SDP presidential candidate Adewole Adebayo says he is confident of being a better president if elected to rule Nigeria in 2023.

Mr Adebayo stated this at the official inauguration of the party’s new National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday. He stated that when elected, he would deliver victory to Nigerians through sound medical care, security and education. 

“If you want to know if I will be a better president, look at the decisions that I have taken. Of all the moneybags, I have chosen a youth, a leader of change, a dynamic person, a banker, an economist and proven integrity, Yusuf Buhari as my running mate,” the party’s presidential standard bearer explained. “SDP has the young person as the national chairman who represents the future. I am telling Nigerians that the alternative you have been looking for is here. The excuse that you don’t have a choice is gone.”

Tanko Yakasai, the liaison officer to ex-President Shehu Shagari, urged the party leaders and members to go back to the grassroots and mobilise support for SDP and its candidates. 

Mr Yakasai, represented by the SDP gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa, Umar Ardo, advised the party to take advantage of the new Electoral Act 2022 to win elections for the party.

Mr Yakassai stated that the “2022 electoral act is an opportunity for the SDP to mobilise for the party.” 

He added, “There is no more room for rigging, and vote allocation have been tackled.” 

Meanwhile, the founding chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Olu Falae, says the party has what it takes to win the 2023 presidential and governorship elections. He said the SDP presidential flag bearer would emerge the winner.

He explained that when he decided to revive the party, people thought it was impossible, but today the party had grown in number and strength across the country.

“SDP is the only party with the right technology, philosophy and manifesto. We deserve to rule Nigeria, and by the grace of God, we will be there,” said Mr Falae. “We have a good presidential candidate in the person of Adewole Adebayo, who has not only demonstrated his knowledge of law but history, anthropology, architecture and other fields.”

He added, “We need someone with a broad mind and education like Adebayo to lead our country. The party may not have a governor today, but I have no doubt that SDP will be in Aso Rock and become governors in many states in 2023.”

He commended the party leadership for its achievements, urging them to continue to bring back those who left the party and new members to work together to win the 2023 general elections.
