FINALLY! Obasanjo’s Coalition For Nigeria Launched In Abuja
Remember we reported that the new movement proposed by former president Olusegun Obasanjo will be launched soon?
This has finally materialized.
The Coalition For Nigeria Movement was launched in Abuja on Wednesday with some former top former government heads in attendance.
However, the main man, Obasanjo, was absent at the launch that took place at the Yar’Adua Centre in the country’s capital, Abuja.
Obasanjo had in a letter, blasted the present administration headed by president Muhammadu Buhari for lacking what it takes to move Nigeria from its current predicament.
Dr. Obasanjo had argued in the statement that the ruling APC and the opposition PDP are incapable of repositioning Nigeria, having lost the confidence of the electorate.
In the letter, he proposed the Coalition for Nigeria Movement, which has gotten the support of top past and present administrators not mentioned.
Present in Wednesday’s launch were former PDP governors Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Donald Duke.
Oyinlola said the movement may later metamorphosed into a political party, but that will be agreed upon by majority of those who subscribe.
“We’re not a political party, at least, for now.
“We recognise the facts that by the dictates of the Constitution, you can only contest on the platform of a political party.”
