<h1>The Presidential Candidate of Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), Mr Fela Durotoye, on Wednesday said that he was not a politician and would retain the status if elected president.</h1>

<p class=””>Durotoye made the assertion in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos at the 2018 The Future Awards Africa in Lagos where he was a guest.</p>

<p class=””>NAN reports that the Ibadan-born Durotoye, an Alumnus of the John F Kennedy School of Government, is a business consultant, leadership expert and motivational speaker.</p>

<p class=””>On the reason for running for the highest office in Nigeria, Durotoye said his intention was to represent a generational change in the leadership structure of Nigeria away from politics.</p>

<p class=””>“<em>I have said it that I am not a politician and will never be a politician. I am a nation builder.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“I have always insisted that there is a need to take politics out of governance. We need nation builders so that we can have policy formulators and not politics.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“I think it is policies that change the life of the people and not politics, the economy of the nation is in the hands of the policy articulators not the politicians.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“We should be thinking of those that are ready to build this country through good policies and look away from the politicians who are just to milk the country,”</em> he said.</p>

<p class=””>Durotoye urged the electorate to look out for leaders that were trustworthy to move the nation forward and not those that want to get to office for their selfish gains.</p>

<p class=””>“<em>We need honest people in governance, those that know the onions of good governance. So, in this light we need to talk to our people at the grassroots and educate them.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“There is a call to action because everybody’s grass has its roots and it is our responsibility to make the call for the desired change.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“The change we are talking about is not about me but the whole generation of which I belong to, my presidential race is generational.</em></p>

<p class=””><em>“I am frank person and honest, I want everyone to do what is right and engage in the right attitude; we should speak out on what we want to change about governance in Nigeria,’’</em> he said. </p>
