Former Governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke has described Nigerian politicians as “jobbers and padders.”

Duke said this in Abuja on Wednesday, August 10, while speaking at a programme organised by the Kukah centre, themed ‘From activism to political power: the challenges of democratic governance in Nigeria.’

He criticised the 'change' mantra of the President Muhammad Buhari administration, saying "time will tell".

Duke said: “Sadly, politicians in our society are jobbers and padders and apply the word change.

“As a member of the PDP or what is left of it, the change they do me one kind. So change is not always necessarily the way to go, as for the change wey we dey so. Only time will tell.”

According to him, the confusion for activists who get into political office is between the theories espoused and the reality on ground.
