Donald Duke has been declared the standard flagbearer of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the presidential election by an Abuja Appeal Court on Thursday.
The verdict was reached by a three-man panel headed by Justice Abdul Aboki. In its verdict, the decision by the FCT High Court on December 14 which proclaimed Prof. Jerry Gana as the SDP presidential candidate was laid aside.
The party had declared Duke as the winner of the election and its flag bearer for the 2019 presidential election. SDP said Duke polled 812 votes, while Gana had 611 during the presidential primary election.
