The former governor of Cross River State Donald Duke, has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Chairman of the PDP Caretaker Committee in the state, Effiok Cobham, confirmed the ex-governor’s return to the party at a press briefing held on Wednesday in Calabar.

Duke, who ruled Cross River from 1999 to 2007, dumped the PDP for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) ahead of the 2019 presidential election.
