South-South political chieftain, Chief Edwin Clark, has thrown weight behind former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for president in the coming 2023 general election., saying he is “the best for Nigeria”.
Clark declared his support for Saraki when an Advocacy Council, headed by its National Chairman, Prof Iyorwuese Hagher, paid him a courtesy visit to inform him about the plan of the former Senate President to contest the 2023 presidential election.
In his remarks, Clark emphasised the need to present a credible candidate who understands the dynamics in every part of Nigeria, citing the fact that Saraki possessed all the qualities.
“We have been agitating for the presidency to be zoned to the south. However, if we fail to come up with a consensus candidate in the South, I will have no option than to support Dr Bukola Saraki,” Clark said.
