Ahead of the 16th February presidential and National Assembly elections, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has reiterated its support towards the decision of the National Working Committee (NEC) of the party to adopt All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
The Acting Deputy National Chairman (South), Dr. Olu Agunloye, stated this at a press conference held in Akure on Tuesday.
Agunloye revealed that the party was reorganizing itself in the country to be an alternative platform.
Though the party had adopted President Buhari for a reelection on Saturday, Agunloye noted that it is imperative to work for the successes of other SDP candidates vying for the National and state assembly elections across the country.
According to him, the vision and goals of the party are beyond endorsement of candidates for the 2019 general election but improving the gains of representative democracy in Nigeria.
His words, “SDP is to be strengthened beyond the February 16 election, what is very important for us at this critical period is building this party as a formidable force and alternative platform political for the future.
“We will maximize every opportunity at our disposal to ensuring that all the House of Assembly, senatorial and House of Representative candidates win the forthcoming elections across the Federation.”
Agunloye, who expressed unalloyed loyalty to the new Acting National Chairman, Prof. Tunde Adeniran, however urged the party members to work for the success of all SDP candidates at the poll.
Meanwhile, the party leadership has announced the suspension of the state secretary of the party, Dr. Sola Agboola, who was accused of anti-party activities and gross insubordination.
According to them, the supremacy of the party is sancrosanct and non-negotiable on the decision to adopt the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Buhari.
