Motivational speaker Fela Durotoye now looks set to do battle with some of Nigeria’s most powerful politicians in the 2019 presidential election.

Mr Durotoye has received his nomination form from his party, Alliance for a New Nigeria (ANN) and he shared the news on his Instagram page with a photo of himself with the form.

He also revealed that the party’s primaries will take place on Saturday September 29.

This is what he wrote on IG:


A few minutes ago, after satisfying all requirements, I received the nomination form of our party @alliancefornewnigeriato officially express my interest to serve our nation in the capacity of the President.

This is an incredibly humbling moment for me

As I told the Board of Trustees, this nomination form was provided by YOU

Your donations, prayers and kind support made this all possible

Many people had said expecting people to be committed enough to own this campaign was unrealistic as Nigerians don’t donate to politicians or politics. .

You proved them wrong, because you and others #JustLikeYou made this possible

Thankfully, all I am and would ever be is a nation builder .. and soon, a nation builder holding political office ????????.

The next hurdle to cross is the @alliancefornewnigeria Presidential Primaries holding on the 29th of September, 2018..

With your prayers and continued support, we’ll have some more good news to share.

Until then, my heart is filled with so much gratitude.

THANK YOU for giving someone #JustLikeYou the privilege to represent you.

Together, we will deliver a #NewNigeria ????

God bless you.
