Court declares Jerry Gana as SDP Presidential Candidate, nullifies Donald Duke’s Election



Professor Jerry Gana

An FCT High Court has declared former Minister of Information Professor Jerry Gana as the winner of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) presidential primary, thus its presidential candidate.

Channels reports that Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf made the declaration on Friday in his ruling and nullified the candidacy of former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke, as the party’s flagbearer.

Gana had filed the lawsuit seeking to be declared winner of the primary, in line with the party’s zoning formula.

Duke polled 812 votes to defeat Gana who polled 611 votes in the primaries, according to the party.

    Duke is a joke.he doesn’t seem to know the league in which he is playing. Not that he is not capable, but the electorate has not evolved to that level. Same goes for Sowore and Durotoye. We just have to evolve to two to five serious parties and ship out the likes of the current crop of politicians
