No section of Nigeria should be treated as second class citizen – Edwin Clark


By Emmanuel Obisue

Elder statesman and National Leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, Chief Edwin Clark has said that it is wrong for any part of the country to be treated as second class citizens.

Chief Clark who spoke on Arise Television programme yesterday said there is no moral justification for any Nigerian to be treated as second citizens in his own country.

On the issue of where to zone the presidency come 2023, Clark said that only zoning can heal the wound that resulted from Nigeria/Biafra civil war which ended in 1960.

“My idea of zoning the Presidency to the South is well-known. No Nigerian will like to live in a country where certain people believe that they have the only right to lead.

“The All Progressives Congress, APC believes the 12 million votes by President Muhammadu Buhari might be eroded if it is zoned to the South. The PDP is also considering zoning to the North. This is unfair”, he stated.
