Former Cross River Governor, Mr. Donald Duke has said that Nigerians are currently being sacrificed for political expediency.

Mr. Duke who is gunning for president took to Twitter to express his opinion on Tuesday where he said the defections hitting the polity were to the detriment of the citizenry.

“As the APC/PDP musical chairs continues, governance and our collective wellbeing is sacrificed on the alter of political expediency and brinkmanship.
Poor Nigeria,” Duke tweeted.

Political watchers say that the defections are a repeat of the wave that hit the Nigerian polity in 2014.

So many who had defected from the People’s Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress prior to the 2015 general elections have since returned.

Meanwhile, Mr. Duke also tweeted a clip from a recent interview with Hero Daniels of Linda Ikeji TV where he explained the reason why he is running for presidency now.

He said he is worried that there is need to change the narrative that is in existence and said he was at the point of his life were he has “experience and exposure” to lead the country.
