Mr. Donald Duke, a former Governor of Cross River State has said that he is not a supporter of zoning of the Presidency.
Mr. Duke while speaking on Hard Copy anchored by Maope Ogun on Channels TV said, “I have never subjected myself to zoning, when I ran for Governor I was not afforded zoning, everybody and everyone was able to run in Cross River.”
He maintained that, “Besides its my constitutional right to run, you can’t zone my right, I think it’s unconstitutional to zone and besides like I said to you I was born a Nigerian, I wasn’t born an Easterner or Westerner, I was born after Independence. So my outlook is Nigerian.”
Concluding, Mr. Donald said Nigeria was in dire straits and should jettison zoning and go for the best.
Mr. Donald Duke is a presidential aspirant.
