abuja yesterday on his way out of the country made it clear that his destiny was not tied to Jonathan’s government.

“I am alive. Today, I won’t talk about what happened before, during and after the election. That will come another day.

“I am talking to you now because I am travelling tomorrow and some people will go into the streets and say I was carried into air ambulance.

Clark was reacting to the rumour that he collapsed when he heard that General Buhari had won the presidential election, adding that he was on his way to London and had to address newsmen before another rumour crops up.

The Ijaw National leader said he was still in shock why some people could be thinking he would die when he was not the one that contested election, saying: “I am here today to tell you that I am not dead. Or am I dead? In every election, there would be winners and losers. The same thing happened during the last presidential election.

“President Jonathan that contested election had congratulated the winner and the whole world acclaimed him for conceding defeat.” [myad]
