2019 ELECTION: Donald Duke Joins the Presidential Race under SDP
Former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, has announced he would run for the office of Nigerian president on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
Mr Duke, a two-term governor of Cross River State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had been expected to run on the party’s platform.
He, however, announced his decision at the national secretariat of the SDP this afternoon where he was received by the national secretary, Shehu Gabam, the publicity secretary, Alfa Mohammed, amongst others.
He said he left his party of about 20 years because it had derailed and lost its values and was not the same party he joined back then.
