Sowore Rejects Durotoye’s Emergence As PACT Consensus Candidate


Presidential aspirant and publisher of Sahara Reporters, Mr. Omoyele Sowore has rejected the emergence of Mr. Fela Durotoye as the consensus candidate of the Presidential Aspirants Coming Together [PACT].

The group known as PACT [Presidential Aspirant Coming Together] was formed earlier in August, 2018,  by a group of 18 presidential aspirants.

Four aspirants, however, withdrew along the line, it seemed, leaving fourteen aspirants to continue with the PACT, viz:

  1. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese;
  2. Comrade Eragbe Anslem;
  3. Sowore Omoyele;
  4. Fela Durotoye;
  5. Tope Fasua;
  6. Sina Fagbenro-Byron;
  7. Jaye Gaskia;
  8. Ahmed Buhari;
  9. Mathias Tsado;
  10. Victor Ani-Laju;
  11. Alistair Soyode;
  12. Godstime Sidney Iroabuchi;
  13. Clement Jimbo, and,
  14. Elishama Ideh.

As at the time of voting proper, another four were absent:

  1. Jaye Gaskia
  2. Tope Fasua
  3. Sowore Omoyele, and,
  4. Comrade Eragbe Anslem.

Meanwhile, the former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Deputy Governor, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu joined the PACT.

That ensured that only eleven aspirants participated in the first stage of the process that voted for any one of their 10 co-aspirants.

The eleven are:

  1. Kingsley Moghalu
  2. Thomas-Wilson Ikubese
  3. Fela Durotoye
  4. Sina Fagbenro-Byron
  5. Mathias Tsado
  6. Ayodele Favor Oluwamuyiwa
  7. Victor Ani-Laju
  8. Godstime Sidney Iroabuchi
  9. Clement Jimbo
  10. Elishama Ideh
  11. Felix Nicholas

Mr.  Sowore explained why he pulled out of PACT, saying he disagreed with Fela Durotoye and Kingsley Moghalu

Fela Durotoye won the election over the likes of Kingsley Moghalu and Omoyele Sowore both of whom rejected the defeat.

Watch Sowore addressing the election on video:

Moghalu has also issued a statement rejecting the outcome of the election.

In the statement, he assured his followers that he is still in the race and that they should not despair.

The election was monitored and observed by a former Minister of Education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwezili who described the process as transparent and credible.

Ezekwesili said she wondered when she subsequently saw the tweets on their PACT from Prof. Moghalu rejecting the PACT election that saw Durotoye emerge as consensus candidate.
