Former Cross Rivers state governor, Donald Duke, will be running for the position of president on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP). According to the former governor, he would be running issue based campaigns, ‘personality driven campaigns have gotten us nowhere. ‘

In a statement by the presidential candidate on Monday, he revealed that his motto is: everyone matters, that it doesn’t matter where you are from.

See full statement below

Let me start by thanking the Social Democratic Party for the organisation of the convention on Saturday. I would also like to thank my co runners for their sportsmanship and their commitment to work together as our goals are the same to get Nigeria on track.

A nation without justice as an anchor will fail and it is our aim to correct that, to bring justice into our nation. The failure of Nigeria will have consequences reaching far beyond our borders. We cannot allow that happen. We must stop treating symptoms of the problem as opposed to the problem itself.

Successive governments have failed to create an environment which encourages productivity. My motto, and that of this campaign coming into this election is simple; everyone matters. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what you believe in, everyone matters.

Every 4 years, every electoral cycle, Nigeria raises the hopes of the world, that this time, we will get it right. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet gotten it right. That is about to change. We intend to do things differently. We are the suitable and credible alternative that Nigeria desires and needs.

Personality driven campaigns have gotten us nowhere. We must focus on the strength of ideas and run issue based campaigns.
