Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, is arguably the King of Open Letters in Nigeria.

He, however promised on Thursday that though he would write another open letter, it would take a while before he would do so.

He also advised women to come out of their self-exclusion from governance and begin to take active part in politics.

Obasanjo, said this at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, while fielding questions from women at the 14th annual lecture of the Women in Management, Business and Public Service, added that the membership of his Coalition for Nigeria Movement had hit three million.

He said the CNM was making an inroad into the grass roots across the country, but he reiterated that he would pull out if the movement metamorphosed into a political party or became partisan in any form.
