A former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, has said that he will contest for presidency in the 2019 general elections.
Duke, who declared his interest for the plum job at the 3rd Mike Omotosho Annual Lecture titled, “Mellinials as Protagonists in Nation Building,” on Sunday night in Abuja, promised to kick-start the process at the right circumstances.
According to him, “I am entitled to run for the presidency of this country. I am entitled to it. Only on right circumstances I will aspire for it. I don’t shy away from responsibility, only the right circumstance, I will aspire for presidency of this country. I have what it takes to be president of this country”.
Duke, however, challenged the youths to fully participate in the electoral process by getting their Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, and sensitising others ahead of 2019 general election, rather than loafing around, looking for who to heap their problems on.
Does he stand a chance?
