The Social Democratic Party (SDP), has named a new running mate for its 2019 Presidential candidate, Donald Duke.

 

This comes following the withdrawal of Mohammed Kunaid, Duke’s original running mate.

Musa Gabam, who is also the National Secretary of the party, replaces Junaid, the party announced on Thursday, December 13.

Alfa Mohammed, SDP national publicity secretary, said the substitution was done long ago.

According to him, Junaid’s substitution was subjected to deliberation at the party’s leadership level which he was a member. Mohammed said the consensus was that Junaid should step down as running mate for strategic reasons.

His words:

“Hence, as a genuine party man, he voluntarily stepped down and thereafter signed all the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forms required to perfect the substitution process.

He remains one of our highly respected leaders the party is proud to have. Meanwhile, the substitution which was done long ago now has Shehu Musa Gabam from the North East as our vice presidential candidate” he said.
