A former governor of Cross River State, Mr Donald Duke, has announced his intention to run for the Office of President in the 2019 general elections.
Mr Duke declared his interest while speaking at the annual Law dinner of the University of Nigeria, Anambra State on Friday.
The former governor while speaking on the topic – ‘Nigeria In Clear and Present Danger’, explained that although he wasn’t yet sure of the platform with which he will be contesting, he was convinced that it was time to make a move towards addressing Nigeria’s multiple issues.
Recall that Mr Duke who is currently a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was one of those who welcomed the Coalition For Nigeria Movement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo in February.
He was also one of those who witnessed the formal registration of the former president (Obasanjo) as a member of the group, which he had called for to save Nigeria from the myriad of challenges facing the country
