President Buhari was adopted by the Social Democratic (SDP) and the Oby Ezekwesili-led civil society group, the Red Card Movement (RCM) pledged allegiance to Atiku.
The SDP adoption of Buhari took place in Abuja after the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting where a communique was issued and adopted by council members who were at the meeting.
The party’s NEC explained why it took the decision. But its National Chairman Chief Olu Falae was absent.
At a public declaration in Abuja yesterday, RCM’s co-Chairman, Dr. Tony Akabuno, said the decision to endorse Atiku was informed by the failure of the APC to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians.
“We have come today to tell the world and our members, that the state champions, the co-chair (Dr.Tony Akabuno) and other co-conveners have dissociated from Oby Ezekwesili and today declare support for the Atiku/ Obi ticket,” he said.
