Chairman of Chairmen ,State Chairmen’s Forum not in our Constitution,says SDP
In what appears to be acceptance of the obvious fact that the parallel National working committee created under the leadership of Prof. Tunde Adeniran with Shehu Gabam as its national secretary lacks any legal backing, the duo now use a non existent “Forum of SDP State chairmen” to make public statements for want of credibility.
It may be recalled that one Mr Okeh Idawere addressed journalists including channels Television crew on Wednesday 15th July 2020 in his capacity as the chairman of SDP chairmen at the parallel secretariat opened by Prof Adeniran.
According to the statement signed by Alfa Mohammed ,the National Publicity Secretary, SDP,”Flowing from that anomaly, it becomes imperative to let the public know that SDP National working committee elected and constituted in 2016 is still intact and functional under the able leadership of the acting National Chairman, Chief Supo Shonibare and has not ceded its functions or powers to any self appointed entity in any guise.
“The National Secretary, Alh Hussaini Saleh Dass has therefore directed that the general public and government agencies be informed to disregard any statement coming from any group or person parading himself as chairman of SDP State chairmen and speaking for SDP, as the only legal body constitutionally permitted to speak for our great party, SDP is the National working committee led by Chief Supo Shonibare. “
