Former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South Leader, Chief Edwin Clark, yesterday described as most uncharitable comments by former Inspector- General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Coomassie that the removal of Suleiman Abba as Inspector General of Police was suspicious.
According to Chief Clark, Coomassie’s statements were ethnically driven and designed to incite the North against President Goodluck Jonathan, just as he stressed that elections have come and gone and winners and those who lost should shelve their differences and work together for the overall interest and well-being of the country and called on Nigerians to jettison all divisive tendencies for the unity of the country.
He said adding, “For unity to be sustained, equity, justice, fairness and trust are the sacrosanct ingredients to cement our co-existence. We must be our neighbour’s keeper and for this to be realized, all hands must be on deck.”
Addressing Journalists yesterday at his Asokoro residence, Abuja, the Elder statesman who noted that comments by the Chairman, Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF were provocative, wrong and unwarranted especially coming from him as a former Inspector- General of Police and Chairman of ACF, an umbrella body of the North.
