You’re The Most Cowardly Person To Occupied Government House — Donald Duke Rubbishes Ayade
Former Cross River Governor, Donald Duke has slammed Governor Ben Ayade over text message to him.
“He is not a relative or family but I see him as an acquaintance who amuses me when I am bored. If I’m bored I could sit with Ayade and drink small stout and he will make me laugh but to think that I am his mate, I am not his mate at all.

“When we started this journey about 24 years ago, he was somewhere acquiring his fake degrees. Fake! You can’t stand here and say this is a professor and Ayade would affirm that he is a professor. Professor of what? You know, we admit something, we made a mistake. In 2015, we made a grievous mistake by bringing someone from nowhere to Government House, Calabar and we have paid dearly for it. We are regressed for over thirty years. It’s worse than I met it in 99 and he has the temerity to send me a text telling me such nonsense.
“You know, when you’re a governor, you’re the Chief Security Officer in the State. When ENDSARS struck, he was the first one to run. Even his ADC, did not know where he was. He is the most cowardly person that has occupied Government House. Absolutely! Now he says why is he the object of those campaign? Why not?

“We are going to campaign on your records. It’s a good thing and a blessing to us that he left PDP and went to where he is because you know they say, water finds its level, he has found his level; level of non-entities, that’s where he is. It’s not my place to derogate anybody, but I find that for that man who has ridiculed our State to this level with a twist and stupid budgets, you don’t raise more than a hundred billion, you say you’re budgeting 1.3 trillion. Are you crazy? Then you give it all kinds of fanciful names then you now have the temerity to talk to me because we are playing politics. What insolence!
Details of the text message that led to Duke’s outburst are still unknown…
