The communiqué was jointly signed by the SDP Acting National Vice-Chairman, South West, Mr Bade Falade and party chairmen from Ekiti, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Lagos and Ondo states.
“We viewed critically the recent protests in the country as a manifestation of people’s right to demand for fairness in governance.
“The #EndSARS protests from all indications is meant to make government more responsive to the suffering of the people and rebuilding decayed infrastructure which is universal in Nigeria.
“We believe in Social Democratic Party (SDP) as a credible alternative to other political parties who have misgoverned and misruled this country in the immediate time past,” it said.
According to the communiqué, the South-West leadership of SDP reaffirms its commitment to the spirit of the National Working Committee (NWC) of party to do things properly and judiciously in the best interest of the party.
The communiqué said that the NWC should ensure the implementation of Article 13, Section 2, Sub-section ii of SDP constitution as it relates to filling vacuum in the position of the National Chairman, noting that the office was currently vacant.
“We implore the rank and files of the party across the country to embrace dialogue at all times rather than resorting to unending legal actions and, or battles,” the communiqué added.
