As handsome and eloquent as he is, Donald Duke has no chance in 2019 – Ben Bruce

Senator Ben Murray Bruce has said that the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party(PDP), Donald Duke can never win next year’s presidential election, no matter how handsome and eloquent he is.

This was in reaction to a video shared by veteran musician, and Human Rights activist, Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy. In the video, the former Cross Rivers state governor, during a chat on Arise TV, was heard saying no one can do well under the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) because of the stakeholders there.

The former governor in the video said he knows the PDP very well, having been a member for many years – he noted that, even if he had emerged as the former ruling party’s presidential candidate, he wouldn’t do well, because the structure of the party, encourages corruption.

Ben Bruce in reaction to the video said that the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar remains the only option for 2019, if Nigerians want President Muhammadu Buhari out of office.

He wrote:


You and I know that as handsome and eloquent as he is, Donald Duke has no chance in 2019. What you‘re doing is strategically unwise. I mean no disrespect to either you or Mr. Duke, but if you truly want Buhari gone, Atiku is the ONLY choice.


  1. It is a pity on Nigeria, though Duke and his likes have no chance against Buhari. After Atiku must have been roundly defeated in 2019, money bag politicians should step aside and allow credible Nigerians who abound in this country like Osinbajo, Duke, Ribadu, Obi, Ezekwesili etc. to take Nigeria to a higher level. That is the way forward so that Nigeria’ s prospects for greatness can be unlocked, harnessed and used to uplift the lives of the people.
