Muhammed stated that most SDP leaders would have supported Tinubu to become the party's presidential candidate.

Mohammed had said, “I would not be surprised if the largest body of the SDP decides in near future to adopt Tinubu for president and thus cause further division in the party, especially if the court fails to determine which of the SDP factions is authentic shortly.”

But Aiyenigba, in a counter message, said Mohammed has ceased to be an SDP member since 2019.

Aiyenigba claimed that Mohammed is unknown to the party and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“The truth of the matter is that he ceased being a member of the SDP in 2019. The general public is, therefore, advised to disregard him.”
