2019: Obasanjo’s ‘Coalition for Nigeria’ Movement That Seek To Stop APC And PDP From Power For Launch January 31



The new political movement advocated by former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo, Coalition for Nigeria is slated for launch January, 31.

The former Nigerian leader had, on Tuesday, released a “bombshell” in a letter to the Buhari administration, advising the president to take a “deserved rest” and urging Nigerians to vote him out should Mr. Buhari insist on running.

Mr. Obasanjo advocated the establishment of a movement he called Coalition for Nigeria, to offer a new leadership for the country.

He said the two major parties; the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are unfit to provide leadership.

According to Nigeria’s leading online investigative news medium, PREMIUM TIMES, the new movement is currently being coordinated by a former governor of Osun State and long standing associate of the former ruler, Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

To manage possible ripples that may arise in the process of establishing leadership structures, the movement has opted to appoint what it calls “spokesperson” at all levels.

“Mr. Oyinlola is now acting as the national spokesman; such roles would be appointed at all levels, including state, senatorial zones, down to word level,” said a source close to the secretariat, reports the PREMIUM TIMES.

The movement is expected to be unveiled at an undisclosed location in Abuja.
