Donald Duke 21

Former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke, said on Tuesday that he has interest in becoming Nigeria's president if the opportunity comes.

Duke said this at a programme, "The Nigerian Symposium for Emerging Leaders" held in Lagos on Tuesday.

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.

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

So folks, would you vote for Donald Duke if he contests in 2019?
