Fela Durotoye Declares For Presidency Ahead Of 2019 General Election

A consulting guru, leadership coach and public speaker, Fela Durotoye has declared his intention to run in the 2019 presidential election. He confirmed this through a statement he released to the press on Thursday.




Duro said he has committed his life to building Nigeria, listing a number of projects he has executed without the help of the government.


His full declaration speech:


“As you may already know, over the last 13 years, I have committed my life and resources to doing all I can to build a New Nigeria that would be the most desirable Nation to live in by December 31, 2025.


From nation building projects like Mushin Makeover (which was recorded as the largest non-governmental urban renewal project in Africa’s history), to raising the standard of education in our schools and higher institutions through projects & initiatives, to helping our young people across our nation Deliver The Future to corporate transformation projects and most importantly championing the largest non-governmental Values Infusion project through the 10 lifestyle personal creed that we share together on this network that has now been endorsed and actively promoted by a multitude of Nigerians across all gender, tribe, social class or religious affirmation.


As I have stated severally on this platform & in public, I have come to the conclusion that Good Governance is critical for any nation to accomplish its full potential. Infact, without good governance every other good work carried out by its citizens would ultimately be like pouring water into a basket and is therefore not sustainable.


This is why it became important for us to set up the RUNNING FOR A NEW NIGERIA platform, where we galvanize a critical mass of people who would participate in the governance process either by VOTING or BEING VOTED FOR at the 2019 General Elections & beyond.


In line with our Values one of which is to “BE A ROLE MODEL WORTHY OF EMULATION”, I had to decide to get involved in the political arena rather than staying on the sidelines and only challenging others to go in.


It is my hope that as I step unto the political scene, many more of our brightest & best will arise to heed our nation’s clarion call to contest for elective offices, win the elections, and most importantly collectively deliver good governance to our nation.

Therefore, to be clear, I am aspiring to contest as a Presidential Candidate in the 2019 General Elections.

A lot of people have asked me “FD, what party will you be running on? Is it APC or PDP”?

Whilst it is true that these parties may have formidable grassroots structures, I strongly doubt that these old parties with their old ideology (of God-Fatherism also known as Selectocracy, Rulership, Money Politricks etc) would be able to deliver to us a New Nigeria.


And so, over the last few months, I have researched into several political parties to determine if their ideologies, vision and values resonate with those we share together on this Network.


I am glad to announce that one party has resonated more with me than others in Ideology, principles & a truly democratic internal political process that is open to all to aspire & provides a level playing field for the best candidates to emerge at all levels for Legislative & Executive offices.

I believe it is safe to say that I have found my political home, which I truly believe would be a HOME FOR ALL NATION BUILDERS.

Today, 2pm, 22nd of February 2018, I would be formalizing my membership with the ALLIANCE FOR A NEW NIGERIA (ANN) and formally joining the party.

ANN is a party founded by Professionals and technocrats with great political insight & wisdom required to build a formidable nationwide grassroot movement within the next 12 months and beyond. The National Chairman is Dr. Jay Osi Samuels, a Medical Doctor and a Renowned Public Health Practitioner respected globally.

As I move further on this noble cause, I’d like you to pray with me for divine wisdom, grace, favor, courage, strength and discernment.


Secondly, it is my desire that you will like I have done decide to step in the political arena & go beyond just registering to vote but also becoming a member of a Political Party where you would have voting rights, ability to choose your own candidates amongst those aspiring for office and where your potential aspirations cannot be stifled by any god father.


I strongly believe that your involvement in the political arena either as a member or aspirant within a political party would strongly enhance our ability to deliver good governance for the New Nigeria.


As you thoroughly consider the various political parties, I’ll like to recommend for your favorable consideration the Alliance for a New Nigeria. I want you to join ANN not just because I asked you to, but only if the Party Ideology resonates with yours as it does with mine.”

  1. Not that he is less qualified than the bunch of idiots we have now or we have had. As a matter of fact, he is more decent, intelligent and equally more qualified and with the condition at hand we need more people like him to contest but unfortunately, we live in a.country where credit is being given to people or being voted for just because of the size of their pocket. Screwed up country

  3. So why did he deny it initially. I might vote him anyway, if his manifesto is really what Nigeria needs.

  4. I don't have a problem with him coming out for the position. However, what I want to know is if he'll do a proper campaign by proper campaign I mean; will he go down to the grassroots cos those people are the major voters (not all these city people who vote with their mouths and not their thumbs).
    If he is not going to go deep into the grassroot areas, uncle jor edakun park well. Don't go and scatter the remaining small vote we have to change our situation

    1. Sweetheart, lol. Sorry I couldnt pass.
      I honestly don't care if he goes down to the grassroots or not. You know why? Many have and didn't deliver. Have we forgotten akara fryers? He may be aiming for the upwardly moving urban population, and he would have a point. BECAUSE, many of these young people are migrating to urban areas for better living standards. And these living standards are what influnces the way they think, in regards to what is available against what is obtainable in rural communities. So john in the city can easily convince his whole family in kuma hills to vote for xx because na him dey see wetin dey happen for road. The only issue here is that others will go There bribing with bags of rice that Mr. Durotoye may not want to offer and poor man mentality will be to chop now not later. Sad!

    1. He initially denied it. Not his associates.
      He wrote on his fb page that he has no intention of contesting for a political office.

      Good thing he changed his mind.

    1. I'm a Cross Riverian who lived in Calabar all through Donald's term. One thing is for sure, he will do the work! But will probably sell the whole country by the end of his tenure and money will be tight.

    2. una dey hear ..he will sell the country and money will be tight??? why nah ? can you explain

    3. @Efik babe anyhow donald better pass this Ben man nau. That one dey sell but we no dey see the money. Contracts wey hang e no wan pay, dey bring dry yeye ideas. Abeg leave matter. The only peoole who didn't like donald were civil servants cos he cut down on unnecessary allowances. By the time Ben is done with us we will weep.

  15. I HV been campaigning for him since I knew he was contesting. Whether he wins or not I'm voting for him cos I'm voting my conscience.

  16. Will definitely vote for him, he's such an inspirational speaker n so intelligent. Real breath of fresh air

    ReplyDelete
  17. Leading a country is not by inspirational or motivational talk. I really like him but the intricacies of a multi-faceted country like Nigeria Is more than looking smart and talking smart. Idealism cannot work in politics. That is facts!

    He sure is positioning himself, which is not bad sha. Anyways, he will be rewarded with ministerial position by the time it is all over!!

    1. Please will all due respect he is not positioning shit! If you have followed him over the years he has always been clean cut! The right ppl will introduce the right policies, fela is sensible, articulate and smart
      ...don't waste your vote on yet another tried and failed politician abeg... 4 years is a LONG ASS TIME...I can't do another 4 years with theses expired leaders who talk more than they act. Besides our current politicians are just recycling themselves through the senate, government house and political appointments ....THEY ALL NEED TO GO

    2. He is better than same old people ruling us. Let’s have a young leader new ideals for a change.
