Prof. Jerry Gana,a former Minister of Information, has purchased an expression of interest form to run for president under the platform of the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
Gana said the country could implode if the SDP does not come to the rescue. He said the current President Muhammadu Buhari administration had failed to live up to expectation.
He said this at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, where head gone to purchase the N1 million form.
“With the utmost sense of responsibility and honour, I hereby express my well-considered interest to aspire as the presidential candidate of the SDP, with a view to ultimately contest in the forthcoming presidential elections in 2019.
“Being a patriotic and committed democrat who has carried a burden for the rapid, effective and even development of our dear nation for decades, I am deeply concerned with the very real prospect of Nigeria imploding unless our great party comes to the rescue with a God-fearing, dynamic leadership.
“Nigeria is facing an existential threat, the seriousness and proportion of which have never been witnessed since the end of the civil war,” he said.
