Chief Edwin Clark

The national leader the Congress for Equality and Change, Chief Edwin Clark has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to ensure that the proposed amnesty for members of the fundamentalist sect; Boko Haram is not left in the realms of speculations or ambiguity.
The Ijaw leader advised that there should be a wider stakeholder consultation before arriving at the modalities necessary for the preconditions to grant amnesty to Boko Haram members.

Chief Clark also warned that deliberate steps should be taken to ensure that the move does not constitute an incentive for unpatriotic elements or groups to cash in on criminality and seek refuge in amnesty.
He further urged the federal government to consider the creation of special courts to try terrorism matters.
