Clark charges Amaechi on waterfront demolition

By Emma Amaize

WARRI – IJAW leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has called on the Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi, to be cautious over his position on the demolition of the Waterfront in Port-Harcourt so as not to jeopardize the post-amnesty programme in the state.

Chief Clark, who spoke on phone with Vanguard, said a good number of the ex-militants who had accepted amnesty and surrendered their arms, have their homes at the Waterfront in Port-Harcourt.

He said the way the governor was going about the demolition has given a wrong impression that he was targeting some persons.

He urged the governor to critically examine the matter and adopt a friendlier attitude as well as provide alternatives for the victims to avoid causing fresh crisis in the state.

Clark restated his intention to bring Governor Amaechi and Ateke Tom together in no distant time to keep warn the frosty relationship between them and expedite development in the state.
