I am ready for coalition with Sowore, Moghalu, says Durotoye


1min read

FELA Durotoye, the Presidential Candidate for Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) has said he is ready for a coalition with other two candidates: Omoyele Sowore of the Action Alliance Congress and Kingsley Moghalu of the Young Progressive Party.

Durotoye made this known on his official twitter handle (@feladurotoye) on Thursday hours after Oby Ezekwesili, the presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria announced her withdrawal from the race.

Esekwesili had pulled out of the race on the note that she was ready to build a coalition to defeat the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples’ Democratic Party in the presidential election come February 16.

Fela commended Ezekwesili for leading the charge to form a viable coalition to presenting a consensus candidate for the 2019 presidential elections.

He said he had always believed that leadership is about sacrifice and service. Duroteye tweeted: “I am ready to come into coalition talks with my brothers Omoyele Sowore and Prof. Kingsley Moghalu,”

Durotoye declared to submit himself to any transparent process that will arrive at a selection of a consensus among the three parties—ANN, AAC and YPP.

He promised to support any of Moghalu and Sowore if he was not selected. “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,” Fela tweeted.
