Anti-Corruption War, Emergency Rule: Adoke Hasn’t Given Jonathan Good Advice – Clark

Published

on

Mr. Bello Adoke (SAN)The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Mohammed Adoke, has been accused of not giving President Goodluck Jonathan ‘good advice’.

He has also been accused of misinforming the President on the declaration of partial state of emergency in the three troubled North-East states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.

Frontline Ijaw leader and delegate at the ongoing National Conference, Chief Edwin Clark, made these weighty allegations on Tuesday in Abuja while speaking with reporters on the state of emergency in the three states.

Clark noted that after watching the minister, who he said he has been ‘too patient’ with for a while, he came to the occlusion that Adoke has not done enough in the fight against corruption, stressing that as the Attorney General of the Federation, he ought to strengthen the judicial process.

He said: “Before I took this decision, I have been too patent. I have watched him for so long. In most cases he has not done well. He has not given the President good advice. On the issue of corruption, he has not done well.

“A good Attorney General would give strength to the administration by ensuring that corruption cases are fully prosecuted”.

On the role of the minister in the declaration of partial state of emergency in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states, the one-time Federal Commissioner of Information said Adoke misadvised the president by citing the case of the former Governor of Plateau State now turned Senator, Joshua Dariye.

According to the elder statesman, the Supreme Court did not condemn former President Olusegun Obasanjo for suspending the democratic structures in Plateau State when he declared emergency rule in the state, contrary to what the minister made President Jonathan to believe.

He stressed that the minister ought to have done his homework well before advising the president on the declaration of partial state of emergency in the three Boko Haram troubled states.
