I don’t have Obasanjo’s backing to run for presidency - Donald Duke

A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mr. Donald Duke has said former President Olusegun Obasanjo has not given his blessings in his quest to become the next President of Nigeria. 

Donald Duke Duke, a former governor of Cross River, who recently declared his intention to run for the exalted office, told newsmen in Lagos that though he remained close to Obasanjo, his decision to run was personal.
 

“I am not hypocritical. I am close to the former president but he is neither my sponsor nor backup. However, those who come up with these propaganda also go to get the ex-president’s endorsement. 

“I will not keep people aside because of what others think. I need everybody’s support but I am running as Duke and nobody’s stogie. 

“I will be putting myself up to run. How it pans out is not what I can say’’ he said. 

On the zoning in the PDP, Duke said that it would not deter him from running as it remained his constitutional rights. (NAN)
