Former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, has said that he is not a supporter of zoning of the Presidency.
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.
“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, the ex-governor said Nigeria was in dire straits and should jettison zoning and go for the best.
