​​Ogun SDP denies merger plan with PDP

The Social Democratic Party, SDP, Ogun State Chapter, on Sunday declared that it has no plan to go into an alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as being speculated.

The governorship candidate of the party, Akin Odunsi, accompanied by his running mate, Segun Adesegun, and the party chairman, Olu Agemo, made this clear at a press conference held at Iwe-Iroyin, Press Centre, Abeokuta.

Mr. Odunsi said the SDP is a disciplined political party and will not have anything to do with the PDP.

Mr. Odunsi, who expressed optimism that his party will win the governorship and assembly elections convincingly on Saturday, said the rumoured merger with the PDP was sponsored against the party.

He said SDP was capable to go to the poll all alone.

“Today, we wish to put the record straight on some wicked news items that rented the airwaves two days ago. It has come to our notice that some unscrupulous elements are out to damage our party’s credibility, image and integrity, hence, this press briefing,” Mr. Odunsi said.

“I state categorically and emphatically that our party has neither the intention nor plan to merge with any political party. So there is no iota of truth in the damaging news item which we in SDP describe as malicious, unfounded, baseless and a wild imagination which could only have existed in the authors mind,” he said.

In his remark, the chairman of the party, Olu Agemo, said the party was borne out of principles and ideology and would welcome people of like minds to work in the interest of the party.
