Former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, has expressed his disapproval of thee zoning of the Presidency.

Speaking on Hard Copy hosted by Maope Ogun on Channels TV, Duke opined, “I have never subjected myself to zoning, when I ran for Governor I was not afforded zoning, everybody and everyone was able to run in Cross River.”

He insisted that, “Besides its my constitutional right to run, you can’t zone my right, I think it’s unconstitutional to zone.

The former governor added that he was born a Nigerian  irrespective of the region he comes from.“Besides. like I said to you I was born a Nigerian, I wasn’t born an Easterner or Westerner, I was born after Independence. So my outlook is Nigerian.”

He concluded that Nigeria is in a critical state and should discard zoning and go for the best.

Senior members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) criticised Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose for announcing his ambition to vie for Presidency in 2019 against the zoning arrangement of the two major political parties in the nation.
