Ahead of the 2023 elections, the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Prince Adewole Adebayo, has said the party will not merge with any other political party despite being seen as an underdog.
Briefing newsmen yesterday Adebayo said, “We are underdogs but we will never enter into an alliance or merge with any other party in the current scheme of things.”
He said that having won a previous presidential election that was annulled in 1993, the party had come a long way and would help Nigeria out of its current economic, political and social problems.
He urged Nigerians to support the party.
Adebayo also said he would declare his assets by October even if no other presidential candidate would do that.
He disclosed that he approached a non-governmental organisation, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), to engage other presidential candidates on the matter, but none had taken up the challenge.
“I am doing a lot of things differently already. I will campaign differently because that’s under my control. I am campaigning based on issues,” he said.
