The Social Democratic Party (SDP) denied cooperating with the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 elections.
The party urged its followers and members of the public to ignore the “false claim”.
The National Publicity Secretary, Rufus Ayenegba, addressed a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday.
Aiyenigba responded to Alfa Mohammed’s claim that the SDP was considering an alliance with the APC and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
The spokesman stated that Mohamed, the former deputy for national propaganda, is no longer a member of the party.
Ayenegba indicated that the leadership has disavowed the comments and posts attributed to the former official.
Mohamed was removed from the position of Deputy Spokesperson in November 2018 and suspended in March 2019 by the National Action Committee (NWC).
Ayenegba said the National Executive Committee expelled Mohamed in August 2019, a decision that was endorsed by the National Congress in June 2022.
Currently, Mohamed is a member of the General People’s Congress party and is even a strong member of one of the groups supporting this party.
He noted that “there is no way that a man playing such a role in the APC can be said to be an official of the Social Democratic Party.”
