ABUJA- FORMER Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark has urged State Governors to find ways of solving their problems which should be addressed by them and leave President Goodluck Jonathan out of those issues, just as he stressed that in the history of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan remains the only president ever produced that has not been ambitious to govern.

Speaking yesterday at his Asokoro residence when he received members of the Federal Capital Territory and Geo- Political Leaders Forum led by Amb. Ayuba Ngbako, Chief Clark said, "some people believe that they are governors of their states, when they have problems, they call on Jonathan; governors should solve the problems of their states."

The Elder Statesman who reiterated that President Jonathan was dragged to become the running mate to late President Umaru Yard' Adua without his knowing about it when names like former Governors Peter Odili of Rivers, Donald Duke of Cross River where penciled down to take the position as it was zoned to South South geo – political zone of the country, said that Jonathan who later became the running mate was not on the list.

According to him, when President Jonathan was informed of the development, he refused because he said he would prefer to remain and work in Bayelsa State as governor, even as he stressed that as fate would have it, without struggling for it, he became the acting President, later the president, adding that Nigerians were presently pressurising and begging him to re- contest ad not him forcing himself out to contest.

Speaking further, Chief Clark told the FCT Indigenes that they had no choice than to support the president because of the development of the FCT, using the just concluded National Conference to give them a ministerial slot, Mayor for the inner nucleus; Additional Area Councils; additional Federal Constituencies; Commission for FCT, among others.

Speaking earlier, leader of the FCT Indigenes and Geo- political Leaders Forum, Amb.

Ayuba Ngbako told Chief Clark that in support of President Goodluck Jonathan's re- election, bid, the FCT indigenes and the leader would organise a rally where thousands of residents would match the streets of Abuja, urging him to contest, even as they asked for an additional Senatorial slot for the FCT to make it two.

According to him, the group will also mobilise the people of FCT to vote for the president before the primaries and after as well as other contestants on the platform of the PDP, adding that they will also show case the dividends and achievements of the transformation agenda of the president to the FCT indigenes and other Nigerians.
He also disclosed that the body as part of moves to institutionalise President Jonathan's legacy, it has concluded plans to establish a fellowship titled ' Goodluck Jonathan Fellowship Centre for Young

Leaders, adding that it was an initiative by some Nigerians in the Diaspora and the centre would be a flagship fellowship of the President's young leaders initiative and an embodiment of the President's commitment to invest in the future of Nigerian youths as well as to institutionalise his governance legacies in the minds of Nigerian youths.
