The political movement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Coalition for Nigeria is expected to be launched January 31.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo had in the statement where he advised President Buhari against running in the next Presidential election announced plans to join hands with a movement ‘Coalition for Nigeria (CN)’ to fight against the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in next year’s elections.
He had said, “I, therefore, will gladly join such a Movement when one is established as Coalition for Nigeria, CN, taking Nigeria to the height God has created it to be. From now on, the Nigeria eagle must continue to soar and fly high.
“CN, as a Movement, will be new, green, transparent and must remain clean and always active, selflessly so.”
However, it was reported that the movement is currently being coordinated by a former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
The movement is expected to be unveiled at an undisclosed location in Abuja.
“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.
“Prince Oyinlola is now acting as the national spokesman; such roles would be appointed at all levels, including state, senatorial zones, down to ward level,” a source close to the secretariat told Vanguard.
