Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has stepped down as the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Mr. Donald Duke.
Junaid, a fierce critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, said he decided to step down because of the “many hassles of the SDP”, Punch writes.
The Second Republic lawmaker said he also stepped down as the deputy national chairman of the SDP and had written letters to the chairman of the party, Chief Olu Falae; and Duke.
“It is true. I stepped down a while ago because of the many hassles,” Junaid said.
“I also resigned as deputy national chairman. I have written to Chief Olu Falae and Mr. Donald Duke. However, I have not resigned from the party.”
Though he did not indicate his next move, the Russia-trained medical doctor said there’s no chance he will be supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid.
