A former governor of Ekiti State, Segun Oni, on Wednesday described as ‘mere speculation’, reports that a former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, would join the Social Democratic Party.
He was reacting to questions from journalists in Abuja after inaugurating the SDP sub-convention committee on reports that Tinubu would dump the All Progressives Congress should he fail to secure its presidential ticket in the 2023 general election.
According to him, contrary to insinuations, the SDP was not in crisis and was therefore not factionalized.
Oni, the SDP governorship candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Ekiti, however, said that SDP remained open to people who share its vision and mission, and people who were ready to deepen democracy and good governance.
Oni said, “Too many speculations! Let me say that we are Social Democratic Party. As far as we are concerned our doors are open to everybody. We are not locking opportunities here. We will wait.
“Every process will be taken seriously and without any preference. So, do not speculate too far. We are going to have our convention.
