Donald Duke: "You Can’t Zone My Constitutional Right To Contest For President"

Former Governor of Cross River state, Mr. Donald Duke has said that he is not a supporter of zoning of the Presidency of the country to any particular zone as is currently being practiced.

Duke, speaking on Hard Copy on Channels 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. Duke said Nigeria was in dire straits and should jettison zoning and go for the best.
