He said he was not going to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Clark spoke while playing host to the Think Nigeria First Initiative group, who paid him a courtesy visit at his Asokoro Residence in Abuja.
He however said that despite announcing his retirement from active politics, he will not stop speaking out against any form of injustice anywhere in the country.
He said President Jonathan meant well for Nigeria but lacked will power to tackle corrupt politicians in the country.
He explained that the former president could have done it different instead of carrying on in the steps of his predecessors maintaining that gentleman virtue was not enough to govern.
