He said: “We are still working hard to get leaders of more political parties to work together and sign the MoU with them with the understanding that we will all produce a single presidential candidate in 2019. They will join us soon.

“What happened on Monday was historic, and we should commend the leaders of the 39 political parties and associations that signed the agreement.

“Now, the President should have received the red card notice and be ready to prepare his handover notes because he is leaving the Presidential Villa come May 29, 2019.”

Asked if he could vouch that those who signed the agreement would not betray the cause, he answered in the affirmative, adding that the signatories “are all men and women of honour.  We rely on our words and we know we will not fail Nigerians because the battle is about the nation and not individuals.”
