As the 2023 elections draw near, Rufus Aiyenigba, the National Publicity Secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), has asked the public to ignore Alfa Mohammed who claims he is the spokesman of the party.
POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Mohammed had said no serious party will ever turn down an opportunity to have the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election, Bola Tinubu, as its flagbearer.
According to him, he would not be surprised if the largest body of the SDP decides in near future to adopt Tinubu for president.
But Aiyenigba, in a statement on Monday, obtained by this newspaper, said Mohammed ceased to be a member of the SDP since 2019.
“It is nothing but an attention-seeking shenanigan on the part of Alhaji Alfa Mohammed the writer, who not only lacks the authority to issue the statement, but is not known to our great party, and INEC the regulatory body of political parties in Nigeria as a national officer of the party,” Aiyenigba’s statement reads in part.
