He revealed how Okowa hosted the 17 governors in the southern region in a meeting where a resolution was reached that a candidate from the south would be endorsed and supported for the presidency.

Clark said Okowa betrayed the resolution of the meeting and supported the candidacy of a northerner (Atiku) instead of a southern candidate.

His words:

"A meeting of the 17 governors of the south. He provided accommodation for every one of them. They drafted the communique supervised by him and gave it to Akeredolu (ondo state governor) to read.
"Then they all went to Lagos to confirm it, they went to Enugu to confirm it. Not knowing that the same Okowa was spending our money on Atiku."

Chief Clark added that Okowa deceived and betrayed his colleagues as he described the former Delta State governor as quiet, deceptive, and crafty.

2023 Presidency: "Okowa is a betrayer," Edwin Clark breathes fire

Earlier in February, Ifeanyi Okowa was urged to apologise to southern Nigeria for agreeing to be Atiku Abubakar's running mate.

The call came on Thursday, February 2, from an Ijaw leader and elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark.

Clark, who accused Okowa of embezzling Delta state's funds, said it was selfishness on Okowa's part to accept the vice presidential slot of the PDP.
