SDP Reveals Why Mohammed Junaid Stepped Down As Its Vice Presidential Candidate

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has announced Shehu Musa Gabam, who is also the national secretary of the party as running mate of Donald Duke, its 2019 presidential candidate.

Gabam, replaces Mohammed Junaid, who as earlier reported by Naija News, stepped down because of the “many hassles of the SDP.”

He said he also stepped down as the deputy national chairman of the SDP.

However, Alfa Mohammed, SDP national publicity secretary, said on Thursday that the substitution was done long ago.

He further revealed that the party reached a consensus that Junaid should step down as the running mate for strategic reasons.

According to Mohammed, Junaid himself was part of the deliberations by the party’s leadership that took the decision.

“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.
