The Social Democratic Party (SDP), one of the registered political parties in Nigeria, has clarified its position regarding the recent reports circulating in the media.

The party noted that the reports had suggested the SDP, alongside other major opposition parties in Nigeria, is involved in forming a coalition against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

Alfa Mohammed Esq., National Publicity Secretary of SDP, in a statement, however, said: “We acknowledge the existence of a substantial conspiracy, reportedly backed by influential opposition figures and certain private sector entities.

“This conspiracy aims to establish a formidable coalition, including opposition parties, trade unions, and civil society organisations.”

Objective of coalition against current administration, by Mohammed

The National Publicity Secretary of the party also stated: “The goal is to turn public opinion against the current government, potentially leading to its undemocratic removal.”

He said: “However, the SDP firmly distances itself from such unpatriotic and undemocratic political tactics.

“To eliminate any confusion, it is important to note that the mainstream SDP, currently embroiled in a legal struggle against certain factions illegitimately recognised by INEC, is committed to engaging with President Tinubu’s administration in a constructive manner for the next three years.

“This approach excludes any involvement in schemes aimed at destabilising the government or distracting its focus.”

Appeal to Nigerians for vigilance to harmful propaganda, inciting statements

Mohammed further noted: “We urge Nigerians to remain vigilant and discerning in the face of potentially harmful propaganda and provocative statements that would soon be pouring out from the said coalition.

“Such tactics are designed to erode public confidence in the President and the ruling political class, thereby jeopardising the integrity of our hard-fought democracy.”
