Niger Delta chieftain, Edwin Clark has accused former presidential aide, Reuben Abati of sabotaging the government of former President, Goodluck Jonathan by failing to promote his achievements.

Abati had accused Clark of turning his back on Jonathan after he said that the former president didn’t have the political will to fight corruption.

Clark made the comments in an email to Premium Times. It reads in part:

“Dr. Reuben Abati has risen to the defence of his last employer too late. He owes the former President apologies for his (Reuben Abati) failure to perform while in office. I should not be used as a scapegoat. I love Goodluck Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan loves me.”

“My advice that a publicity committee made up of eminent journalists be put in place in Aso Rock and that media proprietors and senior journalists should be invited to Aso Rock were jettisoned by Abati because of what I suppose is his covetousness, particularly when many journalists and media houses always complained to me that he was not carrying them along.”

 “I do not recall any favourable remark made by Abati all those years when he was the chairman of the Editorial Board [of the Guardian] and syndicated columnist about the former president, His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan.”

“I do not know the background of Dr. Abati but for him to lie and devilishly imagine that I should have remained a PDP card carrying member if President Jonathan had won the election is satanic.”

Clark also said that he still considered Jonathan as his son despite Abati’s assumption that he had disowned the former president.
