The SDP is contesting the Saturday February 25th Presidential and National Assembly elections. It is not in any alliance with APC, PDP, Labour, or any other political party for the election.
In response to the very many calls that we have been inundated with by concerned members of our great party, the SDP across the country, as well as the general public, concerning the prevailing rumors of purported endorsement, stepping down of our Presidential Candidate or the party forming alliance with other political parties, it is hereby categorically stated and affirmed, that the SDP is contesting the Saturday February 25th, 2023 presidential and national assembly elections by standing firmly with, and strongly behind all it’s candidates at all levels of the elections.
This notice of disclaimer to the spurious and offensive claims by some desperate elements that our Presidential Candidate, Prince Adewole Adebayo has stepped down from the election, and that the SDP has endorsed or formed alliance with other political party is false.
There is no iota of truth in the various claims making the rounds in those regards. Going by this unpleasant development.of deliberately selling falsehood to the Nigerian public, it has become crystal clear that the nation is dealing with a group of recklessly desperate politicians who will stop at nothing to impose themselves on the electorate through their trademark of deception and propaganda which is what has led the country to her present sorry state of affairs.
For the avoidance of doubt, and to emphasize that we are still very much in the race, it is important to state that the SDP Presidential Candidate was present and not in anyway hidden in the crowd yesterday, in Abuja, at the signing of the second peace accord organized by National Peace Committee for all presidential candidates. He has gone round the length and breadth of the country, engaging in a most uniquely appealing way, with all segments of the Nigerian electorate. He’s therefore in a very comfortable position of optimism, going into the Saturday election.
All our national assembly Candidates have also vigorously transversed their various constituencies, delivering to the the people, their messages of hope and were well and warmly received, and are therefore well-primed to come out with successful outcomes on Saturday.
All SDP Members across the country and the general public are therefore, by this notice, enjoined to disregard the fallacious claims that are been mischievously sold out to deceive and confuse out Members and the Nigerian electorate at large.
In conclusion, we urge them to remain steadfast in their faith in the refreshing hope that the SDP and it’s Candidates represent and troop out in their numbers to cast their votes for the SDP for a better Nigeria.
