2019: SDP Throws Presidential Ticket Open To Nigerians
If you think you have what it takes to be Nigeria's president irrespective of region, the Social Democratic Party has an offer you may want to consider.
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has said its presidential ticket is not zoned to any part of the country but open to all eligible Nigerians.
This is according to the Deputy National Chairman of the party, Abdul Isiaq.
Isiaq, who spoke recently when he received former governor of Cross River and a presidential aspirant, Donald Duke, he said the ticket could go to any capable person from any part of the country, saying “the party gives Nigerians the constitutional right to test their popularity.
“People make mistake thinking that the decision of the party in power will affect every other political party. SDP is an open-door party. It is about mobilisation and canvases. Whoever the party chooses as candidate, so shall it be’’.
He welcomed Duke to SDP, saying it is a party with committed members.
In his remarks, Duke said that he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where he had been a member for 20 years because the party had lost its values and now a shadow of itself.
“The PDP we joined in 1998 is certainly not the same party that is in place today. When the former President of the country walked away from the party, you should know there is problem somewhere.
"PDP is the first truly national party, but over the years, you will see that it lost that and became a shadow of itself,” he said.
Duke said that he also left PDP to SDP because the nation is seeking for rebirth and most Nigerians were seeking something different and better.
