A former Minister of Education, Tunde Adeniran, has explained why he left the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with his supporters to join the Social Democratic Party, SDP.

Adeniran also said Prof. Jerry Gana had agreed to join him in the SDP.

Both Adeniran and Gana were members of the Board of Trustees of the main opposition party before their defection to the SDP.

Adeniran was a PDP national chairmanship candidate in the December 9 convention of the party, and Prof Gana was one of his staunch supporters.

Speaking in Abuja on Saturday, Adeniran said he decided to dump PDP because of impunity and imposition of candidates.

Adeniran said, “I have left the PDP for the SDP with my supporters . I left because there is no internal democracy in the PDP. It may interest you to know that Prof. Jerry Gana has also left the PDP.”

When asked if Gana would fly the presidential ticket of the SDP in 2019 as being speculated, Adeniran said, “Whoever will be the presidential candidate will emerge from our convention.”
