Visionary Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT)
Towards the 2019 General Elections. “Election As Revolution” being text of a communique issued after a consultative meeting of Presidential Aspirants on Tuesday 31st July 2018.
OUR RESOLVE AND DECISIONS
In the light of the foregoing and as a response to the collective yearnings and aspirations of our people; we have resolved as follows:
1: Recognising that at the core of our existential challenges as a people and nation is the failure of leadership, we affirm that as the new face of visionary leadership for our country, we are collectively stepping into the fray, to fill the leadership vacuum, and offer leadership at this momentous juncture in our history;
2: We affirm that collectively, we are committed to the process of building a United Front to mobilize our people to lead the change we desire during the 2019 general elections;
3: We understand that Unity is a process, and not an event, and as such, we undertake to effect necessary steps towards consolidating on the process of building a united front based on shared vision and ideas;
4: Towards this end, we are in agreement that internal party processes towards producing eventual party candidates and flag bearers should be allowed to reach its logical conclusion;
5: Furthermore, we are committed to step up the process of building a united front once party candidates have emerged; and shall continually hold consultations among ourselves and broker conversations with our parties towards ensuring that we are able to present a United Front towards the 2019 general elections;
7: Finally, we know that the 2019 general elections will be a historically decisive one; we know that the conditions are ripening for an electoral process with outcome that can be revolutionarily transformative.
8: We embrace this process of the 2019 election as a revolution.
We represent the future of our country, a future which begins now; and we know it.
Also present at the meeting were conveners of the Our Mumu Don Do movement, Deji Adeyanju and Charly Boy.
