In a birthday goodwill message to Clark, who turned 93 years on Monday, Nwodo said that Clark’s commitment to justice and truth in Nigeria sets him out as a humanist who desires fairness in the country.
“Since the Independence of Nigeria nearly 60 years ago, Chief Clark has remained dogged in the struggle for a just and equitable society. I admonish young leaders to learn a lot from the selfless quality in Chief Clark and eschew the self aggrandizement that is inherent in the leaders of today.
“High Chief Clark’s commitment for a better and equitable Nigeria even at an age he should be resting is unparalleled and sets him out as an outstanding leader who is desirous to bequest a greater Country to the younger generation,” Nwodo eulogised.
In wishing him more prosperous years ahead, Nwodo thanked God almighty for keeping Clark going at his age in struggle for a better Nigeria.
