He lauded him for his immense contributions to the expansion and improvement of Cross River, saying that key infrastructure like Obudu Cattle Ranch and Tinapa Business Resort had been the signature tasks of his administration.

He notably recommended the previous governor for returning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the place he was elected governor at a younger age of 38.

Okowa stated that Duke’s efforts at growing Cross River had been great and that his visions for the event of the state had been outstanding.

According to him, Duke demonstrated immense braveness and dedication when he served as governor of the state at such younger age.

“Your Excellency, your selfless and impressive performance as Governor of Cross River has already distinguished you as an emerging great nationalist in the political firmament of our great nation.

“At a very young age of 38 you were elected governor making you one of the youngest governors in Nigeria’s history.

“Since leaving office in 2007, you have remained a great figure and an inspirational leader for many youths in your home state and across the country,” he stated.

“On behalf of my family, the government and the people of Delta, I congratulate an illustrious statesman, a consummate politician and a perfect gentleman, Mr Donald Duke, on his 60th birth anniversary.

“On this auspicious occasion in your life, I join your family, friends and well-wishers to thank Almighty God for His benevolence upon your life,” Okowa added.
