Barely four months to the Presidential election and just when campaingns have started in earnest, running mate to Donald Duke, the Presidential candidate of Social Democratic Party, Junaid Mohammed has dropped out.
The Second Republic lawmaker revealed on Thursday, December 13, 2018 that he made the decision due to ‘many hassles’ in the party.
“It is true. I stepped down a while ago because of the many hassles,” he said.
He noted that he also resigned as the SDP’s deputy national chairman and has notified both Duke and the party’s national chairman, Chief Olu Falae, about his decision.
Mohammed’s decision is bound to be a setback for Duke’s presidential campaign after the party announced on Tuesday, December 11 that its campaign will commence next week.
