“To ensure an alliance is formed and we present a united front, I am ready to come into coalition talks with my brothers Omoyele Sowore & Prof. Kingsley Moghalu to submit myself to any transparent process that will help us arrive at a selection of a Consensus Candidate from amongst us.
To be clear, 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.
“Once again, I implore the front-line candidates in our generation.
