The party made the decision on Thursday during its national executive council meeting in Abuja, though they explained that the adoption does not herald a merger with the APC.

Prior to the development, Donald Duke, former governor of Cross River, was the flag bearer of the SDP.

Duke was declared the presidential candidate of the party in January following a ruling by the court of appeal in Abuja which set aside the judgment of an Abuja high court declaring Jerry Gana, former information minister, as the party’s presidential flagbearer.

  1. This is a good news, SDP has taken a right decision since it knows Donal Duke can’t go anywhere, why wasting their votes then? It is an added advantage to APC, though PMB will be reelected with or without any political party(s) join it, its PDP that needs endorsement everywhere. Congratulations in advance Mr. PMB

  2. Why am i not surprised! Donald Duke as good a governor as you were, you should not kill your political future with foolishness. After GEJ, who told you that northern Nigeria will allow a minority to go near Aso rock in the next 40yrs? Not on your life. The GEJ issue was just an act of God. They wont allow it again. You for remain in PDP and be relevant in South south. Now where do you belong now?

    • If choices of who to rule is for the northeners to decide alone, pls why are the masses wasting efforts on PVCs and all. We should sleep in our houses then. Stop this myopic way of thinking….PDP ,APC must not be the ruling party, if we want the masses can change it.

  3. Na so Nigeria and politicians, chose Duke dump buhari now choose buhari don’t Duke there is God.

  4. Nigerians do not really know what they want,when suffering they will make noise Oya make a change they still go back

  5. Woooow,I thought SDP had it all worked out after the court ruling so why ask Uncle Donald to chill out,its not nice afterall he has every right to contest
    Pres.Buhari shouldnt be sleeping now,He should be awake with his legs in cold water&sipping coffee because Folks are hungry,annoyed,bitter
