A prominent Niger-Delta Chief and former Federal Commissioner of Information, Chief Edwin Clark, who was a staunch proponent of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that President Buhari is fit to lead Nigeria.
The Niger-Delta leader says President Buhari is being capable of leading the country and as such, should be supported by all Nigerians.
Clark spoke at his Abuja residence on Wednesday when he received a group, known as Probity Ambassadors Organisation of Nigeria.
“I have congratulated President Buhari and today, he is our President. He’s not the President of a section of the country. Buhari is fit for the job and he’s capable of leading us. We will support him.”
“Campaigns are over and a winner has emerged. We must come together after the election and give our support to the President. The loser of the election, who had all the powers to do and undo, came out to congratulate the President.”
“That action of the former President is the best thing that has happened in this country.”
Speaking further, he praised Jonathan for taking the action of congratulating President Buhari because of his love for the country.
“You can only be the President of the country when it is intact. All of us must join hands together to support President Buhari.”
Clark also urged those who may disagree with the President to hold on till 2019, when elections would be held again.
“This is when there will be another opportunity for election. Then Nigerians would determine if the President has done well or not. Democracy has come to stay in the country.”
