A labour and political activist in Rivers State, Mr. James Kobah, has called on Ijaw leader and former Information Minister, Chief Edwin Clark, to leave Rivers State governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, alone, and refrain from witch-hunting him.
Kobah, who bemoaned the political travails of Governor Amaechi, accused the Ijaw leader of misleading President Goodluck Jonathan in the current political crisis in the country.
He alleged that Chief Clark did not show political wisdom when he recently called for the expulsion of Governor Amaechi from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for alleged anti-party activities.
Kobah, who addressed newsmen in Port Harcourt, said: “Chief Clark says he has a new wife at 84. He should rest at home and manage his new wife. He should rest at home and enjoy his new wife since he has nothing to offer Mr President. We are not happy over what is going on now in the state, especially when people like Chief Clark are involved in misleading Mr President. We want to ask him to leave Amaechi and Rivers State alone.
“He can continue to deceive Mr President if Mr President decides to accept his advice. There is a crisis of this magnitude in which people, governors, national and state Assembly members are pulling out of PDP and he’s still there deceiving Mr. President. When Amaechi became governor of this state, yes, most of us anticipated that he would have problems with some people because of his philosophy and ideology.”
