Awo instrumental to development of western states - Clark

Nigerian Tribune, Thursday, November 7, 2013

FOREMOST Ijaw leader and politician, Chief Edwin Clark, has said that Chief Obafemi Awolowo was instrumental to the rapid development of the Western states and the Yoruba nation as a whole.  Clark stated this in Abuja during the Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly (SNPA) meeting held to articulate the position of the assembly in the forthcoming national conference.
SNPA is made up of leaders of thought from the South-East, South-West and the South-South geopolitical zones.
Clark further stated that the agitation for national conference was not new, saying that the call had been on long before now especially from the Yorubas.

According to him, " the demand for national conference did not start during the Jonathan government, it is an age-long demand particularly by Western Nigeria.
"But no government had the courage to listen to Nigerians particularly when they heard sovereign, they thought it was a move to overthrow their government.
"We should commend the then three regional leaders, who fought for the nation's independence, particularly Awolowo who brought great development to the Western region, that is why they are the most educated and enlightened."

Speaking further on the need for the dialogue, the elder statesman noted that, "Nigeria belongs to all of us. This country was made one by our colonial masters and they didn't say either north or south should be superior or inferior to the other. There is no country in the world where some people are second class and others are first class citizens so we must sit down and discuss the basis of our unity in this country."

In his speech, the Coordinator of the Assembly, Bishop Bolanle Gbonigi, stressed that the previous national conferences in the country failed to address the country's numerous problems because they were foisted on the people.

The retired Bishop, however, expressed confidence that the proposed national conference will address the friction in the polity.
He hinged his optimism on the current moves by the Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue which is going round the country to get inputs from the people on what modalities to follow.
This, according to Gbonigi, is a sign that the conference will be one by the people and for the people.

According to him, " people have been saying that we have had a number of conferences but those could hardly be called real national conferences when we consider how prepared they were. The preparations were shoddy and poor, for instance the one we had in 2005.

"Thank God for what has been done so far, the advisory committee has gone round the country listening to the people, recommending when they want the conference to be held, the content of the discussion and what to do with the final outcome of the discussion.

"That is very encouraging, it shows that the president wants to listen and hear from the people so that it will be a conference of the people, not one that is foisted on them, but one that has been decided by the people and so the people can say that it is our conference.

"We decided to hold this in our own way according to our own plans. We need to know one another; we need to understand one another and then we need to respect one another. We should know and respect each other's culture."

" I should love you and you should love me, mutual love, mutual knowledge, mutual understanding, mutual respect, mutual love and it is when we have done this peaceful that we can have mutual cooperation, effective mutual cooperation."

Best regards,


Knowledge Is Power – Seek For It
