Why Tinubu Is Afraid To Talk About Restructuring – EK Clark



Elder statesman and former federal commissioner for information, Chief Edwin Clark, has accused the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of being afraid to speak on restructuring despite his past attachment to the issue because of his presumed 2023 presidential aspiration.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, on Wednesday, November 24, Clark accused the national leadership of the APC of betraying their claims on restructuring. Noting that the committee constituted a committee headed by Mallam Nasir El-Rufai on the issue, he said that the party had decided to play the ostrich by looking the other way despite the submission of the report years ago.

Warning that the present agitations by ethnic groups such as Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB would be a child play in the near future if the country is not restructured, he said:

“What several Nigerians want is actually the restructuring of the country in order to douse the tensions and agitations which is almost tearing the country apart today, and is the main cause of the high insecurity being experienced.”

“Nigerians are ready to accept the implementation of the 2014 National Conference, or the APC’s El-Rufai Committee Report, any of which will no doubt satisfy the generality of the Nigerian people.

Noting that Tinubu was afraid to talk about restructuring because of his 2023 aspiration, Clark said:

“The Tinubus who brought restructuring to the manifesto of APC have not spoken because they fear that if they do, they will not be allowed to contest for the presidency of the country, come 2023.

“We want to reiterate that we are more patriotic than those who do not believe in restructuring of Nigeria, even though we are very well pleased to shame them, because majority of other Nigerians also believe in the restructuring of the country. We, however, wish to advise those minority to follow us, the majority, as we mean well for the country.”
