The Presidential Candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria, Fela Durotoye has said that he is ready for a coalition with the Presidential Candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Kingsley Moghalu and African Action (ACC), Omoyele Sowere. Mr Durotoye made his declaration known through a series of tweets on his social media platform.
His comments come after the Presidential Allied Congress Party (ACP), Oby Ezekwesili on Thursday withdrew from the Presidential race. “I have always believed that leadership is about service & sacrifice & today, I would like to commend Oby Ezekwesili for leading the charge to form a viable coalition to presenting a Consensus Candidate for the 2019 Presidential elections. “To ensure an alliance is formed and we present a united front, I am ready to come into coalition talks with my brothers Omoyele Sowore & Prof. Kingsley Moghalu to submit myself to any transparent process that will help us arrive at a selection of a Consensus Candidate from amongst us.
“To be clear, if the process produces any other candidate apart from myself, I am ready to support whoever the Consensus Candidate is and to do all I can to support the coalition to win the 2019 Presidential elections for our generation. “Once again, I implore the front-line candidates in our generation. “Let us come together and seize this historic window of opportunity for our generation to select one of us to go ahead of us …so that All of us can come together and speak with one voice at the 2019 General Elections.
“Together, we can do the perceived impossible. Our generation is depending on us. “We must not let them down”. Signed, Fela Durotoye Presidential Candidate Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) @ANNigOfficial.
