Donald Duke takes presidential campaign to church
2019 presidential hopeful Donald Duke, Thursday, took his campaign to the international Headquarter of Deeper Life Bible Church, Gbagada, Lagos.
Donald Duke, a former governor of Cross River State was a surprise guest at the weekly Revival and Evangelism Hour programme where Christian faithful’s gather to get biblical teachings.
Duke, who was invited to the pulpit, urged Christians to move beyond complaining and get involved in politics, saying it is time to stand up together to oppose all forms of inequality and discrimination.
He said, “I urge us all to move beyond complaining and watching things go wrong, stop consigning ourselves to the complacent seat of criticism and forlorn hope and rather stand up to those who wish to desecrate our future with ill-informed policies, strategies and crass ignorance.”
Although Duke is yet to declare the platform of which political party on which he will run in the next general election, he intends to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari during the polls.
He notes that “The solution lies in our collective resolve to take back our destiny in our hands, reclaim our future and reassess the rules of engagement in all strata of our national life”.
Duke called on all Nigerians to recognize the strength in cultural diversity and awaken democratic activism, stating that Nigeria, cannot live in penury despite the abundance of talents and skills.
“The essence of the privilege of my speaking to you today is a clarion call to each and everyone of us, particularly our youth, to recognize our strength in our diversity, and to awaken to democratic activism, actualize the powers imbued in your rights of suffrage with a conscious realisation that skills, industry, productivity, and competitiveness are determinant factors for national greatness.”
