Some people are beginning to buy the idea of former president Olusegun Obasanjo to form a Coalition For Nigeria to save the country from collapse.

Latest report has it that at least seven governors, 20 senators and 100 House of Rep members have shown interest to be part of the coalition.

However, they preferred to remain anonymous for now.

“At the last count, seven governors, 20 senators and over 100 House of Representatives members have agreed in principle with Baba to go into this coalition,” a close associate of the former president told Premium Times.

The source added that some past leaders will also be part of the coalition.

On Tuesday, Obasanjo in a blistering and excoriating 13-page statement said Buhari has performed below the expectations of Nigerians and should not seek re-election in 2019.

Obasanjo said what Nigeria needs now is a coalition that is not partisan.

“We need a Coalition for Nigeria, CN. Such a Movement at this juncture needs not be a political party but one to which all well-meaning Nigerians can belong. That Movement must be a coalition for democracy, good governance, social and economic well-being and progress. Coalition to salvage and redeem our country. You can count me with such a Movement.”
