Former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Patrick Obahiagbon, has described as ‘’heretic revisionism’’ the recent depiction of former President Goodluck Jonathan by elder-statesman, Dr. Edwin Clark, as weak.


Obahiagbon, presently the Chief of Staff to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State in a statement made available to Saturday Vanguard said:

“I read with smug satiation and righteous indignation the abjuration of Chief Edwin Clark to the effect that “Jonathan didn’t have the political will power to fight corruption…..Drivers of yesterday are living in palatial buildings now under his government”.

“I would expect that this animadversion from Papa Clark would put an irrefragable quietus to all Jonathanian political jingoists still spewing and yarning Goebbelian sputum in support of former President Jonathan. This is because if there exists anybody who should have intimate knowledge of the concentric layers of malversation that characterized the failed Jonathan administration, it would be Papa Clark, the self proclaimed father of Jonathan. But has Papa Clark said anything new? The answer is a resounding NO and that was why Nigerians voted for President Buhari in their gargantuan numbers. Am happy that President

Buhari is already discharging his historical duties to our admiration.

“But that it took the eschewable fall of Jonathan for Papa Clark to peregrinate the road of the biblical Damascus and the scales thus falling off the eyes of Jonathan’s political father is not only execrable but demonstrates a putrid and rancid narration of the story of Nigeria’s political class as a Damnosa Hereditas.”
