When I ran for Governor of Cross River State in 1999, they told us again and again that I was naïve and I couldn’t win but we didn’t listen, we went ahead and won the election twice! As Governor when I sought to transform the State, they said it was too ambitious and was impossible, but I was undeterred and by the time we were leaving in 2007, Cross River State was on the global map as a force to reckon with in terms tourism, agriculture, education and health amongst other firsts. We had turned things around.
Support Donald Duke!
All my life, I have placed implicit faith in the ability of the people to bring about the transformation that move things forward and that faith has never failed me and today I am running for President because I still believe in the ability of the people to positively alter the narrative when things go wrong like they have in Nigeria today.
