Professor Jerry Gana, a former Nigerian Minister of Information, has been declared the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
The declaration was made in a ruling by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday.
Donald Duke had been declared as the presidential candidate of the party after the primary election held in October 2018.
However, Gana had instituted a case against the result in court, basing his case on the zoning and rotation formula of the party.
Giving his ruling, Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf said: “In this instance, the party’s Chairman, Chief Olu Falae, is from the South and Duke is from the South too; the law is clear; there is nothing to write in-between.
