I want to become Nigeria president- Donald Duke

Donald Duke, a former governor of Cross River state, said on Tuesday that he wants to become Nigeria’s president.

Duke who revealed this at an event tagged The Nigerian Symposium for Emerging Leaders, in Lagos, said that he will not hesitate to lead the country if the opportunity comes.

He added that it was because of his interest in the presidency that he decided not to contest for a legislative position.

“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 as published by Punch.

He also urged young people to be more proactive in politics.
