According to a statement by the Adebayo Presidential Campaign Organization in Abuja, he said the SDP was inspired by Chapter 2 of the 1999 Constitution which states that sovereignty belongs to the people.
He said that the leadership, therefore, is made up of the people and their job is to ensure the welfare of the people.
He said that one of the main problems facing the country is poverty everywhere despite its abundant blessings of material and human resources.
Adebayo said that in certain parts of the country, some people do not have food to eat to the point of picking up leftovers in landfills to feed their children.
“If you go through some areas at night, you will see some people sleeping everywhere on the streets, without shelter.
“If you go to the hospitals, the patients are on the floor, without a bed, just one doctor with thousands of patients.
