“With utmost humility and all sense of responsibility,the entire Arewa Community which encompasses all Northerners in Ogun State,after an adequate consultation and diplomatic deliberation has finally reach an unanimous conciliation of endorsing the leadership structure of Social Democratic Party for the forthcoming election,” Mr. Sanni said.
“With our heart full of joy and happiness, we wholeheartedly pledge our absolute support for our great, passionate and progressives candidates of the party.”
