2019: Why there’ll be no elections – Senior lawyer, Robert Clarke

A former lawyer to several Heads of State, Robert Clarke, SAN, has stated that he sees no election taking place in the country come 2019.

The legal luminary who has enjoyed over 45 years at the bar, said it would be dangerous to hold election under the present political structure.

Fielding questions from Sun, Robert Clarke, said, “I doubt that the 2019 election can hold in this country under these circumstances that we are going, except the political parties sit down together and restructure this country.

“Going into election in 2019 under the 1999 Constitution portends danger to democracy.

“We have all said it, and it is still going to play, that our system of choosing candidates within the political party is the most corrupt system in the whole world, where a candidate that tries to vie for the position of a governor has to spend well over N5 billion just to get the nomination of his party.

“We shouldn’t allow such. So, we have to restructure and restructuring is to jettison the 1999 Constitution; it creates problem that bother on corruption and leads to people who want to get into governance to steal money to recoup what they spent while contesting.”
