Adamawa State chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), has distanced itself from the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
The Chairman of Adamawa State chapter of the party, John K Mova at a press conference in Yola said:
“I want to make it clear that Adamawa state chapter of SDP is not part of the endorsement.”
He noted that the state chapter deemed it fit to adopt the position due to its respect for rule of law and the fact that they cant allow the difference between Gerry Gana and Donald Duke to put the state chapter of the party into jeopardy.
Mova who expressed optimism over the electoral victory of the party added that with the massive goodwill garnered by the party across the state, victory for them is certain come March 2, 2019.
“We have a clear chance of winning the election since election will be determined by Adamawa citizens and we have overwhelming support,” he said.
He urged the people to be wary of the antics of some suspended members of the party who are purportedly giving misleading information in respect of the purported endorsement adding that the true position is the one adopted by his group.
Mova noted that one Danjuma Chikale and six suspended members are currently passing misleading information approving the purported endorsement adding that Chikale has no right to stand or speak on behalf of the party.
