A former Governor of Cross River State, Mr Donald Duke, said on Tuesday he has not dropped his presidential ambition.
Duke stated this in a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said the speculations that he has dropped the presidential aspiration were untrue.
The ex-governor said he has not officially declared for the presidency for strategic reasons.
“Sometime ago, I said I will run for the presidency of the country if the opportunity presented itself.
“Yes, my presidential ambition is still intact. I am only waiting for the opportunity to present itself to make the right move,’’ he said.
Asked on what platform he would run, since he was a member of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s inspired “Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM),” he said it was too early to decide on the matter.
