From North to South, East to West, the bells of celebration are tolling to honour one of Nigeria’s most outstanding and venerated statesmen, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark. Variously known as a teacher, a lawyer, a senator, a cabinet minister, and most significantly as the country’s oldest activist and one that it can still boast of, Chief Clark remains a voice for the voiceless, a defender of the weak and a protagonist of the entrenchment of the values of human dignity and democracy. He is, by all means, a great, good, old man!
For his great national service, he has been saluted by President Muhammadu Buhari as well as former Head of State Yakubu Gowan, Ibrahim Babaginda, Abudusalem Abubakar and President Goodluck Jonathan.
