The Chairman of Social Democratic Party (SDP) Johan Muva, has debunked the party’s adoption of unity candidates, as allegedly been reported by some national dailies in Adamawa state.
Muva said its governorship candidate, Chief Emmanuel Bello, will contest in the governorship election next year, as the party is confident of winning the 2019 elections in the state.
In a statement made available in Yola on Friday, the chairman noted that, the self-acclaimed spokesman of a non-existent coalition of political party, is neither a chieftain nor member of SDP in the state.
“I did not participate in any negotiation with any party in the state.
“As the chairman of the SDP in Adamawa State, I state emphatically that there is no truth in that claim and media report. The SDP has no plan of joining any other party.
“A self-appointed spokesman for a non-existent’ Coalition of Political Parties and the media report in question quoted, was not known to the SDP and so could not speak for the SDP, more so as the party had competent hands to speak for it.
“At best this claim has no place in the contemplation of the SDP and should be consigned to the political dustbin of the state.”
He urging members of the party and supporters to regard the ‘fictitious and malicious’ publication as a desperate move by ‘rejected politicians and parties’ to cause confusion, adding the dwindling popularity of their candidates has lost supports of the masses.
He said the SDP is proud of the rising popularity of its candidate, Emmanuel Bello, and its preference of him as the flag bearer of the party for the 2019 governorship election remains sacrosanct.
