According to a statement issued on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alfa Mohammed, the decision was taken at a meeting of the party’s NWC presided over by its national chairman, Chief Supo Shonibare, in Abuja.

Mohammed quoted Shonibare as commending the SDP governorship candidate in the state, Chief Bolaji Ayorinde, for his decision to step down for the joint candidate of opposition parties in the state.

He said from what he knew of Makinde while he was in the SDP, he was the best candidate the people of the state desired at this critical period.
