Social Democratic Party(SDP) have after a brief meeting today adopted the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress(APC), Muhammadu Buhari, as their flag bearer in the forthcoming election slated for nextweek Saturday. They party have now ditched their former flag bearer, Donald Duke.
Recall that Duke left PDP in 2018 when it became obvious that he was not going to win their presidential ticket and joined the SDP with a view to achieving his dreams.
The decision of the third force political party(SDP) have sparked reactions from Nigerians
What they are saying:
You see why we don't rate these third force parties at the moment? Oby's party is supporting Buhari. Donald Duke's party is supporting Buhari. Trust me, this was the plan all along. With Nigeria, pragmatism is pays better than Idealism.

Oh what a time to remember @adeyanjudeji – “the man who saw tomorrow”.
Deji said it, that most of the third force mushroom parties are working for PMB.
Today Deji is vindicated.
