Nigeria is at war – Donald Duke
Former Governor of Cross River, Donald Duke has said that the country is at war and that the best thing to be done should be salvage the situation and not aggravate it.
Duke also noted that if indeed the country intends to enjoy some respite of peace, then, the senate should cease to be “a retirement home for Governors”.
Duke made this known via his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday night. When he wrote; “The Senate won’t find peace until former governors stop making it a retirement home,” he wrote.
His comments came hours after former Akwa Ibom Governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Akpabio said that he decided to join a party that would sweep away poverty and impunity.
“The country is at war and all the hands must be on deck to salvage the situation and not to aggravate it.
“As keepers of national emergency, everyone should put heads together. I decided to join to emancipate the people and provide succour for the people,” he said.
