Former Gov Donald Duke Wants To Be Nigeria's President

A former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, on Tuesday declared that he wants to be Nigeria’s President.



The ex-governor spoke at a programme, “The Nigerian Symposium for Emerging Leaders,” held in Lagos.


Duke said though he once aspired to the position but did not emerge the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he would still contest for the highest office in the country at the appropriate time.

He further explained that it was because of his preference for the presidential seat that he did not vie for any federal legislative seat after serving out his terms as governor.


He said, “I do not have the flair for the legislature; standing up and sitting down at the chambers to raise a point. That was why I did not contest for the Senate but the presidency, after serving out my term as governor.”


“I have contested the presidency before; I will still give it a shot when the opportunity presents itself. I believe I still have the energy in me,” he said.

He, however, canvassed the reform of the country`s political system to accommodate wider participation and good governance.

He suggested the review of the electoral law to allow for independent candidacy. Duke said the country`s democracy would fare better if young people, who form the larger proportion of the population,took more active part in its political process.

He's alright by looks. But don't know if his qualifications. I prefer Osibajo and maybe Donald as Vice President. That combo will be correct.

Maybe FFK should contest with Fayose as vice

Please we don't need these recycled thieves. Forget about his youthfulness,handsomeness and gentle appearance,they are all deceptive. This guy stole more than Ibori and Igbinedion put together during his tenure as Cross-Rivers state governor. His state allocation was far bigger than many other states if not the largest,what did he do with those allocations? Apart from the Tinapa nonsense. He and Peter Odili were the most coded criminals/looters of their era. His state indigenes should hold him to give account first. Moreover wetin him forget for governance wey he remember now?

AGELESS T said...

Young and vibrant is not the only required qualities, his past records should be revisited to know his abilities towards leadership.

Forget that he was fantastically corrupt but smart about it. If he was the only one mentioned not to be corrupt then what happened to all that were mentioned to be corrupt? Have they all been prosecuted.

Fashola me? I am a lagiosian and I can tell you that fashola didn't do anything fantastic in lagos. The will pass law but never implement it. A new born baby can govern lagos with the right media and you would think he/she is doing a perfect job.

Duke is a fine theif but still a theif. He and his wife are as crooked as they come. Nigerians dont be fooled there are so many other qualified leaders we need to give a chance to. like someone said what did he forget hat he wants to go back to collect.

Don't mind them. They don't read or do research na. Sold Bakassi that has been part of Nigeria for so long and couldn't even settled indigenes that came back people suffered and died like chickens under him. Camerounians were killing Nigerians like mad in Bakassi. If he becomes president he will just sell the whole Nigeria to Cameroon .
