Social Democratic Party (SDP) has said it will be a political rallying point for all Nigerians in 2019.
The Interim National Secretary of the party, Shehu Musa Gabam disclosed this while speaking to journalists in Bauchi on Monday.
He said the main objective of the party was to give Nigerians what the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) failed to give in the last 18 years.
According to him, the party is holding wider consultations and putting the required structures across Nigeria and will give both the PDP and the APC a run for their money in the 2019 elections.
Gabam noted that the PDP and the ruling APC have failed Nigerians adding that while the ruling APC has failed to fulfil its campaign promises it made to Nigerians, the PDP has been destroyed and is irredeemable.
The SDP scribe said that the party is also not deterred by President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to re-contest in 2019 saying that the declaration was an internal affair of the APC.
“The declaration of the president was an internal affair of the APC and it was his right as the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Nobody can deny him to seek the office. It is not about declaring to seek re-election; it was about defending why he wanted to seek re-election.
“Virtually all the propaganda that emanated from the APC which led to the merger had failed. There is nothing that they said they will fulfil in their campaign that they have fulfilled. They are slowly bringing up another propaganda and I believe Nigerians are wiser," he said.
