A former governor of Cross River State and Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Donald Duke has declared that the party will defeat other political parties during the 2019 presidential election.
Duke said SDP will defeat both the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, because the party was back to restore the nation.
Speaking while inaugurating the state secretariat of the SDP in Calabar, the capital of Cross River state, Duke said he and other like-minded individuals, across the board, and party members were working assiduously to ensure victory for the party at the polls.
He said, “The SDP as a party is on a rescue mission from the danger the country is into because there is no positive hope for Nigerians.
“We have come to put the country in the right direction, therefore, SDP is prepared and committed to taking hold of the country come 2019.
“We have come to build, recover and restore our dear country from the bad leadership of the so-called APC and PDP ideologies.”
“People have asked me why I left the PDP, and I always tell them that I left because the umbrella was breaking,” he said.
