After much deliberations on contesting for presidency or not, Fela Durotoye has finally decided to take the bull by the horn to run for presidency come 2019.
The 46 year old motivational speaker declared this today after carrying out critical research on what political party to join. His words;
“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 any other; sharing common ideology, principles, and a truly democratic internal process, that is open for all to aspire. The party that provides a level playing field for the best candidate to emerge at all levels of legislature and executive office. That party, ladies and gentlemen is the alliance for new Nigeria”.
“Today 22nd of February, 2018, I formalise my membership with the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), and become a member of this great party. I believe it is safe to have found my political home, and I truly believe this will be the home for all nation builders.”
He further explained the motives and passion behind this great decision of his;
”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 and 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”.
Speaking on why he chose ANN instead of either PDP or APC, the leadership enthusiast mentioned god-fatherism as one of the major set backs posed by these parties. Fela strongly believes that the said parties can not deliver a new Nigeria.
