The opposition Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Adamawa State, has dismissed reported collapse of its structures into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 general election.
A statement by the organizing secretary of the party, Hon Aziz Jibrilla urged the general public to disregard the purported fusion of the party as no such thing ever happened.
“The attention of the leadership of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Adamawa State Chapter has been drawn to a claim that, the Party’s structure has been fused into PDP.
“If not for putting the records straight, there should be no need to respond to falsehood and dubious action aime to shortchange Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and his Party because the Organizer rented crowd to deceive his target which has been his stock in trade.
“As a political force to reckon with in the forth-coming 2023 General Elections, the action is nothing more than show of desperation by the opposition PDP to create confusion using few unpatriotic and unprincipled elements among many just to attract political point.
“The claim by Danjuma Chikel that, 22 State Party Executives and 17 Local Government Chairmen of our Party (SDP) is untrue as we remain intact and ready to wrestle power on the 11th March, as newly elected Government by Adamawa electorate.
“We therefore, call on our Party faithfuls and supporters to remain calm and focus in the task of canvassing for Votes in all nook and crannies of the State until victory is attained.
“We also appeal to the Adamawa electorate to disregard the claim with a view to Vote for Dr. Umar Ardo as the next Governor with other candidates under SDP so that the state can be rescued from bad governance,” the statement said.
