Clark Demands Setting Of   Disciplinary Committee To Probe Wike’s Anti-party Activities


By; AMOS TAUNA, Kaduna 

Former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South Leader,  Chief Edwin Clark has called for the setting up of a disciplinary committee that will be saddled with the responsibility of probing the anti-party activities of former Governor of Rivers State and others whose roles led to the failure of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections.

In a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, he observed that the former governor of Rivers and presently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Nyesom Wike is the greatest enemy of the  PDP,  manipulating it, with an intent of destroying it.

According to him, his (Wike) anti party activities must be decisively dealt with, by setting up a strong disciplinary committee made up a strong people with resilience to resist pecuniary gains.

The elder statesman also called for the immediate dissolution of the present National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP, describing it as their anti-party activities.

Clark’s statement is titled, “As the National Working Committee, (NEC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) meets: A Poser- PDP: To be or not to be?”

He said that after the dissolution of the NWC, an Acting National Chairman should be appointed in accordance with the Constitution of the party, saying that there was a precedence during the tenure of Prince Uche Secondus, who was still in court, when the party appointed another Acting National Chairman.

The Leader of Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum (SMBLF), advised the party to immediately revisit the on-line registration of its members as it was initiated by the then National Chairman, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, to save the party from depending on individuals, lamenting that some overzealous members of the party have hijacked it for their selfish gains.

Clark believes that PDP would collapse as the second principal party in the country today if the former Vice President and the 2023 Presidential candidate,  Atiku Abubakar is made the candidate for 2027 elections. 

Clark said, “I know that many people who read this article will say to themselves that they thought Chief Edwin Clark said he has retired from active and partisan politics. Yes, I said I have resigned from partisan and active politics. But it was one of the famous philosophers Aristotle, who said “Man is by nature a political animal.”  

He went on to narrate that because no human can flourish on their own, there is a natural tendency of man to partner with their fellow men.

He noted that one of the partnerships is that relating to polis, which is the Greek word for community; from where is derived political partnership, stressing that for as long as Almighty God keeps him alive, both physically and mentally, he will continue to speak on governance and political matters, especially when it is tending to adversely affect the nation.
