2019: We’re Not Merging With SDP – ADP




The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has said that it did
not sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with

the Social Democratic Party (SDP) ahead of 2019
general elections.
The party stated this in a statement by its Director of
Media, Mr Kayode Jacob, in Abuja on Thursday,
debunking media reports to that effect.
It described the report as a ”sponsored falsehood,”
adding that it was disappointed by such report.
´´The National Chairman,Alhaji Yabagi Sani, wondered
why the SDP led by highly respected and disciplined
Nigerian, Chief Olu Falae, will descend so low to sponsor
and publish a deliberate defamatory report,´´ it said.
According to the party, the report is intended to injure
the ADP and gain an undeserved advantage ahead of
2019 general elections.
It, however, explained that when the ADP contacted
SDP National Secretary on the issue, it was informed
that the people who signed MoU with the party came
under a group and not as ADP.
´´We are therefore, shocked that the party still went
ahead to publish and circulate the news, apparently to
deceive gullible Nigerians and acquire undeserved
popularity.
´´We, however, want to believe that an overzealous SDP
official would have been responsible as we want to hold
that the highly-respected leadership of SDP will not want
to cut corners to attain popularity.

´´However, if any individual or group of persons had
succeeded in deceiving and defrauding the SDP that it is
representing ADP and signing MoU on its behalf, too bad
and unfortunate,´´ the statement said.
It stressed that ADP was standing strong and firm as the
most credible alternative and was working hard to deliver
a better government to Nigerians in 2019.
“The ADP has not signed any memorandum with any
political party or any group whatsoever.
´´The party is strong enough to provide the canopy
needed by all well-meaning Nigerians who desire a new
nation where promises are kept and destinies are fulfilled.
´´The ADP remains strong in the 36 states of the
federation and the FCT; we are fully set to contest the
2019 elections,´´ the statement said.
