The Leaders led by former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South leader, Chief Edwin Clark are questioning him on his plans for Nigeria ahead of 2019 Presidential election.

The former Jigawa State Governor appeared before the forum on Monday at the Asokoro residence of Clark in Abuja to take questions, particularly on the restructuring of the country which the forum is pushing for, and his plans to revive the economy against the backdrop of exponential growth in population.

Before the question and answer session, Chief Clark told him that the forum will not endorse any aspirant until the aspirant had given all of them, including the President Muhammadu Buhari, the opportunity to be heard.

Four aspirants have so far appeared before the forum at the Asokoro, Abuja residence of the Chief Clark.

They are former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar; former Sokoto state governor, Attahiru Bafarawa; Sina Fagbenro of KOWA Party and Lamido.
