Mr Fela Durotoye has emerged the standard flagbearer of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN). He emerged as the candidate of the party after a Policy Conference and Presidential Primaries held in Sheraton Hotel, Abuja on 30th September 2018.
Fela Durotoye also emerged as the consensus candidate for the later disbanded Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) a few weeks back with some candidate pulling out of the agreement.
Durotoye in his acceptance and appreciation message thanked his supporters and the party leadership as well fellow contestants. He will be running alongside other Presidential candidates for the Office of Nigeria’s President in 2019.
In thanking supporters he said;
“But this wasn’t my victory yesterday.
It was your victory & that of our nation. Nigeria.
I would like to thank our National Chairman, the BOT, EXCO, State Chairmen, all delegates & members who placed great trust in me.
I would be remiss if I fail to mention members of PACT, particularly Dr Thomas-Wilson Ikubese for President 2019 and Dr Elishama Ideh 2019 who are more than capable to lead our nation but chose to put Nigeria first and entrusted me to carry on their mandates. You all are true heroes & examples of the New Nigeria.”
