Former Cross Rivers State governor, Donald Duke has recounted a tale of how his wife, Onarie, with whom he has two daughters, once called him a drunk.
Duke said it happened when he made love advances to her while they were both undergraduates at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
The former presidential aspiration told Punchng.com: “I was campaigning for Social Secretary in 1980 and she was trying to register in the Faculty of Law. So, while on the campaign trail I saw her, I was with a friend of mine called Col. Sam Amadu, he is retired now from military, he was my campaign manager even though he was also running for Sports Secretary. I looked at him and I said, you see that lady going over there, that’s my next campaign. She was wearing a light yellow pair of trousers and a yellow and pink horizontally striped shirt which she tied around her navel, I remember it like yesterday. At that time she appeared very tall, indeed we used to wear the same trousers for a very long time. After the campaigns, we became friends and the first time I asked her out she looked at me and said are you drunk, we are friends, how can I go out with you? The rest is history as they would say.”
