Clarke said this in light of Abati’s article in which he blamed Clark for not perceiving Jonathan as a “child” any longer on the grounds that he was out of office. In an email sent to Premiumtimes, Clarke said

“My recommendation that an exposure advisory group made up of famous writers be placed set up in Aso Rock and that media proprietors and senior columnists ought to be welcome to Aso Rock were ejected by Abati in view of what I assume is his rapaciousness, especially when numerous columnists and media houses dependably griped to me that he was not conveying them along.

Dr. Reuben Abati has ascended to the protection of his last manager past the point of no return. He owes the previous President statements of regret for his (Reuben Abati) inability to perform while in office. I ought not be utilized as a substitute. I cherish Goodluck Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan adores me. I don’t review any good comment made by Abati every one of those years when he was the director of the Editorial Board [of the Guardian] and syndicated reporter about the previous president, His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan. On the off chance that I review accurately, they were dependably the butt of scorn by Dr. Reuben Abati. Actually, he turned out to be so famous and brave a commentator of previous President Jonathan and his wife in the Guardian Newspaper that I needed to draw the consideration of my cousin the proprietor of the Guardian daily paper to his overabundances. These vitriolic assaults on previous President Jonathan and his wife just ceased when he was named the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity by the previous president,” he said.

“He said he stayed pleased with the execution of Mr. Jonathan in various zones, for example, the railroad framework, economy, battle against polio and ebola, maternal wellbeing, the force segment, and so on. He tarred a bigger number of streets than any of his antecedents; he swung farming to agro-business, a multibillion dollar business; he assembled the Almajiri schools in the Northern parts of this nation. He set up new government colleges over this country; he took into account free discourse over this country, and did wouldn’t fret when he was censured or, even, manhandled. Individuals were not subjectively secured up prison or jail, as he genuinely regarded the standard of law. He marked the Freedom of Information Bill into law, which was not done by his forerunners; he modernized the avionics division; he assembled a National Conference that united Nigerians and proffered suggestions on the best way to better tie Nigerians together as one. He purified the appointive arrangement of this nation, not at all like what we had before him, when races results were reported without really voting, when vote grabbing were wild and basic spot. He brought straightforwardness into the appointive procedure – when individuals could vote and the votes entirely checked without roughness. Today he remains as the first African president to surrender a race to a rival, even before the last checks. With regards to my character, I can’t say in private what I can’t say in people in general. I don’t along these lines, dismiss or repudiate Jonathan as my cherished political child,” he compos.
