A former Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark, has said it is very wrong for anyone to think that he would die because President Goodluck Jonathan lost the March 28 presidential election.
Punch reports that Clark, who was one of the strong supporters of Jonathan, said this while addressing journalists yesterday in Abuja. The former federal commissioner said that when the results of the presidential election came out, there were rumors that he fainted due to the defeat experienced by Jonathan at the polls.
Clark, who said he was travelling to London on Friday night, said he decided to speak with journalists before the rumour mongers would go to the market again and say that he had been flown abroad in air ambulance.
The however wondered why some people could be thinking he would die or collapse when he was not the one that contested election. He said even the President that stood for the election had conceded defeat and congratulated Buhari.
He said, “I am here today to tell you that I am not dead. Or am I dead? In every election, there would be winners and losers. The same thing happened during the last presidential election.
“I am alive. Today, I won’t talk about what happened before, during and after the election. That will come another day.
“I am talking to you now because I am travelling tomorrow and some people will go into the streets and say I was carried into air ambulance.
“President Jonathan that contested election had congratulated the winner and the whole world acclaimed him for conceding defeat. Jonathan was the one who contested election, I didn’t. So, why should I die”.
