Coalition for Nigeria was launched recently at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, FCT increasing the number of political movements in Nigeria.
At the launch, two former PDP governors, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former governor of Osun State and Donald Duke, also a former governor of Cross River State were in attendance.
In his inauguration speech, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola explained that the movement is not yet a political party and that the movement would transform into a party when the members come to an agreement on that.
The retired general acknowledged that for the movement to make electoral impact, its proponents would need to abide by the Constitution and register as a political party
He also responded to critics who see the movement as an attempt to legitimize the legacy of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who was the democratically elected president between 1999 – 2007.
“To say that we are legitimizing OBJ’s legacy is a bit off the mark,” he said.
The Okuku Prince said the leaders of the movement are not necessarily eyeing political offices for personal benefits, adding that their aim is to help leave a better tomorrow for the younger generation.
The leaders of the movement said Nigerians have been through a lot in the hands of the political elite and canvassed a fresh alternative for citizens by 2019.
The Coalition implores well meaning Nigerians who seek the good of the country to come join hands with them in building better Nigeria.
The coalition website is www.cnmovement.org as it welcomes new members across the nation.
