SDP Faction Declares Support For Peter Obi

The Social Democratic Party (SDP)’s faction led by Chief Supo Shonibare has declared support for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, ahead of the Saturday’s elections.

The decision was reached at party’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting held in Abuja, on Wednesday, the 22nd of February, 2023.

Chief Supo Shonibare and Hon Saleh Dass who are the National Chairman and National Secretary of one of the factions of the SDP respectively, in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, said the NWC also deliberated on the report of the Senator Ebenezer Ikeyina committee investigating the allegation that some of its leaders from Oyo State who issued a statement declaring support for a candidate other than the Labour Party’s Mr. Peter Obi.

“The NWC has accepted and adopted the disciplinary action recommended by the Ikeyina Committee and suspended the leaders involved.

“Should they object to this decision, they have the right to appeal to the NWC, through the National Secretary of the party.

“With the presidential elections only a couple of days away, the NWC again considered its position on which candidate best demonstrates an ability to engender a stable polity, as well as provide prudent economic management of our nation’s resources.

“Judicious consideration was given to the contending candidates, especially with regard to which best bears testament to the goal of rotation of the office of the president and the need to continue to encourage inclusivity in the polity.

“Giving consideration to both internal and external factors, and our earlier decision to support an opposition party candidate in the Presidential elections, the SDP reaffirms its support for Mr. Peter Obi and Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed Datti in their bid for the Presidency and Vice Presidency respectively.

“The party therefore enjoins its members and all Nigerians desirous of a stable, inclusive and forward-leaning polity to come out en masse to vote for the Labour Party in the Presidential elections scheduled for Saturday, February 25th, 2023”, the statement said.
