The Alliance for Democracy (AD) has suspended its Presidential candidate, Rafiu Salau and has adopted President Goodluck Jonathan as its flag bearer for the upcoming general elections.

Salau was suspended by the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) after he was found guilty of anti-party activities.

The development was announced by the National Chairman of the AD, Mojisoluwa Akinfenwa after the NEC meeting which held in Lagos on Tuesday, March 10.

“Our decision to endorse Dr. Goodluck Jonathan did not come easy. We had to critically compare his record with that of General Buhari and we can affirm that Jonathan has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that he is a true democrat,” Akinfenwa said.

The party said that Salau was suspended after 41 NEC members indicted him of gross misconduct, anti-party activities and unruly behaviour to the chairman of the party.
