Former governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke, has indicated interest to run for 2019 presidential election. 55-year-old Duke said he would contest for presidency, if the opportunity presents itself. This was said at a programme, “The Nigerian Symposium for Emerging Leaders’’, held in Lagos. Noting that he once aspired for the position but did not succeed in being the candidate of “Peoples Democratic Party”, he said that he would still contest for the highest office in the country at an appropriate time. Speaking, he said “I do not have the flair for the legislature; standing up and sitting down at the chambers to raise a point. That is why I did not contest for the Senate but the presidency, after serving out my terms 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.” The youth group termed “Nigeria Professional Youth Vanguard” have pledged their support toward Duke’s presidential ambition in 2019. Princess Ayi Umoh, who is the group’s National Coordinator, said in Calabar, Cross River State capital, that the group will work using the slogan: “Donald Duke for Unity, Stability, Peace and Progress”. Concluding she said, “The real change the nation and its citizens want is when they come out enmasse to vote for the former governor of Cross River State in the 2019 presidential election.” Photo Credit: Getty
