Donald Duke`s SDP And CUPP Part Ways


Social Democratic Party (SDP), has finally pulled out of the Coalition of United Political Parties, (CUPP), a group of over 45 opposition political parties.

Former governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke who is the presidential candidate in the upcoming general elections, will begin its campaign on December 19, 2018.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alpha Mohammed, in a brief statement, Tuesday morning, in Abuja, announcing the development, did not however give reason why the party pulled out. In the statement, the party’s scribe promised releasing a detailed statement on the issue later in the day.

The brief declaration read:”SDP pulls out of CUPP, kick-starts campaign on 19th December…: Details later” Recall that shortly after the coalition of the opposition political parties issued statement, announcing the adoption of former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), as its consensus candidate for the 2019 poll last week.

The SDP came out to distance itself from the union, claiming it had never taken any step to that effect.

The declaration which was released by Alpha Mohammed, following the CUPP’s action and titled:”SDP NWC to meet, issue statement on CUPP endorsement of Atiku next week”, read:

“The attention of our great party, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has been drawn to a statement issued Wednesday by the National Spokesperson for the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere to the effect that the coalition had endorsed the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as consensus candidate of the opposition for 2019 presidential election.

“Be that as it may, we want to enjoin the general public, SDP faithful’s, especially all our candidates to carry on with their campaigns effectively, irrespective of the development. “We assure you that the SDP National Working Committee (NWC) will meet and issue appropriate statement on the matter next week.”
