Edem Duke Joins Cross River Guber Race

Published

on


Immediate past minister for Culture, Tourism and National Orientation, High Chief Edem Duke, yesterday, declared his intention to contest for the office of  Cross River State governor under the platform of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.

Duke made the declaration in his hometown in Ikot Edem Odo Ward, Akpabuyo local government area of the state and lamented that Cross River State has lost its status as “a jewel in the crown of Nigeria” under the present administration.

According to Duke, before now Cross River State used to be a reference point adding that it was on the basis of that, that former President Olusegun Obasanjo used to show other governors how a state should look like, but unfortunately this is no longer the case.

He said, “It is therefore important for us to put in place an agenda for the restoration of our paradise. We must restore this paradise. Cross River used to be the tourism destination of Nigeria. That is why it is important for men and women of good will to stand together when we have seen that unless we salvage our today, there is no guarantee of a tomorrow for us.

“I have pledged myself to be a steward for the people of Cross River State. And I want to assure Cross Riverians that this is a major assignment that we must achieve. If the state progresses, that progress trickles down to everyone.
