According to Dr. Junaid Mohammed, he had to step down because of the “many hassles of the SDP.” He told Punch;

“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.”

Following the resignation of Donald Duke’s running mate who also stepped down as the deputy national chairman of the SDP,  the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has formalised the substitution of its 2019 Presidential Candidate’s running mate.

He was replaced with Alhaji Shehu Musa Gabam, who is the National Secretary of the party. SDP National Publicity Secretary, Alfa Mohammed, who gave the confirmation to NAN on Thursday in Abuja, said that the substitution was done long ago. However, Alfa said that Junaid’s substitution was subjected to deliberation at the party’s leadership level.
