Bakare said that rather than for the leadership of the Party  to carry out the judgment of an FCT High Court, Abuja which recognised Professor Gana as the Party’s authentic Candidate, its leadership had been using delay tactics in order to deny him the opportunity.

“we demand that our Revered National Chairman, Chief Olu Falae, should submit without delay, Professor Jerry Gana’s details to INEC as requested. That Alhaji Shehu Gabam stop forthwith from further parading himself as the Party’s National Secretary as he is blatantly contravening Party’s Constitution as aforesaid.

Bakare further said that following the initial adoption of His Excellency,Governor Donald Duke on the 6th October, 2018 as the Party’s Presidential Candidate through a manipulated primary, SDP has known no peace.
