Fela Durotoye May Quit Presidential Race

After the surprise exit of Dr Oby Ezekwesili from Nigeria’s presidential race, another candidate Fela Durotoye said he may step down for either African Action Congress’s Omoyele Sowore or Young Progressives Party’s Kingsley Moghalu.





“I AM READY to come into any coalition talks with my brothers Omoyele Sowore @yelesho and Prof. Kingsley Moghalu @moghalukingsley and to submit myself to any transparent process that will help us arrive at a selection of a Consensus Candidate from amongst us,” Durotoye said in a message posted to his Instagram page.

Durotoye was one of the 11 candidates that formed Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) and eventually emerged a consensus candidate.

The process that produced Durotoye was supervised by Ezekwesili, who was yet to declare for presidency as at then.

Moghalu disputed the outcome of the primary election and insisted he was still in the race.

“PACT did not produce a truly consensus candidate,” Moghalu said in August 2018.

However, Durotoye insisted on Thursday that if the process produces any other candidate apart from himself he is ready to step aside and support the person.

“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,” Durotoye said.

“Let us come together and seize this historic window of opportunity for our generation to select one of us to go ahead of us,” he added.

    1. And that's how the cookie crumbles my dear Nigerians!
      Not until we all hold each other accountable, we'll continue to have hiccups like this and I hope we'll still have a country to call ours eventually!

    2. That one no get shame . Sometimes I feel the shame for her self . After her downfalls at bring back our girls ,one begins to wonder what exactly is her plan. She didn't get the appointment she was promised after bring back our girls, maybe now they will pay her back after her insults on atiku. It's obvious she came out to insult only Atiku and not even the sitting govt that has finished the country with their lack of ideas . Fela on the other hand should join his wife at the make up studio and stop making noise or better still start from house of assembly seems he wants to enrich himself through politics .

  5. Can someone please wake me up from this disaster Nigeria is turning into.
    Everyone is using "coalition"as an excuse!
    Did you all presidential cowards not think about this coalition before declaring your intentions and giving Nigerians false hope of a better tomorrow??!
    I could have voted for a candidate like yourself and Oby but you two have proven to be just like them!
    Are my pained??
    Absolutely No!

  9. Stupid coalition wey Dem dey form. Instead for them to gather support for Atiku and try to defeat this mountain before Nigeria, they are wasting time and resources.

    They would have negotiated for positions where they feel their impact would be felt instantly and use the experience gathered for future aspirations. Eg ..... Oby Ministry of Education
    Moghalu ....Trade & Investment or Power
    Fela ...... Anywhere

    I don tiya for these people Jare. Naija we hail thee. Wasted votes loading

  10. Lmao. Their purpose for joining the race wasn't to win anyways cause they all have zero chances of nearing there. Wetin be their political history? What's the highest political office you've ever held? You just wake up overnight and decide to run for the number one office, come TV and begin blow grammar in Presidential debate and you think you'll win? Hahahaha

  11. Nigerians will make the worst mistake of their lives if they vote in Sowore thinking he will bring true change. Sowore is an Activist not the leader Nigeria needs at this point in time. But I see more gullible, desperate people turning towards him.
    Oshiomole too was once a freedom fighting activist. Seeing his new life who would believe it is the same man.
    Sowore is as corrupt as the rest of them. He too is after his own stomach and pocket, not that he genuinely loves Nigeria.
    I am happy that the electorate are coming to that place where they realise that they have the power to vote out a non performing ruler after 4 years. Our political class will soon realise that despite the juju and cult activities, Nigerians want a better society.
    We still have a long way to go but I trust God to help us by His grace and mercy

    1. Soro whatever isn’t even up for a debate. If Nigeria has a fair election atiku will win. If not, Buhari will. We have only two candidates the rest know what they are looking for, but it’s not the presidential seat. Banky on the other hand, lost cause

      Delete
    2. I agree with you 100%. Sowore is only after money. A man that cut his teeth through blackmail. He has already made a deal with Tinubu to support APC eventually in the hopes of getting office by 2023!

  12. Nonsense and ingredient. No wonder Atiku refuse to debate with them

  13. better for him oo let's know who to face so as not to scatter the vote

  14. I didn’t read, he is not qualified and if presidency comes back to the south, it should be south east.

  15. Someone said it o.
    Someone said it that this was the plan ALL ALONG!!!
    My people!
    Ah to say I'm disappointed in until understatement.
    Is it possible to find people of integrity in this country?
    Big SHAAAAAAAME!!!!

  16. I like this man but it seems you'll want appointments after all. With the coalition talk, they might no win. Those of us that wanted to vote for you will just sit down at home on that day.

  17. I just heard that Inec refused Oby withdrawal ohhh, That if you want to withdraw it should be at lest 45 days to election not weeks

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is what they should have done before now, it’s still not too late. Fela, Prof. Oby & Kingsley and others should come together to support Sowore to take Nigeria back...

  22. I sincerely think they should have chosen a consensus candidate earlier. It would have been a stronger force. U can imagine Oby, Sowore, Moghalu, Durotoye all in the same ship. They may have left it too late but now is a good time to start planning for 2023

    1. Do we plan? That is the major problem with us as a nation. After this February, it becomes business as usual until another year of election. This coalition is coming a bit too late. This is what they should have done since... bring one person out to stand as a formidable force against BUTIKU. But no, everyone wanted to run for presidency. Now this...
