Similarly, I never solicited for appointments or special placements for any of my children or relations in any government or private concern on account of my relationship with President Jonathan.

Elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, seems to be mending fences, judging from his recent comments about former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to Vanguard Newspapers, Chief Clark blamed the media for sensationalising his comments and quoting him out of context.

 He also added that he is very proud of the former President, and his achievements, while in office.

Clark also debunked comments about him, trying to seek for favour from President Buhari.

He said “With all modesty, I am at this age contented. I state publicly therefore, that I never sought nor obtained any contract, oil block, oil lifting allocation or financial gratification from the ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs, during his years of administration.

“Similarly, I never solicited for appointments or special placements for any of my children or relations in any government or private concern on account of my relationship with President Jonathan.

“It is, therefore, ludicrous and totally ill-motived for these wicked and mischievous persons to sell to the public that my decision portends a plan to seek any special favours from President Muhammadu Buhari and his government, or to protect those gains which I acquired from Jonathan’s government, which never existed."

Chief Clark was scolded by Reuben Abati for saying that Jonathan lacked the political will to fight corruption.
