Donald Duke imitates Obama as he officially declares for President.

Mr. Donald Duke, a former Governor of Cross River state had on Friday over the weekend declared his intention to run for the number one seat in the country.

Shortly after his declaration, the Presidential hopeful took to his twitter handle to appeal for support from Nigerians. His twitter post came with a beautifully designed poster where he imitated the dress code and posture associated with a former president of America, Barrack Obama.

Barrack Obama is popularly known for rolling up his sleeves which depicts readiness to work. Could it be that Duke is also sending across the message that he is prepared to work hard as he takes the nation to new dimensions just as he did in Cross River state?

It was also noticed that Duke edited his twitter profile to include 'husband' and 'father' just has Obama's. 

The pinned tweet from Duke which read  'You may have heard I'm running for President of Nigeria 2019. Do I have your support? #donaldduke2019'  as at press time had attracted over 13,000 engagement making the #Donaldduke the 5th most trending conversation on tweeter with well over 11,000 tweets.
