- Chief Olu Falae has urged Nigerians to vote wisely during 2019 general elections
- The national chairman of SDP also urged Christians across the country to continue to cohabit peacefully to engender lasting peace, security and order
- Falae, however, noted that his party had presented Nigerians with an alternative candidate for 2019 elections
The national chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Chief Olu Falae, has advised all citizens to vote for credible leadership in 2019 to realise the needed transformation.
Daily Trust reports that Falae, in his Christmas message, urged Christians across the country to continue to cohabit peacefully to engender lasting peace, security and order.
Legit.ng gathered that in a statement signed by the party's national publicity secretary, Alfa Mohammed, Chief Falae also implored them to emulate the exemplary life of Jesus and pray for peace in Nigeria.
“One of the cardinal teachings of the Christian religion is that adherents of the Christian faith must be at peace with all men.
“In this trial moment that Nigeria is experiencing sundry security challenges characterized by wanton killings and destruction of property, we want to seize this occasion to enjoin all Christians as they celebrate Christmas to reflect on the teachings and doctrines of Jesus Christ”, the statement said.
Falae said since the well-being of the citizens of the country was the uppermost priority of SDP, the party had presented Nigerians with an alternative candidate that could transform the country, urging them to vote wisely in the coming election.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Social Democratic Party (SDP) said it had received a Federal High Court judgment directing it to recognise Jerry Gana as its presidential candidate for the 2019 election.
The party’s deputy national chairman, Abdul Isiaq, disclosed this when he received Gana who paid a courtesy visit to the party national secretariat on Wednesday, December 19, in Abuja.
