Prince Adewole Adebayo has emerged as the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

He scored 1,526 votes at the party’s National Convention on Wednesday in Abuja to defeat the only other contestant, Khadija Lamidi who polled 83 votes.

The Convention Returning Officer, Umar Ardo said a  total of 1,653 ballots were cast, out of which 1,609 were valid.

In his acceptance speech, the 54-year-old Adebayo, a lawyer and the founder of KAFTAN Television said it was the turn of the Nigerian masses to take over power.

He also vowed that his party will give the APC and the PDP a ‘good fight’ in the 2023 General Election.

“We will campaign to every household, every polling unit, every ward, every local government, every state, every zone, and the entire country.

“We will come out and show to Nigerians that food, water, electricity, housing, education, and medical care are not prayer points,” Adebayo said.

He urged Nigerians to register to vote, join the SDP, and tell others about the party.
