2023: Clark Endorses Bobby Ukadike From Imo As Candidate For President…’It’s Turn Of Southeast’, He Insists

In his insistence that a Southeasterner should be elected President of Nigeria in 2023, foremost elder statesman and leader of the Pan Niger Delta Front (PANDEF), Chief Edwin Clark, has endorsed Bobby Ukadike from Imo State, for the Aso Rock job.

At an event that took place in Abuja on Sunday February 13, 2022, Chief Clark described the presidential hopeful as a bridge between the older and younger generation, saying “Ukadike is a nexus between the older and younger generation whose capacity to lead the nation is unequalled given his deep knowledge of socio-economic, political, cultural and religious understanding.”

Explaining the place of a unifier to help heal the country’s multiple challenges, the elder statesman said “that the aspirant is one among others yet to be seen who is committed to uniting the nation as it would be easier for Ukadike to leverage on his contacts across the six geopolitical zones into a full fledged bond of unity to drive the Nigeria to stardom among the committee of nations.”

The outspoken Niger Delta leader declared “that it was not only the turn of Southeast to produce presidency, but it speaks of Justice, fairness, and equity for the Southeast to produce presidency.

“I also call on political leaders and traditional rulers across the six geopolitical zones to rally round you as the project has started.”

Earlier in his address, the presidential hopeful, Chief Bobby Tochukwu Ezra Ukadike said, he threw his hat into the ring as a result of the passion he has for the country, adding that under his presidency, Nigeria will be more united than before.

He maintained that “the nation has the potentials to be one of the best country in the world which unfortunately has not yet been tapped, adding that he will roll out “class policy”, to achieve Nigeria’s greatness in four years.

The “class policy”, he explained, is a twofold policy that governs the rich; the elite and the poor with all categories of citizens being driven by the policies that tend to reduce corruption to the barest minimum.

His word, “And the youth is a critical mass that must quickly be converted into a productive society before they become one singular huge challenge to the nation, saying that the world over, youths are not left idly, in the manner it is in Nigeria, hence, he would tailor a special programme that harnesses the youngsters in the country.”
