North East Development Commission not your idea, Edwin Clark tells Buhari
The idea of the North East Development Commission was never that of President Muhammadu Buhari, Chief Edwin Clark has said.
Clark was reacting to the comment attributed to President Buhari that the North East commission was his compensation to the region’s massive electoral support in the just concluded February 2019 presidential election.
But the elder statesman said that the National conference and the 8th National Assembly should take the credit for the establishment of the North East Commission.
He, therefore, noted that it was wrong for the president to tie development programme to political patronage.
He warned that if development is tied to political patronage then the country is doomed.
