A former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, has declared that he is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The ex-Governor maintained that the Coalition for Nigeria Movement, CNM, being championed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not a political party.
According to Duke, the Obasanjo coalition had members cutting across many political parties.
He spoke at public lecture organized by the Nigeria Movement for Positive Change, NPMC, in Lagos.
Duke pointed out that the coalition was only concerned with sensitizing Nigerians to rise up to the challenges facing the country.
The former Governor said, “Nigeria is like a dam, if that dam should burst, it would flood all of West Africa.
“Our population is more than half of West Africa and it is growing astronomically but our economic indices are not growing as fast, which is the challenge we have.
“As I speak to you, over three million people have registered with the coalition but it is not a political party.
“I am still a member of the PDP for instance; you can belong to any political party.
“All it is trying to do is similar to what NMPC is doing here to sensitize Nigerians to our present circumstance.”
