Clark, who is famous for speaking truth to power, highly respected for his views on national issues and the former federal Commissioner for Information granted an interview with a select band of journalists, bares his mind on critical national issues including the yet-to-be-transmitted ministers’ designate list to the Senate for screening and confirmation. Excerpts below.
In his words: “This is an issue I don’t normally agree with people on; counting days and months. The President should be given an opportunity to submit his list. The President in those days, you find that every party will like to nominate candidates and they disagree from one region to the other.
“It takes some time. I do not think it is too late to appoint ministers. After all, the National Assembly has just resumed. Let Mr. President take some time to appoint some people, expert, technocrats, who will serve this country creditably, not looking inward alone. That is my concern, not the time factor.
