The national chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Olu Falae has quit active politics.
Falae, who said he has to quit due to health challenges, added that he would retain his position as head of the SDP while Tunde Adeniran will be the “defacto” chairman of the party.
This is coming less than 24 hours after his party endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for the February 16 presidential poll.
Meanwhile, Falae had earlier endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Falae, speaking when Atiku’s wife, Titi visited the leaders of Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, said All hands must be on deck to ensure that Buhari is voted out.
He said, “All hands must be on deck by to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari does not come back for the second term.
“We have to find ways to do it, this government must not come back, for the sake of all of us, even for the sake of the man (Buhari) himself.
“He does not have the clue of what is going on again, I don’t think he is well, he should just go home and rest. Some characters are hiding behind him to do evil.
“I wish him (Atiku) well, we are on the same page, we are aiming the same result, no one wants this government to come back because the government has failed.
