Count Us Out Of Tinubu's Adoption. Peter Obi Is Our Presidential Candidate - SDP


The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has refuted a reported alliance with Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the polls.

This clarification was contained in a press release issued on Wednesday, and signed by Hon Saleh Dass, the SDP National Secretary.

Titled “SDP: Count Us Out Of Tinubu‘s Adoption. Peter Obi Is Our Presidential Candidate,” the party clarified the confusion which arose as a result of a faction led by Chief Supo Shonibare who reportedly endorsed Tinubu.

The attention of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) led by Chief Supo Shonibare has been brought to a declaration by some of the Leaders of SDP in Oyo State, adopting Mr Seyi Makinde as an alliance joint candidate.

 The National Working Committee had directed that since the court action to determine the legitimate leadership of SDP and the legitimate constitution of the Party was still pending; after almost four years of litigation,  that states were at liberty to enter into alliances for the purpose of the elections in February & March with an opposition Party.

However, those electing to align with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have taken a position that is contrary to this resolve.

The NWC of SDP has constituted a five-member committee with Senator Ebenezer Ikeyina as Chairman, Mallam Nasiru N'Abba, Mr Kelvin Damara, Mrs Y. Nolan  & Mrs Adenike Olujembola as Secretary.

The Committee is to meet and report the veracity of the report on the  allegation that some leaders of the SDP in Oyo are supporting the APC Presidential Candidate, contrary to the directive of the Party.
