Jonathan not an ambitious politician

A former Federal Commissioner of Information, Chief Edwin Clark, has said President Goodluck Jonathan is not an ambitious politician.

Clark said this was because of the alleged refusal of the President to accept to be running mate to the late President, Alhaji Umaru Yar?Adua in 2007.
 
He said instead of being a Vice President, Jonathan said he was alright with being the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for Bayelsa State the same year.
The foremost Ijaw leader said President Jonathan was persuaded to be the running mate to the late President, adding that if he were to be ambitious, he would have jumped at the offer.

Clark spoke in Abuja on Monday at his residence, when he received a group known as Federal Capital Territory Indigenes and Geo-Political Forum Leaders.

He said in spite of several pressure being mounted on the President to openly declare for second term, he has refused, saying such action was not common in Nigerian leaders.

Clark said, ?This is the first time we have a president that is not ambitious. Nigerians are asking him to openly declare for 2015 but he has refused.

?There is peace in Nigeria despite the fact that some people have been planning to make the country ungovernable. We are not in a country whereby only one region or section would be ruling.

?Jonathan didn?t want to become of President of Nigeria, just like Gen. Yakubu Gowon. Jonathan was not ambitious. It was the South-South people who provide the most resources of the country and should therefore be involved in the running and managing of the resources.?
