Donald Duke, the presidential candidate for Social Democratic Party (SDP) has substituted his running mate, Mohammed Junaid with Shehu Musa Gabam, who is also the national secretary of the party.
Alfa Mohammed, SDP national publicity secretary, said the substitution was for strategic reasons.
“Hence, as a genuine party man, he voluntarily stepped down and thereafter signed all the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forms required to perfect the substitution process,” he said.
“He remains one of our highly respected leaders the party is proud to have.
“Meanwhile, the substitution which was done long ago now has Shehu Musa Gabam from the North East as our vice presidential candidate.”
