‘Strange Elements Occupied Seats That Founders Should Have, We Will Not Take Anything For Granted In 2023’ — Former Cross River Governor
Mr. Donald Duke, former governor of Cross River State has criticized the People’s Democratic Party in the state for opening its doors to strange elements to take over the party in the state.
He stated this in Calabar while receiving some defectors from the All Progressives Congress.
Duke who contested the 2019 Presidential Election under Social Democratic Party (SDP), recently returned to the party.
The former number citizen in Cross River said these strange elements occupied seats that ought to have been occupied by founders of the party, adding that the party will not take anything for granted in 2023 and that is why it is bringing back it’s founding fathers.
He said “The party opened its doors and those that are stranger elements came in and occupied seats that founders should have.
“We will not rest on our oars and will not take anything for granted.
“Today, Cross River State is not where it ought to be.
“Those who are in charge of the state do not know where we came from and are today taking us to the wilderness.
“This state should have been among the five wealthiest in the country but our benevolence got the better of us.
“We had to recall all our founders to come back and tidy the house, we cannot afford to give our best brains to other people”, Mr Donald Duke said.
