Donald Duke Slams Atiku

In a video circulating on social media, Duke stated that Atiku has been contesting for the presidency since 1992 by moving from one party to another in his consistent quest to become the president of Nigeria.

The governor, who noted that Atiku’s presidential ambition is becoming unreasonable, urged him to step aside for others instead of contesting for the 6th time after his first attempt in 1992.

Duke said, “Let’s take a look at the four leading contestants from the northern part of our party – the PDP. These are the four gentlemen that moved across to APC and produced Buhari. Then come back, and still want the ticket.

“But also, let me focus on Atiku Abubakar. Atiku has been contesting for the presidency since 1992.

“Indeed, there is no election since 1992 that he has not participated in. He ran against Abiola. In 1999, he ran as first as governor, then as vice president.

“In 2003, he picked a form and that was what led to the crisis between him and Obasanjo. In 2007, I think he ran on AD or so. In 2011, he came back to PDP and ran against Jonathan. In 2015, he ran, in 2019, he ran..in 2023, he wants to run. Haba! Na only you dey?

“A time comes when you look at it and say it is enough. Let me be a kingmaker rather than this king. Because when people tell me that they heard from God, I have never heard from God, but you see signs of where he wants you to go.

“If you keep doing one thing over and over again and it is not happening, then God is not with you. Leave this Abraham Lincoln story that he ran many times before he got it, he ran only two times and he got it.

“So, it is becoming ridiculous. What the north wants is not different from what the south wants. But we all want a sense of belonging. That is a commonality among us.

“How do we justify to our children that after eight years of northern leadership, we go back and have another eight years? Ordinarily, I am not a proponent of zoning, but I am a proponent of equity.”

  1. Well spoken by Donald Duke. On the faulty analogy with Abraham Lincoln who ran many times before becoming U.S president, not that Lincoln did so under one party, GOP or Republican Party, not many different parties like Atiku. Second, note also that U.S environment at the time is 100% different from Nigerian environment. Third, democracy and governance in U.S is again totally different from nigeria’s and especially with different party ideologies with parties in Nigeria having zero ideologies. Fourth and last but not the least, is the fact that Lincoln was a born-again Christian while Atiku is a Muslim who recently exposed his Islamic fundamentalism by not condemning the recent gruesome murder of christian young lady Deborah Samuel by Islamic extremists in Sokoto state on alleged blasphemy against Islamic Prophet Muhammad. These obvious opposite realities definitely affirm that the only possible with Atiku-Lincoln comparison is that Atiku will lose again if he runs again quite unlike Abraham Lincoln.
