4 days to 2019 elections, SDP boils; suspends Duke, Gana

2019 ELECTIONS: SDP loses out as names of Duke, Gana absent in INEC’s final list of candidates

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has suspended its two candidates who have been laying claim to the party’s presidential ticket; Jerry Gana, and Donald Duke over alleged anti-party activities.

The suspension is coming days after the party dumped Duke who was declared by the Appeal Court as the party’s presidential candidate to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari for the February 16 presidential elections.
