A former governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke is back in the presidential race following an appellate court ruling. The appeal court has declared Donald Duke presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP). Mr Duke had been declared as the presidential candidate of the party after the primary election held in October 2018 in which Mr Gana was also an aspirant. However, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, had on Friday, 14th December declared Jerry Gana, a former Nigerian Minister of Information, as the presidential candidate of the SDP.
This was after Mr Gana had instituted a case against the result in court, basing his case on the zoning and rotation formula of the party.
