The Social Democratic Party has announced its withdrawal from the February 16, presidential election and adopts the All Progressive Congress candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, for the poll.
This was part of the resolutions of the National Executive Committee meeting of the party in Abuja on Thursday.
According to the NEC, “we cannot campaign, we cannot do anything because of the protracted legal issue and we feel that it is impeccable to technically withdraw from the presidential election.
It added: “We want to focus on the National Assembly, Governorship and State House of Assemblies election for which we have fielded candidates across the country.
“We are therefore adopting the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, as our preferred candidate for the Feb. 16 election.”
