We’re Not Bothered By Buhari’s 2019 Ambition – SDP

Bauchi – Shehu Musa Gabam, the Interim National Secretary of Social Democratic Party (SDP), has declared that the party was not shaken by the recent declaration of intention to re-contest the presidency come 2019 by President Muhammadu Buhari under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Gabam said that the party would soon become the rallying point for Nigerian politicians thereby emerging as the party to beat come 2019 general elections.

He stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Bauchi Monday.

He said that from all indications Nigerians have come to realise that both the PDP and the ruling APC have failed and therefore need a different platform to repair the country.

The SDP scribe said that the party was not in any way bothered about the ambition of President Muhammadu Buhari to recontest in 2019 but is worried that the APC has failed Nigerians woefully as not a single of its campaign promises had been fulfilled in the last three years.

While lamenting the current insecurity in the country following the inability of the ruling APC, Gabam further said that the economic situation in the country was not giving Nigerians any hope of survival but assured that the SDP would address all the issues when it finally wrestles power from the APC in 2019.

He added that with the irredeemable posture of the PDP coupled with the failure of the ruling APC, the SDP has a better chance to put things right come 2019  and called on Nigerians to rally round the party.

He stated further that, “the SDP is an old wine that is coming back in a new bottle in order to attract attention of the people. You know that the old wine is better than the new one but it just need to be repackaged in order to make it more attractive to the people.”

Gabam assured that very soon the SDP structure at all levels would be put in place so that it would be able to start political activities in full swing.

He added that the party would not in any way impose leadership on the people, no matter the temptation to do so.
