Former Federal Commissioner of Information in Nigeria, Edwin Clark, today stated that General Muhammadu Buhari cannot win the 2015 election if he contests.
“People know General Buhari, Buhari is a tribalist, when he was campaigning, he did not even go to the South. Buhari is a dictator, and he can never win.”
He said this during an interview with SaharaTV, an online TV based in New York.
“President Jonathan is very qualified in all ways, academically he is qualified; he is also a humble man, so he’s very qualified. I don’t support anyone who says otherwise!”
Clark affirmed his support for President Goodluck Jonathan by highlighting some of the things he has achieved in his one year of office, which was celebrated last week.
“He has been able to improve power generation in Nigeria, although a lot of people still like to have their own power generator. President Jonathan has come up with a plan for a committee to look into the power situation, and I’m sure soon it will improve.
Regarding Boko Haram issue, the president has got a plan. Even though some people are dying in Borno area, there is relatively calmness across Nigeria. He has made arrangement to negotiate with them and am sure it will be taken care of.
The president has constructed a lot of roads. Today you can drive from Lagos to Benin city. A lot of other roads have also been improved!” he said.
