Lagos Election: We can never join APC, we can't be seen associating with failures- SDP candidate

The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Lagos, Kunle Uthman has denied rumours that the party has collapsed it’s structure and will be joining the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state ahead of Saturday’s gubernatorial election.

Addressing this on Plus Politcs when asked how true is the rumour, Kunle Uthman said,

“I don’t think it’s rumour. What has happened is that the APC has given this supposed rumour a rubber stamp of the fact that it is true. And that creates a lot of problems.

First and foremost, we have not joined the APC in this election and we can never ever join the APC. And the reason why we can’t join them is, we believe that they have failed. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has failed to serve the people of Lagos State in the last four years. And we believe that his failure is such that anybody who associates with that political party in the forthcoming gubernatorial election is also going to have a stain on himself as a failure.

And because in the SDP, we know as a fact that we have the manpower, we have the competence and we have the cerebral personalities to do the job and we have the manifesto that is citizens friendly, poised for a change, so we cannot be seen to associate with a failure."
