Edwin Clark, an Ijaw national leader has opined that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is afraid to comment on the important issue of restructuring because of his 2023 ambitions.

Mr. Clark made his observation known in a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, November 24, 2021.

Groups and Nigerians loyal to the former Lagos State governor have started campaigning for him with the hope that he runs but Tinubu is yet to declare his intentions for the presidency.

“What several Nigerians want is the restructuring of the country in order to douse the tensions and agitations which is almost tearing the country apart today. This is the main cause of the high insecurity being experienced.

“The Tinubus who brought restructuring to the manifesto of APC have not spoken about it, because they fear that if they do, they will not be allowed to contest for the presidency of the country, come 2023,” Clark said.

He added: “We want to reiterate that we are more patriotic than those who do not believe in restructuring of Nigeria, even though we are very well pleased to shame them, because majority of other Nigerians also believe in the restructuring of the country. We, however, wish to advise those minority to follow us, the majority, as we mean well for the country.”
