Duke Won’t Disappoint Nigerians-Ekpo

Duke Won’t Disappoint Nigerians-Ekpo

Candidate of the SDP in Cross River State, Mr Eyo Ekpo has spoken of the character and capacity of Mr Donald Duke as the needed tools required to properly lead the country, just as he has said that the former governor will not let the country down if voted into power.

            Ekpo said this in a statement on Monday. According to him,“Donald has the temperament, political maturity and exposure to lead our country.”

            He said Duke victory was “a testament to the wonderful work he did while he served Nigerians as governor of Cross River State. Cross Riverians and indeed Nigerians, see Donald- the only presidential candidate for the 2019 elections whose blueprint for governance is already out in the open for engagement- as a trustworthy alternative to the misrule that the APC and PDP represent.

            “Donald, when he held sway in our state, raised it from the backwaters of economic negligence to become the envy of observers, both within and outside the country. Anyone who had been to Nigeria but did not visit Cross River was said to have missed out on a very uplifting experience, as he developed Cross River into a true people’s paradise.

“His efforts to emancipate the state from dependence on the central government oil economy was evident in his pro-tourism agenda: introduction of the Calabar Carnival; the restoration of the Obudu Mountain Resort; introduction of Obudu Mountain Race; and the facelift given to all the major tourist sites, including the creation of access roads to these facilities. His efforts are indelible in the hearts of Cross Riverians, and indeed, the nation.

“As someone who spent his primary school years in Lagos, attended Federal Government colleges in Ilorin and Sokoto, University years in Zaria and Philadelphia, USA, and then cut his teeth politically as a successful Governor in one of Nigeria’s most ethnically and geographically diverse states, I am convinced that Donald has the temperament, political maturity, and the exposure to lead our country onward and upwards.”
