SDP denies adopting Bola Tinubu, Seyi Makinde as her candidate says Peter Obi is our candidate’
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has denied endorsing All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate and Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde in advance of the general election.
Wednesday’s statement by the National Secretary, Saleh Dass, provided the clarification.
Dass recalled that the National Working Committee (NWC) only provided advice to state chapters due to the ongoing legal dispute over the leadership’s legitimate constitution.
In accordance with the directive, they were permitted to form alliances “with an opposition party” for the February and March elections.
Dass stated that those who decided to align with the ruling APC and the opposition PDP in Oyo violated the SDP’s resolution.
The NWC has established a five-member committee under the leadership of Senator Ebenezer Ikeyina, the secretary announced.
Members include Mallam Nasiru N’Abba, Mr. Kelvin Damara, and Mrs. Y. Nolan, while Mrs. Adenike Olujembola will serve as Secretary.
The committee will meet to discuss reports that some SDP leaders in Oyo and elsewhere are supporting Tinbu and Makinde “against party directives.”
