2019: SDP Vice Presidential Running Mate Steps Down

The running mate to Donald Duke, Social Democratic Party Presidentisl Candidate for 2019 election, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has stepped down from the race.

A former Federal lawmaker Junaid, who is one of the fiercest critics of President Muhammadu Buhari, during an interview said that he decided to step down because of the “many hassles of the SDP.”

He said he also stepped down as the deputy national chairman of the SDP and had written letters to the chairman of the party, Chief Olu Falae; and Duke.

Junaid said, “It is true. I stepped down a while ago because of the many hassles.

“I also resigned as deputy national chairman. I have written to Chief Olu Falae and Mr. Donald Duke. However, I have not resigned from the party.”

When asked if he would be supporting President Muhammadu Buhari to ‘take Nigeria to the next level’, Junaid laughingly responded, “You know I will never do such.”
