Former Information Minister Jerry Gana stated that he is a member of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), which will win the upcoming presidential election in 2019, and will not work with former Cross River Governor Donald Duke.
At the opening of the SWIFT campaign, Ghana announced that the elected SDP candidate would not want to choose a duke partner if he wanted to win the election.
The development is following the judgment of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT), high Court in Maitama a week ago declaring Jerry Gana, the winner of the presidential primary election of the SDP conducted on October 6 this year.
The party had declared a former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, winner of the election and its flag bearer for the 2019 presidential election.
Duke at the primary polled 812 votes, while Gana had 611.
Gana who was not satisfied with the outcome of the primary went to court seeking to be declared the winner in line with the zoning and rotation formula of the party’s constitution.
He promised to unity Nigeria and also obey the rule of law if he wins the presidential election in 2019.
His words: “I do not mind at all but, the party will definitely want a strategy, that is a winning strategy. Let us be very realistic the South South have just concluded a turn of the presidency during former President Goodluck Jonathan, if Nigerians are to be real they will know that it is too soon to have a presidential candidate running for an election from that zone.
