Clark forfeits lunch to blast victims
A delegate at the National Conference Edwin Clark yesterday called for his lunch which costs N4000 a day to be monetised and the proceeds utilised for the treatment of victims of the Nyanya bomb blast.
Clark, whose son was kidnapped two weeks ago, said it was imperative that the conference sent a message to the Federal Government on the way forward because the country was no longer safe.
“I think the issue of my son that was kidnapped is very small now. What is happening in Nigeria is a national issue. Nigerians are being killed day by day. We have a duty to look into this issue and not to play politics with it. It is a national calamity,” he said.
Clark admonished the conference to know that the existence of Nigeria as a nation would depend on what delegates do with the opportunity the National Conference has offered them.
“We have no other country to go to,” he added, “we hear everyday 200 people being killed, and we show no concern; we sit down here deliberating, what are we deliberating about? This Conference must send a message to government.”
