Donald Duke

Former Cross River State governor, Donald Duke, is one of the people aspiring to become president in the next dispensation.

Speaking during an interview about the issue of LGBT rights in Nigeria Duke said“I don’t understand the emotional feelings a gay person would have toward someone of their sexuality. I don’t understand it. But I would not criminalise them. I would ensure that they have the protection of the law. But if they want to exhibit their sexuality, then that’s an affront on the current norms of society.”

 

“Can you have a gay person in your cabinet?” Laila asked. “His sexuality is private to him,” the former governor answered. I don’t want to know if he’s gay. It’s not my business. My business is if he can perform the assignment that he’s been assigned.

Duke said this during an recent interview with Falz and Laila on a television show ‘On The Couch’On the issue of the highly contentious special anti robbery squad (SARS) and if he would scrap the agency, the presidential aspirant said categorially, “Of course I would. Because I do not subscribe to the force where people carry arms and they’re not in uniform.”  

Should we voted him in as president?
