SDP Expels Jerry Gana, Suspends Donald Duke
The Social Democratic Party, SDP, has expelled Professor Jerry Gana and its Acting National Chairman Supo Shonibare with immediate effect.
The party, which endorsed President Mohammadu Buhari for a second term last week, also suspended its Presidential candidate Donald Duke, accusing him of being critical of the party and disrespecting it.
SDP’s Director of Media and Publicity, Yemi Akinbode, announced this at a news briefing in Abuja.
Akinbode said Gana and Shonibare were expelled for engaging in anti-party activities. While Shonibare was accused of being the arrowhead of a splinter group, Gana was accused of setting up a parallel National Executive Committee in the party.
