BREAKING: SDP scribe, Gabam, becomes Duke’s presidential running mate



The Social Democratic Party has formalised the substitution of its 2019 Presidential Candidate’ s running mate , Dr . Mohammed Junaid, with Mr . Shehu Musa Gabam , who is also the National Secretary of the party .
SDP National Publicity Secretary , Alfa Mohammed , who gave the confirmation on Thursday in Abuja , said that the substitution was done long ago .

He said that Junaid ’ s substitution was subjected to deliberation at the party’ s leadership level which he was a member .

Mohammed said the consensus was that Junaid should step down as running mate to the SDP Presidential Candidate, Donald Duke , for strategic reasons .

“ Hence , as a genuine party man, he voluntarily stepped down and thereafter signed all the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC ) forms required to perfect the substitution process .

“ He remains one of our highly respected leaders the party is proud to have.

“ Meanwhile , the substitution which was done long ago now has Shehu Musa Gabam from the North East as our vice presidential candidate , ” he said .
