Edwin Clark: Obasanjo left prison with 20k but is now one of Africa's richest
Elder statesman and Ijaw stakeholder Edwin Clark says he still maintains his criticism of corruption, reminding journalists of the allegations he levelled against former president Olusegun Obasanjo in the past. Clark was speaking in his Warri, Delta State residence on Friday 5 August 2016.

His words:

“I talked about corruption during the time of erstwhile President Obasanjo and Yar’ Adua.

“During Jonathan’s time, I accused Chief Obasanjo that he was the most corrupt ex-president Nigeria had ever produced. I said that he left prison with only N20,000, but today he is one of the wealthiest former presidents in the whole of West Africa.

“I was also in the forefront of fighting our former governor, Chief James Ibori, leading to him being sentenced UK. Every Nigerian is aware of this. I led the crusade against him especially when a judge dropped the charges against him.”
