Following the rumoured fallout between Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe and Ex- Information Minister, Chief Edwin Clark, over an abandoned project, Orubebe has issued a statement denying the rift.
Recently there have been speculations that Orubebe and Edwin Clark are having a rift over the non-execution of a project even after payment was made.
Orubebe attributed the rumours as the work of mischief-makers trying to create disunity . He said ;
“I completely dissociate myself from that publication because it never came from me and it is the imagination of mischief-makers.
“There was a time, these same mischief makers tried to bring a wedge between me and my father, Chief Edwin Clark. They failed woefully. For reasons best known to them, they want to try again. But just as they failed in the past, they have failed again.
“I unequivocally reiterate that Chief Edwin Clark is a proud son of Niger Delta, a revered leader of the Ijaw Nation and a father to many including myself. He is a forthright elder statesman who has contributed immensely towards the emancipation of the Niger Delta in particular and Nigeria as a whole.
“I hold Chief Clark in the highest esteem and no matter what the mischief-makers do, they cannot separate me and my father, Chief Edwin Clark,”
