2019 Election: I Am Ready To Sacrifice My Presidential Ambition, Form Coalition With Sowore, Moghalu – Fela Durotoye



Durotoye Salutes Ezekwesili’s Courage

The presidential candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), Mr Fela Durotoye has reacted to the decision of Mrs Oby Ezekwesili to withdraw from the 2019 presidential race.

Durotoye in his reaction commended the courage and selflessness displayed by Ezekwesili.

Recall that as earlier reported by Naija News, Ezekwesili who was flying the presidential flag of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) said her decision to step down was in a bid to help build a coalition viable of defeating the All Progressive Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party in the election. 

Mr. Durotoye in a personally signed statement on Thursday declared that he was ready to form a viable coalition with Omoyele Sowore and Prof. Kingsley Moghalu to choose a consensus candidate that can win the 2019 presidential election.

He said:

“I have always believed that leadership is about service and sacrifice and today, I would like to commend Dr. (Mrs) Oby Ezekwesili for leading the charge to form a viable coalition to presenting a Consensus Candidate for the 2019 Presidential elections.”

“To ensure that an alliance is formed and we present a united front, I AM READY to come into any coalition talks with my brothers Omoyele Sowore and Prof. Kingsley Moghalu and 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 frontline 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.”
