2023 Presidency: Nobody Can Stop The Igbo When The Time Comes — Edwin Clark

On November 25, 2018 41 Comments

South-South leader, Chief Edwin Clark, yesterday, took a swipe at the Presidency, saying that when the time comes for the people of the South-East to produce the President of the country, nobody can stop them.

According to the Ijaw leader, giving the people of the South-East region a condition that their presidency in 2023 could only be guaranteed and achieved if they vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 was unnecessary and must be condemned in all its ramifications.

The elder statesman was reacting to a statement by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, that the South-East endorsement of Buhari’s re -election will secure their presidency in 2023.

Clark said that what was required in Nigeria at the moment and years to come was good governance.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja after he paid a condolence visit to Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State over the death of his mother, Ma Goldcoast Dickson, the elder statesman lampooned the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on the assertion that for the South-East people to have the presidency in 2023, they must vote for Buhari.

Clark said, “That is a very unusual statement. Is it a threat or an appeal? Nigerians will always vote for the candidates they believe in, candidates that will rule Nigeria without any trouble, without religious fanaticism, someone who doesn’t believe in ethnicity, somebody competent enough, healthy enough to rule Nigeria .

“This is the greatest country in Africa; by the way, the Igbo are in the South-East, they are part of this country from the First Republic. No one has put them aside; so when the time comes for the Igbo to be the President of Nigeria, nobody will dispute to it or stop them.”

Earlier, Clark, who noted that he was at the residence of the governor to sympathize with him over the death of his mother, said that Dickson’s mum will be a very happy mother after giving her a befitting burial that had been slated for January next year in Delta State, adding that the mother left behind a very dynamic and progressive son.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, had, while speaking with journalists after a meeting between Buhari and the South-East governors at the Presidential Villa on Wednesday, urged the Igbo to endorse Buhari’s re- election bid in order to secure the presidency in 2023.

Mustapha had said: “This obviously might not be most appropriate time. You remember there was a programme in the south-east where Mr. President asked me to represent him and I flew the kite by telling the south-eastern states that their quickest and easiest means to presidency is to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term”.

    “He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He who formed the eye, does He not see?(Psalms 94:9)”.

    Like this saying “The wicked does as if the LORD doesn’t see him”.. When people engage in evil activities and perpetrate all manner of mischief, they do all this thinking and believing that the LORD GOD is not seeing them. When the judge on earth pervert justice, kill the innocent, silence the poor, take bribe, free the offender but convict innocent, they think, the Judge(God) of all nations is not seeing them. When the rich oppress the poor, they think God doesn’t see them.

    When people kill for money, power, position, fame, and ritual, they think the LORD who says “Thou shall not kill” doesn’t see them. When you backbite, gossip, curse and speak evil against people, you think the LORD who planted the ear does not hear? Why not repent and forsake all your sins today?

    Where can you run on the TERRIBLE DAY of the LORD? When He will avenge all the evil the people of the world are doing now. Wait a sec! Where can you hide from the Spirit of the LORD, have you forgotten He’s omnipresent, who He’s present everywhere at the same time? Where can you hide from Him when you are doing evil, that He may not see you?

    The Bible says He looks down from heaven and the earth trembles, He touches the mountain and smoke comes out. What a great and mighty God He is! Repent, before nemesis catch up with you! Fornicators, adulterers, thieves, murderers, all who abort, internet fraudsters, gossipers, drunkard, and all who do evil thinking the LORD GOD who planted their ears and formed their eyes can’t hear or see.

    There is a day of reckoning, when you shall give account of all you are doing now. Repent! JESUS IS COMING SOON!
