The Borno and Yobe states working committees of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, have endorsed the candidature of President Muhammadu Buhari for the Saturday’s presidential election.
The duo chapters of the SDP stated this through a statement issued by their respective chapter chairmen, Abba Modu and Bello Abdullahi, for Borno and Yobe state respectively.
“Borno State SDP wishes to inform the general public especially our supporters and members that we are in full support of the NEC’s decision to endorse APC presidential candidate. President Muhammadu Buhari, in the forthcoming presidential election,” it said.
The statement further said the decision of the national secretariat of the SDP was in the best interest of “our people here in Borno State.”
The chairmen, therefore, called on all members of the SDP to vote for President Buhari.
“The Social Democratic Party, SDP, Yobe State Chapter is pleased to announce our full support of the NEC’s decision to endorse APC presidential candidate President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming Presidential election,” he said.
However, the Borno and Yobe state chapters of the SDP noted that the endorsement is only for the presidential election, saying: “We want all our Candidates in the state to be rest assured that we will continue to push for the success of all other SDP contested positions.
“We wish to congratulate the new Acting National chairman of our great party, Prof. Tunde Adeniran, and our National Secretary, Shehu Gabam. May God continue to increase them both in wisdom and health,” they said.
