The Social Democratic Party (SDP) is in advanced talks with some serving governors and over 60 senators, the national secretary of the party, Malam Shehu Gabam has said.
Gabam also warned against truncating the nation’s democracy, noting that the recent invasion of the Senate by some thugs who went away with its made was a bad omen for the country.
While he declined to mention the names of governors and federal lawmakers, the national scribe of SDP said the party is also discussing with high profile personalities across the country.
He said “we are interfacing with a lot of senators, I won’t call names. But we are interfacing with over 60 senators. We are also interfacing with a lot of governors as well as high profile personalities. The discussion has reached advanced stage and the processes are on. We have provided hope just the way we restored democracy in 1999 when all hopes were lost”.
While reacting to the recent invasion of the Senate and stealing of the mace by some thugs, he said the action of the hoodlums who were led in by a lawmaker remains a great disservice to the country and an attempt to truncate its democracy.
He however added that the party will win the Ekiti and Osun governorship elections.
