Durotoye was one of the 11 candidates that formed Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) and eventually emerged a consensus candidate.
The process that produced Durotoye was supervised by Ezekwesili, who was yet to declare for presidency as at then.
Moghalu disputed the outcome of the primary election and insisted he was still in the race.
“PACT did not produce a truly consensus candidate,” Moghalu said in August 2018.
However, Durotoye insisted on Thursday that if the process produces any other candidate apart from himself he is ready to step aside and support the person.
“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,” Durotoye said.
“Let us come together and seize this historic window of opportunity for our generation to select one of us to go ahead of us,” he added.
Mr. Durotoye’s comments appear to send a sense of relief by many political observers who have long believed that the new class of politicians could only make an impact in the 2019 elections by coming and working together in a well crafted coalition.

Now Nigerians can see why @atiku avoided the Presidential debate, it was a calculated arrangement by the FG, Madam Oby, Fela Durotoye & Kingsley Moghalu to discredit him before Nigerians.
Atiku is a wise chap that is a president who can Get Nigeria Working Again against all odds
