An Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark has alleged that the chair­man of the Independent National Electoral Com­mission, (INEC), Pro­fessor Attahiru Jega is working for the opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC) in next month presidential elec­tions.

Hosting some PDP campaign groups, Clark alleged that the INEC chairman was making frantic efforts to ensure that the incumbent President and PDP presiden­tial candidate, Dr Goodluck Jonathan did not win the election.

The Ijaw leader further alleged that Professor Jega was desperate to create 30,000 polling units with phantom voting population, “to ensure that Jonathan doesn’t come back.

“It is disgraceful that Jega whom we thought was an upright man has allowed ethnicity and religion to take control of him.”

Speaking on the sustained criticism of the President Jonathan administration by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, Chief Clark called on the leadership of the PDP to expel the former president from the party. He also ac­cused Chief Obasanjo of being economical with the truth over the

He also alleged that investigative report on Pe­troleum Trust Fund, (PTF) indicted the former chairman of the agency and APC presiden­tial candidate, General Mu­hammadu Buhari of squan­dering N25billion.

Clark said, “What is wrong with PDP? That man (Obasanjo) should not be al­lowed to be in the party. You beg him all the time, he has made up his mind.

“He gathered APC wom­en, led by Alaba Lawson and Folashade Tinubu-Ojo at a meeting where he accused President Jonathan of squandering for­eign reserves.

“You dissolved his committee (PTF), set up an inquiry and the report indicted him that he could not account for N25billion, yet you are now saying that man wasn’t corrupt!

“Because Obasanjo is cor­rupt, he doesn’t know what the definition of corruption is. There is big trouble in this country when corrupt people call others corrupt. If you say Jonathan is corrupt, where is the evi­dence?

“Obasanjo and Buhari are the same and they are now involved in marriage of con­venience just to remove Jon­athan. “People whose hands are soiled are accusing Jona­than of corruption. Nigeria belongs to all of us and God will decide who will rule Nigeria,” Clark said.
