You’re a trouble maker, Clark writes OBJ

Erstwhile Federal Minister of Information and Ijaw leader has written a blistering open letter to former President Olusegun Obasanjo describing him as an unrepentant trouble maker and hypocrite guilty of many of the things he recently accused President Goodluck Jonathan of.

In the ten page letter to Obasanjo, Chief Clark drew reference from the time of their common service in the Yakubu Gowon government and Obasanjo’s relationship with all former heads of state that succeeded him to describe the former president as one who is determined to shape Nigeria according to his own whims.

Clark traced Obasanjo’s opposition to Jonathan as a result of frustration arising from his failure to manipulate the president on issues just as he defended the president on his linkages with his Ijaw home base saying that the president has unlike his predecessors not given preferences to his people.

Clark wrote:

My Dear Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,

This indeed is a season of open letters, the session of which you heralded with a contemptuous one to His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Your eldest daughter and a former Senator. Dr. lyabo Obasanjo, feeling uncomfortable with your antics quickly fired a response to your now infamous letter that has gone viral and continue to generate negative national discourse.
