The Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) has registered over three million membership across the country.

The movement, which is being spearheaded by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, was formed to effect political change in the nation ahead of 2019.

Obasanjo gave the figure while speaking at the 14th Annual Lecture of Women in Management, Business and Public Service, held at Eko Hotel and Suites, Lagos on Thursday.

He said the CNM in conjunction with other movements is the way out of the nation’s political problems.

"I am giving them encouragement; I have registered and I believe that as at today, we have registered more than 3 million people.

"My belief is that we need a grassroots movement that can bring the change that this country needs.

"We need the platform and we need the system,” he said.

He reiterated that he would cease to be member the moment the movement metamorphosed into a political party.

The WIMBIZ Annual Lecture series, which is a public forum that attracts over 500 women, is designed to discuss topical issues that affect women, their role in nation building and their personal, business or organisational development.
