The founder of KAFTAN Television group, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has emerged as the Social Democratic Party candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Adebayo scored 1,526 votes at the party’s National Convention on Wednesday in Abuja to emerge as the party standard bearer, defeating the only co-contestant, Ms. Khadija Lamidi, who polled 83 votes.
The Convention Returning Officer, Umar Ardo, put the total votes cast at 1,653; valid votes were 1,609 while invalid votes were 44.
In his acceptance speech, 54-year-old Adebayo, also a lawyer, said his emergence indicated that it was the turn of Nigerian masses to take over power in 2023.
Adebayo pledged that the SDP would give the ruling party All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party a ‘good fight’ in the 2023 general elections.
“We will campaign to every household, every polling unit, every ward, every local government, every state, every zone and the entire country.
“We will come out and show to Nigerians that food, water, electricity, housing, education and medical care are not prayer points,” Adebayo said.
He urged Nigerians to join the SDP, register with INEC to vote, open their minds, tell others about SDP and vote out bad leaders in 2023.
The SDP National Chairman, Alhaji Shehu Gabam, encouraged those who participated in the election to be part of the campaign, saying it was a joint project.
He said that the party would change the face and character of governance in Nigeria, if given a chance to rule in 2023.
Gabam added that it was time for the country to get it right in 2023 general elections.
