The embattled former Minister of Information, Professor Jerry Gana has disclosed that he is in the Social Democratic Party (SDP), to win the forthcoming 2019 presidential election and not to be running mate to former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke.
Gana, at the unveiling of his campaign programme tagged ‘SWIFT’ today said the leadership of SDP would not want to take the decision of him accepting to become running mate to Duke, if the party wants to win election.
The development is following the judgment of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT), high Court in Maitama a week ago declaring Jerry Gana, the winner of the presidential primary election of the SDP conducted on October 6 this year. The party had declared a former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, winner of the election and its flag bearer for the 2019 presidential election.
Gana who was not satisfied with the outcome of the primary went to court seeking to be declared the winner in line with the zoning and rotation formula of the party’s constitution. He promised to unify Nigeria and also obey the rule of law if he wins the presidential election in 2019.
