2019: I Won't Criminalize Gay Nigerians - Presidential Aspirant Donald Duke

Donald Duke
Donald Duke has revealed he is ready to work with a gay person as far as he can offer quality services to his team. 
Former Cross River State governor, Donald Duke has said he won’t criminalize gay Nigerians if he is President.
He made this known in a recent interview with Falz and Laila on the viral show ‘On The Couch’ saying;
‘I think we are an under-performing and under-achieving nation and the basis of our problem is poor leadership’.
On the issue of the highly contentious special anti robbery squad (SARS) and if he would scrap the agency, the presidential aspirant said categorially, “Of course I would. Because I do not subscribe to the force where people carry arms and they’re not in uniform.”
Donald Duke went on to bring up the issue of LGBT rights in Nigeria saying;
“I don’t understand the emotional feelings a gay person would have toward someone of their s*xuality. I don’t understand it. But I would not criminalise them. I would ensure that they have the protection of the law. But if they want to exhibit their s*xuality, then that’s an affront on the current norms of society.”
“Can you have a gay person in your cabinet?” Laila asked. “His s*xuality is private to him,” the former governor answered.
"I don’t want to know if he’s gay. It’s not my business. My business is if he can perform the assignment that he’s been assigned.” he added.
