Ijaw elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, has come out to say that neither he nor governor of Delta state, Emmanuel Uduaghan has endorsed any gubernatorial aspirant, warning those falsely campaigning with their names to desist henceforth.

Clark made the remark while speaking to Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege, a governorship aspirant who had come to pay him a consultative visit in his country home in Kagbodo.

We all have a stake in the state, adding the he (Chief Clark) alone could not make anybody the governor. ” Let me tell you, I cannot endorse you, but I can give you my blessing, the governor alone cannot do it.”

Vangurad reports:

“Recently, I sat down with Dr. Uduaghan and I told him that he alone, me alone can make the governor of Delta State and I told him that those who are using our names should stop same. This state is not meant for rascals or people who never went to school and want to be governor, it will not be allowed.

“I have said that I do not want to make any statement about the governorship position until Mr. President declares his intension to contest for a second term. So, if anybody comes to tell you that I Chief Clark had held his hand to meet Mr. President, that is a lie.

“We all have a stake, when you come to me like this, I’m an old man, I will give you my blessings and tell you go and fight, meaning go and fight in the primaries.
“I have said it, when you are 70 years and above, you are at you departure lodge waiting for your boarding pass. That was what I told them at the national conference when they said Clark you are too old; I stood up and I told them I’m 87 years.

“I waited but God refused to give me my boarding pass, and they said, ‘why,’ I said because God told me, ‘you are one of those that caused the problems in Nigeria and see that they are resolved before you come to me for your boarding pass.
