Unknown 37-Year-Old Presidential Candidate That Beat Sowore, Moghalu Thanks Nigerians For Nationwide Support

The build-up to the just-concluded presidential election was characterized by interesting activities, with the political scene parading some personalities that brought verve and youthful energy to the fray.

It will be recalled that a  number of young Nigerians indicated interest in occupying the highest office in the land, and buoyed by the signing of the Not-Too-Young-To-Run bill into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on May 31, 2018, they pushed with determination to change the status quo.

The candidates who contested included Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who won the election and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who came second.

Others were Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress (AAC); Olufela Durotoye of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), and the Young Progressive Party (YPP) candidate, Kingsley Mogalu.

However, amid the crowded field of candidates, was a contestant about whom almost nothing was known by most Nigerians but who would later prove to have been somewhat of a dark horse in the presidential race.

At the end of the election, Felix Nicolas of the Peoples Coalition party  (PCP) polled more votes than all his co-contenders, except those of the APC and PDP who were the frontrunners in the contest. He scored a total of 110,196 votes to come third in the election.

Mr. Felix, 37,  who is also the youngest of all the presidential candidates who contested in the election on  Saturday, February 23, 2019, expressed his gratitude in a letter on his official Facebook page on Thursday.

According to Nicolas, “History will bear witness to the valiant efforts of patriotic Nigerians in this sensitive period of elections. Votes were cast, words were spoken, journeys were made and inevitably, in some cases, blows were exchanged. All these have gone to show the passion we sustain to see a better Nigeria; to craft a paradise for ourselves in the land of our birth and pride.”

While also applauding the efforts made by his Presidential Campaign Organization and the party’s leadership, he said, “I will not fail to express resounding gratitude to everyone that saw this political process through. Truly, we have been able to show every observer from the international community, to purported political bigwigs and “God Fathers”, even to the poor masses that must have lost faith in the process, that Power indeed belongs to the people.”

Mr Nicolas noted that “there is a progressive adjustment in paradigm” as the election results collated by INEC continued to trickle in, expressing confidence that, “As the electoral process advances to other stages that will include state elections as well as litigations to iron-out the anomalies of the whole process, we will get to see clearly, how well we have come from yesteryears.”

He described the progress made as “a huge step out of dark ages into the age of enlightenment; civic and social awareness”.

He congratulated other young presidential candidates that took part in the election for the effort they made in challenging the status quo, saying, “We have definitely stepped closer to an inevitable political liberation.”
